The dawn of virtualization and virtual machines or VMs have brought about massive changes in the industrial and commercial sector. Every organization, be it large or small, are now implementing virtual machines on different scales, and it’s saving them a lot of money and resources.
But while virtualization is an incredibly powerful computing technology, it is by no means simple to handle. That’s why when you’re dealing with virtual machines, you need to monitor them regularly just as you would with a physical machine. Monitoring a virtual machine is a highly technical task, so you also need VMware monitoring software.
No matter the application or strengths of your Virtual Machine, it must rely on the resources you provide. In such a scenario, it is common to run into bottlenecks and performance issues that can undermine your operations’ productivity. Often, these bottlenecks present challenges to the team as frequent issues pose risks to the operation’s health.
Bottlenecks can occur due to various reasons: misconfiguration of resources, processing limits, memory deficiencies, or storage space issues, and resolving such bottlenecks requires a careful and deliberate approach. As each factor is interconnected, the changes we make to one resource will impact all others’ performance and activity.

VirtualMetric announces the newest addition to its infrastructure monitoring suite – Microsoft Azure Stack HCI Monitoring. With the Azure Stack HCI monitoring and reporting tool within VirtualMetric, you can collect, visualize into charts and analyze a wide variety of counters and statistics from your environment, including virtual machines on-premise and within the cloud, Windows server, resources, performance and more.
Like all our solutions, the Azure Stack HCI monitoring software is completely agentless and delivers features like dashboards, dashboards playlists, smart recursive alarms and notifications, inventory collection, and full customization of all reports inside. The advanced Microsoft Azure Stack HCI observability solution can be easily integrated within your infrastructure and you can start to collect metrics from physical infrastructure and virtual machines within minutes.
If you are running a Hyper-V and managing a Hyper-V infrastructure, you should be already familiar with the Hyper-V Best Practices Analyzer. Microsoft Hyper-V Best Practices Analyzer is a built-in Windows feature which scans your server configurations for the specific server roles. After the scan is completed, the BPA generate reports that identify the existing best practice violations.
Microsoft’s Best Practices for optimal Hyper-V performance
The so-called “best practices” are guidelines recommended by Microsoft for how to configure your server in the optimal way to boost the performance or reduce potential risks. The reports generated by the Microsoft Best Practices Analyzer compare these best practices with the current state and configuration of your servers.
Best practices nowadays sound more like a buzzword. The enterprises are so much different and each infrastructure is so specific, that probably to tell that the best practices for all are the same is like to say there is a panacea to all illnesses.

AWS and Microsoft Azure are a preferred choice for virtualization and IaaS platforms for many enterprises, SaaS and PaaS all around the globe. The competition between these two platforms looks like more as the clash of the Titans. Many people think that there should be a winner. But In fact, all users are lucky to select the most attractive features from each provider thus enable a multi-cloud strategy.
AWS and Azure offering dedicates hosts
Motivated by the rising demand for security and the wish of companies to use dedicated physical machines, AWS and Azure now offer the option to order a dedicated server. According to Amazon, dedicated hosts are physical servers with EC2 instance capacity fully dedicated to your use. Dedicated Hosts can help you address compliance requirements and reduce costs by allowing you to use your existing server-bound software licenses.
