Application Maintenance, Monitoring and Protection: Competitive Advantages of the Microsoft Private Cloud over the VMware Private Cloud


About This Video

In this module, we look at the competitive advantages of the Microsoft private cloud over the VMware private cloud. First, we will show how VMware delivers the private cloud, building on the analysis we did on the technologies in the first modules of this course.

We will analyze how the cloud is traditionally built in a VMware environment using vSphere, and the vCenter server. Then taking this analysis further, we will show how Microsoft provides comparable solutions to these products, and to additional products such as vFabric Application Director and vCenter Operations Manager. You will learn how Microsoft can manage virtual machines in a more granular way, and monitor the performance of applications running in virtualized and in physical environments.
