Efficiently Manage Virtual Machines with Thinfinity's Instance Management Panel

Instance Management Panel


Imagine a scenario where an IT administrator needs to oversee and manage a fleet of virtual machines (VMs) deployed across various departments in a company. The Instance Management Panel in Thinfinity Workspace becomes an indispensable tool in this context. The administrator can swiftly refresh the status page to get real-time updates on each VM's operational state using the Refresh Button. If there's a need to locate a specific VM, perhaps one allocated to the finance department, the Search Function enables quick and precise retrieval. The panel's clear display of Instance Names, VDI Model IDs, and IP Addresses aids in easy identification and tracking of each VM. Moreover, the Assigned Users column helps in monitoring which employee has access to which VM, ensuring proper resource allocation and security. The ability to start, stop, or delete VMs from the Action Options provides the administrator with complete control over the VM lifecycle, crucial for responding to changing organizational needs or resolving technical issues promptly
