A quick post today – focusing on real world customer stories about vCenter Operations from VMworld 2011.
To start with, here’s a great video Chad Sakac posted about how vCenter Operations helped diagnose a network latency issue that plagued the first day of the Hands on Labs at VMworld 2011. In his words “It was really cool to be able to use vCenter Operations to correlate issues across “infrastructure siloes” … and ultimately resolve the issue”.
In the previous post, I referred to VMworld 2011 super session “SUP1018: Managing Virtual and Cloud IT Environments – A Roadmap to Well-managed ITaaS” where Ramin Sayer, VP Products, Cloud and Virtualization Management discussed strategic roadmap and direction for VMware’s management offerings. From 35:00 to 50:35, there is a great interview with Michael McGibbney, Vice President, Engineering at American Express discussing the IT management challenges in the cloud era.
Next check out another VMworld 2011 session CIM4280: VMware vCenter Operations in the Real World where three VMware customers – Stanford School of Medicine, Maximus and Kaiser Permanente talk about their experience with vCenter Operations.
