Sponsored by SearchServerVirtualization
Automation isn't new, but as virtualized environments become more complex, admins are seeing a bigger need for features that help them manage their virtual data centers. We'll continue to see improved built-in automation features.

This level of automation can save admins a lot of time in highly virtualized data centers.
