Under pressure to reduce IT costs, companies are seeking the benefits of cloud computing and infrastructure virtualization. However, the adoption of these new solutions is hampered by concerns including VM sprawl (the proliferation of virtual machines without adequate IT control) and waste of resources that are not reclaimed when not used. In addition, new methods of performance analysis are required to monitor and maintain quality of service.

Axway OmniVision specifically addresses heterogeneous IT management issues such as reducing IT infrastructure TCO through better resource allocation, anticipating and guaranteeing quality of service for critical applications and facilitating relationships between IT and business managers.
