We are happy to announce that vRealize Log Insight Cloud has been tested and certified for the Azure VMware Solution (AVS)! Specifically, customers that are looking to move or extend on-premises VMware environments to Azure can now leverage their favorite suite of products to maintain consistent operations and unified visibility for deep operational insights and faster root-cause analysis. Azure VMware Solution is a Microsoft Azure service jointly built with VMware that provides VMware software-defined data centers consisting of vSphere compute, vSAN storage, and NSX networking provisioned on bare-metal running in Azure regions worldwide.
Datacenters are growing in scale and complexity, extending from private clouds to public clouds and multiple public clouds. Companies need an intelligent and integrated, enterprise-grade solution that automates and simplifies operations management. Azure VMware Solution helps enable migrations of VMware-based workloads from your datacenter to Azure and provides a seamless integration of your VMware environment with Microsoft Azure. Keep managing your existing environments with the same VMware tools you already know while you modernize your applications with Azure native services.
vRealize Log Insight Cloud delivers centralized log management, deep operational visibility, and intelligent analytics for better troubleshooting and security for Azure VMware Solution. It boosts IT organizations’ operational efficiency, mitigates costs arising from unplanned downtime, and reduces organizational risk by providing visibility into security-related events.
Whether on-premises or in the native public clouds, business infrastructure and applications generate massive amounts of logs by the second.
Logs have all the information a business might need for strategic decision making, real-time troubleshooting, auditing, and security. However, businesses might need to monitor thousands of objects in their environments, each generating thousands or even millions of logs. Trying to find the right data among that amount of data at scale is impossibly complex and time consuming.
The scale of machine-generated data is only increasing as enterprises span out infrastructure and scale applications across physical, virtual and multi-cloud environments. Enterprises are adopting the DevOps mindset for better collaboration, continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) to disrupt the older and legacy methods of application development.
Please take a look at the technical documentation page that will show you a deep dive on how vRealize Log Insight Cloud collects and analyzes logs generated in your AVS software-defined datacenter.
