Get a complete view of health and performance across SDDC including vSphere, Virtual SAN, and NSX. Enable proactive remediation of performance problems through predictive analytics and smart alerts, which correlate multiple symptoms into meaningful warnings. Access the data required to make informed, intelligent operational and capacity management decisions through intuitive, customizable dashboards, views, and reports.
Capacity Management and Optimization
Balance workloads across clusters to resolve resource contentions and optimize utilizations with intelligent workload placement. Reclaim over-provisioned capacity and right-size virtual machines with automated resource optimization. Use flexible capacity modeling to develop resourcing strategies according to business demand as well as service level agreements (SLAs).
Application-Aware Infrastructure Management
Proactively manage virtual infrastructure with a centralized operations view that gives you insight into application-to-infrastructure dependencies. Map your running compute, storage and network resources, assess and analyze dependencies, detect variances from the norm, and quickly identify root causes. Easily view health, risk, and efficiency status at the group or component level and gain operational intelligence.

Configuration and Compliance Management
Take advantage of out-of-the-box configuration and compliance policies or customize your own. Either way, vRealize Operations streamlines enforcement— with automated workflows, Smart Alerts, simplified causal explanations and recommended actions. Policy-based automation lets you proactively enforce configuration standards, detect configuration drift early and automatically remediate violations of IT policies.
vSphere Security Hardening
Continuously ensure vSphere hardening compliance for all aspects of virtual and physical infrastructure. Detailed templates show you the posture of your environment against hundreds of hardening conditions, so you can quickly drill into non-compliant areas and remediate. Schedule compliance checking jobs to run automatically at any frequency you desire.
Enforce continuous compliance with a broad range of standards, using ready-made compliance toolkits covering security best practices, vendor hardening guidelines, and regulatory mandates such as PCI, HIPAA, FISMA and SOX.
