If you manage applications running on virtual infrastructure, you should check out two articles. The first describes how virtualization changes everything about systems and application performance management. The second describes the top five features to look for in virtualized application management.

These articles describe how virtualized environments are much more dynamic from legacy physical server farms, in that they enable new server instances to rapidly spun up and shut down, as well moved across physical hosts, in order to respond to surges in demand while maintaining high levels of availability and performance — and what that means for the sysadmins that need to keep everything running.

As for SpringSource Hyperic, we have some exciting news coming — so watch this space!
