VMware Lab Manager

VMware Lab Manager is a software development and testing tool that enables designers and engineers to pool network and storage resources. Lab Manager provides all the members of a software development team with a fully equipped data center, facilitating collaboration among individuals using diverse operating platforms and facilities.

The primary purpose of VMware Lab Manager is to simplify and streamline the process of gathering and interconnecting machines, installing and maintaining operating systems, adding and updating applications and resolving problems such as software bugs. Equipment, overhead and staffing costs can be reduced while increasing the quality of the end product. VMware Lab Manager supports open, continuous communication among members and subgroups within a large, diverse development team.

VMware Lab Manager allows for both real-world and functional testing, making it possible to isolate and eliminate defects early in the development cycle. The process of developing upgrades and patches is streamlined. The troubleshooting process is orderly and straightforward. Administrators can maintain constant control over software utilization, performance and activity, even when the underlying hardware is modified, expanded or upgraded. Lab Manager supports VMware Infrastructure 3, a software suite designed to centralize and optimize desktop management and data center resources through virtualization.
