Updated 8/2019 – the updated Gorilla Guide to Maximizing VMware vRealize Operations 7.5 is now available for download!
After publishing over 50 blog posts on VMware vRealize Operations Manager here on the VMware Cloud Management blog and after working with the solution for quite a few years, I decided to consolidate that knowledge into a book. My hope is that, out of this book, many more IT Professionals can learn the value of VMware vRealize Operations, its ease of use, and how it can help them to transform their IT operations.
The new Gorilla Guide to… VMware vRealize Operations was designed to be helpful whether you are just getting started with vROps or whether you already have vROps deployed in your datacenter. For those who are new to vROps, the book will walk you though how to get started with vROps, how to deploy it, and how to configure it. For those who already have experience with vROps, the Gorilla Guide will walk you through configuring some of the more advanced features of vROps and what you need to know about the latest and greatest features that are now being offered with vROps 6.7 to allow you to enable self-driving operations in your datacenter!
In the book you’ll learn:
- How to get started with vRealize Operations
- How to deploy and configure vRealize Operations
- What’s new in vRealize Operations 6.7
- And much, much more!
When you read the book you’ll find that this is a very practical, how-to focused book that will walk you through using vROps, step by step.
We gave out almost 1000 copies of this book at VMworld and the best thing about this book is that you can now download it completely free (thanks to VMware) in PDF, Kindle, and EPUB editions ! Just visit the Gorilla Guide to… VMware vRealize Operations landing page to select your edition (or all the editions!).
(and no, you don’t even have to enter your email address to download it!)
I want to send a special thank you to VMware’s Chris McClanahan for his technical review of the book!
