Get The Facts 

Fact: To optimize application performance you need a proactive solution

  • Other operations management systems don't meet the demands of today's virtual and cloud infrastructure. You need a solution that helps you go from being reactive to proactive and, finally, innovative. 
  • Ensure any management tool you evaluate has the power and intelligence to proactively aggregate, correlate, and analyze metrics across applications and infrastructure stacks, without adding stress to your environment.
  • Don't fall for vendor claims that sound too good to be true; dig deep to ensure you do not have any blind spots. vRealize Operations and VMware vSphere Distributed Resource Scheduler work seamlessly together to ensure in-cluster and cross-cluster workload placement and rebalancing and capacity management that delivers superior performance and availability.

Fact: Automation, while keeping you in control, is critical

  • While pursuing the current rush toward simplification, other vendors have over-simplified their solutions to the point where their tools exacerbate or even cause service outages. 
  • Root cause analysis is a must-have. Troubleshooting should exist in even the most automated software-defined datacenter environments. Not every issue can be solved by a simple alert or moving a virtual machine. Learn more.

Fact: VMware delivers the leading, proven, best virtualization and cloud management solution
