Pain Points Prior to Lifecycle Manager
                                  Was that VM
                                  approved?
        Can I delete
         this VM?
                                                 When was
                                                  this VM
Is that VM still                                 created?
     in use?




    How much
    does this                                    Does that VM meet
    VM cost?                                      our standards?


                                        Who
                   Who owns           changed
                   this VM?           this VM?

 Typical Lab Infrastructure is an IT Headache

           Server sprawl – under desks, in closets
           Aging, cast-off hardware
           Dirty systems – inability to maintain “clean state”
           Users and IT bogged down in provisioning requests

  Risk of production downtime is reduced by splitting

      Many shadow instances of the application for each stage.
 Leads to server sprawl, configuration drift, lack of coordination, and
     inability to implement changes accurately into production.
