Now Available: VMware vSphere with Operations Management

By: Michael Adams, Group Product Line Marketing Manager, Cloud Infrastructure

Today, we are pleased to announce the general availability of VMware vSphere with Operations Management (read the February 12, 2013 press release).

Customers have achieved tremendous cost savings and IT agility by virtualizing their server hardware. To help them better monitor and manage VMware vSphere and business critical applications running in virtualized environments, VMware vSphere with Operations Management combines VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite Standard Edition with every VMware vSphere edition in a convenient, single SKU.

VMware vSphere with Operations Management is a new VMware vSphere product line that helps customers make the most of their investment in VMware vSphere by delivering deep insights into health to pro-actively avoid bottlenecks for improved platform and application availability and performance. Additionally, VMware vSphere with Operations Management enables customers to optimize their virtual environments and make the most efficient use of resources through integrated capacity planning.

Customers that rely on both VMware vSphere and the VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite have detailed substantial improvements in key performance metrics as well as operational and business benefits, including:

  • Reduced Capex costs by up to 30 percent;
  • Optimized capacity, improving utilization by up to 40 percent and consolidation ratios by 37 percent;
  • Improved application availability and performance, cutting downtime by more than a third and reducing the time it takes to find and resolve problems by up to 26 percent; and,
  • Nearly double the operational savings they receive from VMware vSphere alone.

VMware vSphere with Operations Management is available with a simple and scalable per processor licensing model – with no core, vRAM or number of virtual machine limits – so customers can deploy more virtual machines and further optimize their resource utilization without having to worry about added costs.
