What are Virtualization Management Tools?
Virtualization management tools are designed to administer the operations and processes of a virtualization environment. The number of virtual machines running in the data center can reach hundreds and thousands. For this reason, it becomes imperative to have visibility into the virtualization environment to understand the overall performance and health of the system.
Businesses use virtualization management tools to administer resources to a variety of machines as well as to handle memory allocation. In this way, virtualization management tools can help make a group of virtual machines run as efficiently as possible.

What do Virtualization Management Tools Do?
The primary tasks performed by these tools are to check to make sure that all virtual machine software and hypervisor versions are up to date. They also establish and maintain connectivity across the environment, and monitor the performance of each virtual machine. They do this by, for example, allocating more memory or processing power to right-size virtual machines for optimal performance.
Virtualization management tools are also required to identify the root cause of any problems. They do this by analyzing the application, server, virtual and storage layers to troubleshoot issues.
Increasingly, virtualization management tools are being asked to handle more strategic management tasks. For example, they are required to identify usage patterns and help to predict future virtualization infrastructure bottlenecks and resource limits.
