vCenter Configuration Manager
Automate configuration management across virtual and physical servers, workstations, and desktops with VMware vCenter Configuration Manager. Increase efficiency by eliminating manual, error-prone and time-consuming work.
- Avoid configuration drift by automatically detecting and comparing changes to policies
- Maintain continuous compliance with out-of-the box templates and toolkits
- Automate server and software provisioning in the datacenter
Automate and Control Server and Desktop Configuration Changes
VMware vCenter Configuration Manager's policy-driven automation detects deep system changes and identifies whether that change is within policy - an expected and acceptable behavior based on industry, regulatory, or your own self-defined best practices - or whether that change has created a compliance violation or security vulnerability.
Gain Configuration Insight and Agility While Avoiding Configuration Drift
VMware vCenter Configuration Manager automates critical IT configuration management and compliance processes. By harnessing the power of automation to collect thousands of asset, security and configuration settings from each vSphere, ESX, Windows, UNIX, and Linux server and workstation, and then storing that data in a centralized repository, you have the solution you need to evolve traditional configuration processes into a powerful, business-aligned system delivering unified configuration insight.
Maintain Continuous Compliance with
IT organizations are facing pressure to meet ever-increasing standards related to governance, risk and compliance—whether those standards come from an industry group, government regulators, a governance board, a set of best practices or even your own organization's policies. VMware vCenter Configuration Manager assures the integrity of your virtualized datacenter and lowers IT audit costs by providing automated compliance assessments against VMware and Microsoft security best practice guides, industry best practices, as well as your own policies.
Configuration Manager includes built-in, out-of-the-box compliance templates and toolkits, which contain policy-driven rules, reports and dashboards that ensure security, regulatory and operational compliance. When a violation is detected, Configuration Manager lets you fix the problem with one simple mouse click - right from the automatically identified violation. And that fix can be applied to just one system, a group of systems or even all systems managed.
Automate Software and Server Provisioning
vCenter Configuration Manager allows you to perform physical and virtual system provisioning via a centralized mechanism. You can deploy vSphere to 'bare metal' and then load operating systems into VM containers or to ‘bare metal’ systems. Configuration Manager also automates software provisioning and ties that into the compliance enforcement process.
With Configuration Manager, you can easily create software packages, push packages to systems and guests, automatically find missing software (e.g., anti-virus), and remediate to install required software to non-compliant systems. Packages support commercial and custom software that can then be published to Configuration Manager's distributed software repository and used across the enterprise by Dev, Test, Production, and various geographically dispersed organizations.
