vExpert Cloud Management July 2020 Blog Digest


Hey everyone! Just a few days later than usual but it’s finally here! Your vExpert Cloud Management Blog Digest for July 2020. Every month we share a handful of blogs created by our vExpert Cloud Management Community. These blogs are written by industry professionals from around the vCommunity and often feature walkthroughs, feature highlights, and news for vRealize OperationsvRealize Network InsightvRealize Log InsightvRealize Automation, and VMware Skyline. The vExpert title is awarded to individuals who dedicate their time outside of work to share their experiences and useful information about VMware products with the rest of the community. vExperts share their knowledge in many ways including presentations at VMware User Groups (VMUG), writing blog posts, and even creating content on YouTube. This month our community has been busy exploring the world of Kubernetes through the eyes of vROps and Log Insight, customizing all the things with vRealize Automation, and sharing tips and tricks learned along the way that may just come in handy. There’s even an awesome vRA overview presentation from Ravi Kumar. Enjoy!!
