Welcome to episode 91! This week we cover vRealize Operations Cloud and how you can use this to provide assessment services for customers who wish to migrate to cloud in a simple and clean manner. Assessing a customer environment is a task that is necessary to understand the current status of their footprint, the complexity, the security and importantly the applications. Getting this wrong by using free tooling of home grown scripts can be costly and often providers need to build in additional cost to migration contracts to allow for the unknown. What is the unknown risks could be reduced? Providers could then be more competitive on cost, have a better migration plan and right size the destination cloud resources. The good news is that vRealize Operations Cloud Assessment dash-boarding does this out of the box and at a small cost for VMware Cloud Providers – you only pay for what you use, when you use it.
vRealize Operations Cloud is a SaaS solution available to all VMware Cloud Providers under the MSP agreement and means that Cloud Providers needn’t deploy a complex vRealize footprint on the customer premise, just a simple collector appliance and within minutes you are getting the information you need to derive a deep assessment of the customer domain.
You can compliment vRealize Operations Cloud with the True Visibility suite plugins with some simple clicks and start getting deep application statistics also, helpful to identifying a customers application estate and application group migrations. Naturally if you have a complex environment, you should also consider using vRealize Network Insight Cloud assessment as well to understand more about the customer networks and security posture.
Take a look at this Feature Friday to understand more about how vRealize Operations Cloud can assist you with customer migrations to your cloud.
