Simplify management, maximize operational efficiency and increase IT and business agility as you realize the promise of the cloud with VMware Cloud Management.
VMware Cloud Management delivers comprehensive visibility and control while letting you access and provision IT services in any available cloud. Specifically designed for dynamic virtualized and cloud environments, our automated, intelligent, policy-driven solutions reflect a new management approach that is as agile and flexible as your new IT infrastructure.
Cloud Operations Management
To ensure the health, compliance and efficiency of heterogeneous cloud infrastructures, today’s IT departments require an integrated, analytics-based approach to cloud operations management that enables collaboration between IT infrastructure, applications and operations teams.
Embedded, Integrated Management
The velocity of change, shared service infrastructures and the emergence of new application platforms and cloud deployment models have outstripped the capabilities of traditional approaches to IT management. Our embedded and integrated approach to managing heterogeneous, hybrid cloud environments reduces IT management complexity. vSphere, the industry’s leading virtualization platform, features built-in intelligence with high availability, fault tolerance, dynamic resource scheduling and disaster recovery capabilities that improve manageability, availability and business continuity. The automated performance management capabilities of vCenter Operations Manager Foundation have been embedded in vSphere, resulting in even greater platform performance and efficiency.
Converged, Analytics-based Operations Management
Operations management disciplines are converging in the cloud. Performance, capacity and configuration are becoming inseparable due to the dynamic nature of converged infrastructure. Configurations are fluid, and capacity is shared and sourced from many places, all of which impacts performance. As a result, enterprises need intelligence—in the form of visibility across the system—and analytics to decipher what is important in their ever-increasing volumes of data.
vCenter Operations Management Suite delivers an integrated approach to performance, capacity and configuration management for a comprehensive view of virtual and physical cloud infrastructure health. Through tight integration with vCenter Server, the foundation for virtualized management, VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite delivers a high quality of service and reduces operational expenses with built-in automation and intelligent policy management. The suite also provides comprehensive visibility into health of workloads running on hybrid clouds through a single dashboard.
vCenter Operations Management Suite provides patented analytics that aggregate performance data from vCenter Server and third-party monitoring systems. As a result, the solution learns normal behavior and sets dynamic performance thresholds for more intelligent alerting, proactive intervention and rapid problem resolution. Patented analytics aggregate performance metrics and correlate issues (e.g., faults, lack of capacity, configuration drift) across virtual and physical infrastructures to detect, diagnose and remediate performance problems.
Compliance and Capacity Management
vCenter Operations Management Suite conducts automated provisioning, patching and configuration analysis of infrastructure and applications to provide continuous compliance with operational best practices, security guidelines and regulatory requirements. Integrated performance and configuration management enables visual correlation of in-guest configuration change events and their impact on performance with right-click remediation of any issues. Leveraging easy to use templates, vCenter Operations Management Suite facilitates compliance management with IT, vendor and regulatory requirements across virtual, physical and cloud environments, while allowing you to track and audit your compliance posture.
vCenter Operations Management Suite also helps you right-size your infrastructure resources. Automated capacity analysis identifies and reclaims waste from over-provisioned and idle VMs for more efficient infrastructure utilization. What-if analysis allows you to forecast capacity trends to better meet future business demands.
Improved Collaboration between IT Infrastructure and Operations Teams
vCenter Operations Management Suite provides a holistic view of virtual and cloud infrastructure health, improving collaboration among IT teams with a real-time understanding of how to manage performance, capacity and configuration issues and risks to maintain service health. vCenter Operations Management Suite correlates issues with workload, faults, capacity, etc. in the converged storage, network and server domains across virtual and physical infrastructures into a single dashboard that can be used to look at health, risk and efficiency across your entire IT environment.
vFabric Application Performance Manager simplifies performance monitoring and management of web and custom applications in virtual and cloud environments. The next-generation application operations dashboard automatically models transactions across all application tiers, providing a critical real-time view through a single pane of glass into the true performance of dynamically scaling applications. When performance problems do occur, powerful visualizations and drill-down details, such as correlated metrics on infrastructure resource performance from vFabric Hyperic and byte code instrumentation make it easy to identify root cause and take actions at the code level to fix problems quickly – all within a single management console.
