Deliver intelligent operations management from applications to infrastructure across physical, virtual and cloud environments with VMware vRealize Operations.
Thousands of customers across industries worldwide modernize their data centers to optimize for performance, availability, and cost. Discover how these customers streamline IT operations from applications to infrastructure across physical, virtual and cloud environments with vRealize Operations.
vRealize Operations improves application performance, prevents business disruptions and makes IT more efficient.
Improve performance, avoid disruption and proactively manage the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) with integrated performance and health monitoring from storage to applications with predictive analytics, smart alerts and guided remediation.
Get a complete view of health and performance across SDDC including vSphere and vSAN. Enable proactive remediation of performance problems through predictive analytics and smart alerts, which correlate multiple symptoms into meaningful warnings and alerts. Get simple actionable explanations of underlying problems and recommended corrective actions. Access the data required to make informed, intelligent operational and capacity management decisions through intuitive, customizable dashboards, views and reports.
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.
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.
Optimize resource usage through reclamation and right sizing, cross-cluster workload placement and improved planning and forecasting. Enforce IT and configuration standards for an optimal infrastructure.
Balance workloads across clusters and optimize utilization across clusters with tight Integration with Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS). Rebalance action resolves contention and the workload utilization dashboard provides easy visualization.
Reclaim overprovisioned capacity and right-size virtual machines with automated resource optimization. Use flexible capacity modeling to develop resourcing strategies and what-if scenarios according to business demand as well as service level agreements (SLAs).
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.
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.
Get unified management across heterogeneous data centers and multiple public clouds. Simplify operations with comprehensive visibility in one place across applications, physical infrastructure components and public clouds, supported by an extensible platform utilizing third-party management packs.
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.
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.
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.
