VMware vCenter Lifecycle Manager
Standardize Virtual Machine Deployments Across the Enterprise
Reduce the complexity and variance of VM configuration types by creating a standardized catalog of IT services with Lifecycle Manager. Standardized virtual environments lower administrative costs and simplify management in compliance with IT policies. Whether you’re planning to deploy virtual infrastructure more broadly, or apply lifecycle policies to existing virtual machines, Lifecycle Manager simplifies IT administration with a consistent process for deploying and decommissioning virtual machines.
Streamline Virtual Machine Request and Approval Processes
Employ a consistent and scalable mechanism to route and approve all requests for virtual machines in compliance with IT policies. Rather than dealing with one-off requests via the phone or email, Lifecycle Manager provides an easy-to-use request portal for business users to provide all the information needed to correctly provision virtual machines based on business criteria and infrastructure mappings defined by IT. At any time, IT administrators can intervene, change or deploy virtual machines manually.
Track and Control Virtual Machines
Track ownership of virtual machines and keep records of when virtual machine are created, deployed and decommissioned. Lifecycle Manager offers powerful reporting capabilities, so you know exactly when a request was made, approved or denied, and when virtual machines are scheduled to be decommissioned.
