Automatically discover application services, visualize relationships and map dependencies of applications on virtualized compute, storage and network resources. A component of the vCenter Operations Management Suite, vCenter Infrastructure Navigator enables application-aware management of infrastructure and operations to better understand the impact of change, provide more complete disaster recovery protection and minimize downtime.
Automatically Discover Application Services
Discover applications services and map their dependences to get the visibility into the application services running over the virtual machine and supporting infrastructure. Integrates with vCenter Server and provides continuous application discovery and dependency mapping for the virtual and adjoining physical environments.
- vSphere integration propagates automated fast application discovery and synchronized updates
- Intergrated knowledge base recognizes and automatically discovers discovered the out-of-the-box application services
- Automated and manual application grouping enables users to easily create groups based on infrastructure, or business classificationAutomatically updates any changes in the application environment
- Automatically updates any changes in the application environment
- Maps dependencies to external IP addresses, such as adjoining physical servers one hop away
- Discovers the user defined applications automatically
- Provides a common vocabulary for the infrastructure and the application teams
Proactive Virtualization Management
Use vCenter Infrastructure Navigator to leverage the application dependency context to proactively manage the virtual infrastructure. With intelligent operations groups and vCenter Operations Manager integration users are enabled to quickly identify in-context performance and capacity issues, as well as optimization opportunities, as they relate to grouped objects either by business, or operational relevance.
- Organize IT operations by line of business, production workload or configuration type
- Create group policies to prioritize alerts, thresholds and group membership
- Automatically discover application components and dependencies and monitor them
- View health, risk and efficiency at the group and component level
- Impact Management. Manage changes (planned or unplanned) by gauging the impact on applications.
Better Define Protections Groups and Recovery Plans
- vCenter Infrastructure Navigator provides a complete application context as basis for defining vApps.
- Complete Group Accuracy. Easy grouping by instantly and accurately identifying an application’s associated virtual machines
