VMware Stage Manager relieves process and infrastructure inefficiencies while minimizing risk associated with releasing new or updated systems into production. VMware Stage Manager uses virtual machines as standardized software containers to run IT services and business applications on VMware Infrastructure. You can quickly and consistently transition service configurations through the stages of the release process –integration, testing, staging and user acceptance testing – into production. VMware Stage Manager gives you a single viewpoint for managing all service configurations running in the enterprise. VMware Stage Manager inherits resource pools from VMware VirtualCenter and dynamically assigns them to particular services and stages, giving you unprecedented control over the use of datacenter resources.
With a purpose-built interface for visualizing, managing and automating service transition activities and processes, VMware Stage Manager empowers you to:
- Manage and automate the change, configuration and release processes for production-bound software systems.
- Visualize, organize and streamline resources needed for pre-production and service transition activities.
- Reduce server sprawl and increase the resource utilization efficiency of IT services hosted on VMware Infrastructure.
- Ensure all environments used for pre-production integration and testing are exact copies of current production systems.
