How to avoid VM sprawl and improve resource utilization in VMware and Veeam backup infrastructures

How helpful is this article: 5 / 5 (9 votes cast)

You're facing VM sprawl if you're experiencing an uncontrollable increase of unused and unneeded objects in your virtual VMware environment. VM sprawl occurs often in virtual infrastructures because they expand much faster than physical, which can make management a challenge. The growing number of virtualized workloads and applications generate “virtual junk” causing VM sprawl issue. Eventually it can put you at risk of running out of resources.

Getting virtual sprawl under control will help you reallocate and better provision your existing storage, CPU and memory resources between critical production workloads and high-performance, virtualized applications. With proper resource management, you can save money on extra hardware.

This white paper examines how you can avoid potential VM sprawl risks and automate proactive monitoring by using Veeam® ONE™, a part of Veeam Availability Suite™. Veeam ONE will arm you with a list of VM sprawl indicators and explain how you can pick up and configure a handy report kit to detect and eliminate VM sprawl threats in your VMware environment.
