VMware vCenter Lab Manager is the ideal solution for IT organizations that want to provide automated provisioning and management to internal teams. Policy-based access control reduces administrative burden for IT, lowers infrastructure management costs, and enables project teams to deliver applications more quickly and with higher utilization of resources.
Accelerate application development and testing
Give every engineer the equivalent of their own personal datacenter. In seconds, Lab Manager deploys, captures and shares any system configuration, enabling teams to rapidly prototype applications, test software releases on a broader range of system configurations and capture, reproduce and resolve defects more easily. The Lab Manager API, as well as integrations with leading test and build management tools, provides additional automation benefits to allow for continuous testing and integration of software applications. This capability shortens delivery schedules and increases software quality.
Control environments and consolidate storage needs
Eliminate the risk of failed virtual machine updates. Application owners can create faithful replicas of virtual machines for patch testing and seamlessly transition updated configurations across environments connected to different networks, server and storage systems. Linked clones reduce storage footprints by de-duplicating data in similar system images. VMware vCenter Lab Manager allows teams to update systems more quickly, shorten maintenance windows and avoid downtime.
Quickly and efficiently deploy high turnover virtual machines
Provision virtual machines with short lifespans without the need for manual intervention and large storage requirements. VMware vCenter Lab Manager is ideally suited to support a broad range of use cases.
