Large U.S. Financial Institution
A large financial institution deployed the VMware vCenter Log Insight solution on four nodes supporting 450 hosts and more than 12,000 virtual machines.

Now, with the Log Insight solution, this organization can resolve challenges quickly and spot latent problems before they cause infrastructure issues that impact critical business applications.
“vCenter Log Insight is our primary troubleshooting tool. Root-cause analyses … are 50 percent faster, just given that we don’t have to wade through as many logs to find answers.”
