  • Monitoring Tools
  • Security Tools
  • Admin Utilities
  • Backup Tools

Because there are so many tools available, it is critical to completely understand virtualization management requirements within the network and within the enterprise. PTS provides a Virtualization Management Consulting Service aimed at helping clients make quality decisions on the deployment of virtualization management tools in terms of needs, training, value, limitations, and ease of use.

Centralized virtualization management tools offer several advanced features and ease the management burden for a larger number of servers.

Monitoring tools provide a feature rich and flexible virtual infrastructure monitoring capability.

Server virtualization security solutions can be so much more efficient for a virtual infrastructure than are traditional tools.

PTS focuses upon client current and future needs by completing a virtualization needs analysis, performing a storage and/or virtualization site survey, performing a complete storage virtualization assessment, and developing a comprehensive virtualization technology roadmap and plan independent of specific vendor technologies.
