Virtualization is meant to ease the life of a system administrator, physical and hardware infrastructure that created a lot of bottlenecks have been eliminated over the years. However, the growth in a number of virtual footprints in the VMware environment and increasing complexity require administrators to craft efficient ways of managing everyday repetitive tasks.
VMware Automation Tools come in handy as they enhance the performance of a virtual environment and assist IT administrators to accelerate an end to end routine tasks with a minimal amount of time i.e. taking snapshots.
Why use VMware Automation tools?
Automation tools come with a couple of advantages:
1. Provides Hidden value
Administrative tasks can be too detailed and seasoned to an extent of challenging an administrators skills, hence the need to use an automation tool as it is consistent and efficient.
The administrator focus, therefore, shifts to managing a single automated task, this indeed is a process improvement that ensures compliance and best practices hence providing value to the business.
2. Automation Accelerates processes
Manual processes are automated by these tools. This, in turn, reduces the turnaround time when managing a VMware Environment.
The tools aid alignment of business needs with IT not only by using fewer resources to perform multiple tasks but also saves time, besides it reduces human error in the VMware environment as it is consistent.
With minimal efforts, an administrator can easily maintain their environment.
