VMware offers a 67% gain in IT productivity and a 30% reduction in capital expenditure


Considering a management solution for your VMware vSphere environment and SolarWinds Virtualization Management (VMAN) is on your short list? Make sure you understand the facts about vSphere with Operations Management. The VMware management platform has a proven approach with self-learning behavioral analytics to proactively detect and remediate issues unique to your environment – with no guesswork.


Some customers consider virtualization management solutions from SolarWinds, like SolarWinds Virtualization Management (VMAN), as “good enough” but they get short-changed in accuracy and automation for both trouble-shooting, remediation and optimization. By contrast, VMware offers a 67% gain in IT productivity and a 30% reduction in capital expenditure.

Analytics & Automated Operations: Why the VMware Approach is Superior


SolarWinds Virtualization Manager is not an enterprise grade Operations Management solution. The lack of self-learning analytics makes it unable to deal with large scale, complex, and dynamic environments like private clouds, hybrid clouds and the forthcoming software defined data center. Forward looking customers... might then be better served by starting out with vSphere with Operations Management (vSOM) which is a cost effective bundle of the VMware vSphere virtualization platform and vRealize Operations.
