About this talk

As organizations look to maximize investments in the heterogeneous data center, the issue of vendor interoperability comes to the fore. Capitalizing on multi-vendor industry standards is at the heart of any data center optimization effort. A standards-based approach to IT management can lead to increased flexibility and reduced costs. This session will address the challenges and opportunities in a multi-vendor environment, and explain how the DMTF's Virtualization Management Initiative (VMAN) and standards including the Open Virtualization Format (OVF) and the Virtualization Management Profiles address these issues to form the foundation of an interoperable end-to-end management strategy in today's distributed infrastructures.
