Surgient Webinar to Discuss Best Practices for Reducing Server and VM Sprawl.

Attendees To Learn How Virtualization Technology Can Recover Costly Underutilized Resources

AUSTIN, Texas -- Surgient, the visionary and market leader of self-service virtualization automation and lab management, today announced a Webinar, "How to Reverse VM and Server Sprawl." Scheduled for Wednesday, December 10, 2008 at 2 p.m. ET and featuring Surgient Vice President of Services and Support Brian Wilson, the Webinar will discuss virtual automation and lab management as a way to provision, deliver and recover computing resources, eliminating VM and server sprawl.

Server sprawl has long been a costly expense and waste of valuable resources, causing severe handicaps for enterprises. Previously, many organizations attempted to manage and recover computing resources through manual processes, and virtualization technology emerged to help reverse this ongoing problem.

However, server sprawl has not been entirely resolved and now enterprises suffer from the exponential problem of VM sprawl. Combined, VM sprawl and server sprawl will only worsen without a centralized management system. This underutilization of resources not only impacts capital budgets, but also has a significant effect on productivity, and places limitations on both the production side and non-production side of the data center. The solution? Virtual Automation and Lab Management.

Attendees of this Webinar will learn:

* Best practices and approaches within the datacenter to eliminate VM and server sprawl while reducing costs;

* How to leverage existing computing resources to provide self-service access to users across the enterprise without adding to the sprawl issue; and

* How guaranteed reservations for computing resources are used to eliminate sprawl.
