FEATURES

Intelligent IT Operations 

Maximize capacity utilization and enable optimum performance and availability of applications and infrastructures across vSphere, Hyper-V, Amazon, and physical hardware. Proactively identify and solve emerging issues with predictive analytics and smart alerts as well as manage capacity and resolve resource contention with intelligent workload placement.

Performance Management

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

Gain insight into application-to-infrastructure dependencies through a centralized operations view. Map your running compute, storage and network resources; assess and analyze dependencies; detect variances from the norm; and quickly identify root causes. View health, risk and efficiency status at the group or component level and gain operational intelligence.

Policy-Based Automation 

Streamline key IT processes with out-of-the-box and customizable policies, guided remediation and automated standards enforcement. Optimize performance, capacity and compliance while retaining full control of IT operations.

Configuration and Compliance Management

Proactively enforce configuration standards, detect configuration drift and automatically remediate violations of IT policies with automated workflows, smart alerts, simplified causal explanations and recommended actions. Use out-of-the-box configuration and compliance policies, or create your own.

vSphere Security Hardening

Continuously ensure vSphere hardening compliance for all aspects of your virtual and physical infrastructures. Use detailed templates that reveal the posture of your environment against hundreds of hardening conditions to drill into noncompliant areas and remediate. Schedule compliance checking jobs to run automatically.

Compliance Toolkits

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.

Unified IT Management 

Gain comprehensive visibility in one place and across applications, storage, and network devices with an open and extensible platform supported by third-party management packs for solutions from Microsoft, SAP, and other hardware and software providers.

Comprehensive Visibility

Gain visibility into applications, storage, and networks across physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures—from vSphere and Hyper-V to Amazon Web Services—through a single interface, which connects performance data to change events.

Open and Extensible Platform

Manage large, complex heterogeneous and hybrid environments with an open and extensible architecture with scalability and resilience to support highly complex environments. Deploy domain-specific Management Packs from VMware and third-party hardware and application vendors.

Business Continuity

Improve business continuity and disaster recovery planning through automated application discovery and mapping, and by identifying the impact of infrastructure changes on your applications. Uncover overlooked dependencies between virtual machines and critical connections that may be missing from your disaster recovery plan.
