Bridging the gap of virtualization and physical infrastructure - integrating APC by Schneider Electric's Data Center Infrastructure Management with Microsoft & VMware This interactive presentation introduces the virtual integration between APC by Schneider Electric's data center infrastructure management solution StruxureWare Central, and systems for managing virtualized environments. StruxureWare Central allows end to end data center infrastructure management software for monitoring and control of power, cooling, security and energy usage from the building through IT systems. In he latest release of StrxureWare Central, virtual machine management and physical infrastructure management are now talking to each other so as to maximize the benefit of virtualization by answering the questions: Which VMs are on a host server with compromised physical health? Power Cooling Where should I move a VM, or add a new one? What is the best "healthy" host server? How do I find this place? How do my VMs migrate? When a physical event occurs, who/what will move the VMs? Is this an automated or a manual process? Effect on business process? In a physical event, what business process(es) could be impacted?
