Smart VM Placement
Administrators are constantly faced with selecting an appropriate Server to create a new VM. They have to look at the utilization of resources across various servers and pick one so as to optimize the resource utilization. This becomes very difficult as the number of servers grow. ConVirt helps with this problem by providing a "Provision VM" operation on a Server Pool. This advanced feature, selects an appropriate server for the provisioning operations. It uses CPU, Memory and number of configured Vms on the server while making the selection. This smart placement of VM help achieve even distribution of workload among available servers.
