Tools for managing the data center components behind VDI

VDI incorporates many different parts of the data center, but the management consoles provided with VDI software don't give IT pros a way to see or manage the cogs behind the wheel -- the servers, storage and the network.

That means IT pros may waste time trying to pinpoint performance issues and troubleshooting the wrong components. There are, however, third-party tools specifically for VDI that manage the back-end components.

There are software tools for monitoring the different components of virtual desktop environments. For example, there are SolarWinds and Ipswitch for network monitoring, Zenoss for server, network and cloud monitoring, and ManageEngine, which offers asset management tools for network, desktop, server and applications.
