Folks, today, Ramin Sayar, SVP & GM, Cloud Management Business Unit, VMware, made some key announcements at VMworld, and outlined in this blog post. They include VMware vRealize Suite, VMware vRealize Operations Insight, and VMware vRealize Air Automation. You can read more about the vRealize Suite in an upcoming blog post by Sajai Krishnan, VP Product Marketing, Cloud Management Business Unit. In this post, I’d like to provide you with more information about a very important piece from today’s announcements…vRealize Operations Insight!
I am thrilled to share that today we are launching VMware vRealize Operations Insight 5.8, a unified IT operations and log management solution for performance management, capacity optimization, and real-time log analytics, using predictive analytics leveraging both structured and unstructured data, for proactive issue avoidance and faster problem resolution. It is available as an add-on to VMware vSphere with Operations Management (“vSOM”).
For businesses of all sizes using VMware vSphere, who are concerned about application downtimes, return on IT investment, and capital expenditure, vRealize Operations Insight (“vROI”) is the IT operations and log management solution that delivers intelligent operations and policy-based automation from apps to storage across physical and virtual infrastructure. vROI extends intelligent operations management beyond vSphere to include operating systems, physical servers, storage and networking hardware, and is supported by an extensive marketplace of extensions for third-party tools, including Microsoft SCOM, NetApp, Brocade, EMC, Cisco, and others. vROI includes two components – VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite Advanced and VMware vCenter Log Insight.
Here’s a quick list of capabilities provided by vRealize Operations Insight (vROI):
