"VMware is making it easier by setting up and testing application environments in virtual server spaces before you deploy them on production systems," Clabby explained.
Stage Manager also automates some of the functions of the system administrators.
"It is acting like a systems administrator saying 'this has to be set up like that.' It is enabling you to deploy immediately by doing all of that work for you," he added.
The new product also minimizes the amount of hardware that is typically used in the pre-deployment process, stated Melinda Wilken, director of marketing at VMware.
"IT teams use a lot of physical hardware, a lot of dedicated physical hardware that is not used all the time and only used when you are working on a specific stage."
