We are happy announce the availability of VMware vRealize AI Cloud here at VMworld 2020!

vRealize AI Cloud, now included with vRealize Operations Cloud with vRealize Cloud Universal subscription, is a self-optimizing service that uses machine learning and reinforcement learning techniques to continuously learn, adapt, and optimize your storage KPIs to deliver consistent and optimal performance for your mixed application workloads.  As workloads applications get scaled out or migrated to different datacenters or clusters, vRealize AI Cloud will dynamically adjust vSAN tunables to continuously optimize KPIs such as I/O read and write throughput or reducing network latency.


Here’s a sneak peak into the brand new, outcome-based and self-explainable UI accessed from vRealize Operations Cloud:



With three phases of customer beta testing and trials completed, we’ve been able to observe key value benefits such as improved infrastructure performance with an average of up to 60%!  As vRealize AI Cloud continuously collects data and learns about your VMware SDDC’s resource utilization and application requirements to optimizes your environment, our customer trial results have shown decreased monitoring efforts which lead to reduced support tickets and problem escalations.  This allowed extra efforts to be focused on scaling out infrastructure and supporting new business initiatives that were needed as Covid-19 work-at-home requirements pushed businesses to be more creative on how infrastructure is managed and optimized.



Rackspace Technology, a multi-cloud solutions provider and VMware Principal Partner, has many customers that leverage VMware vSAN and were looking for ways to improve infrastructure performance without negatively impacting customer workloads.  Through next-gen technologies, they knew they could optimize their infrastructure for performance with less resource-intensive and time-consuming processes.  After testing vRealize AI Cloud on a 4-node vSAN cluster, they observed vSAN write-throughput increase by 18% and reduced read-latency between 40%-84%!



If you are among the many that need to maximize business continuity, have faster agility for IT innovation, mitigate datacenter complexity and interdependencies of SDDC components to maintain optimal performance, efficiency, and visibility of workload demands; I invite you to attend one or all of the many sessions for vRealize AI Cloud below at VMworld, September 29th through October 1st!
