VM automation strategies and benefits for sizable workloads
July 11, 2019 / Stefani Muñoz
VM automation has many benefits, but it's not suited to every workload or environment. It's well matched for the creation and management of vast amounts of VMs. But, for IT administrators with smaller workloads, this process might be detrimental to the cost efficiency of the VMs themselves. Admins looking to automate VM tasks should consider whether or not their workloads are large enough to benefit from automation and if the effort required to support them manually yields greater value. Admins must also be aware of the most common mistakes others fall into, the different automation tools available and how to determine which tool is best suited to their needs.
