Cloud Operations

In a heterogeneous and hybrid world, IT departments require an integrated, analytics-based approach to cloud operations management in order to ensure performance and service levels, increase operational efficiency and maintain compliance on or off-site. Our solutions simplify and automate cloud operations from apps to storage, on- or off-premises.

Converging Operations Management

Operations management disciplines are converging. Performance, capacity and configuration are becoming inseparable due to the dynamic nature of converged infrastructure that is extended with public cloud services. Configurations are fluid, and capacity is shared and sourced from many places, all of which impacts performance. As a result, enterprises need intelligence, including visibility across the physical, virtual and cloud system, and analytics to decipher what is important in the ever-increasing volumes of data.

Intelligent Operations Management

VMware vCenter™ Operations Management Suite™ provides predictive analytics and Smart Alerts on application and infrastructure health, enabling proactive identification and remediation of emerging performance, capacity and configuration issues, helping improve performance and avoid disruption with self-learning management tools. Capacity optimization 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. Moreover, what-if analyses allow you to forecast capacity trends to better meet future business demands.

Policy-Based Automation

vCenter Operations Management Suite includes out-of-the-box and customizable policies associated with Smart Alerts, guided remediation and compliance standards. It delivers recommendations to optimize performance and capacity and enforce configuration standards, helping you become more efficient by automating key IT processes with policy-based control.
