VMware cloud management solutions get a major upgrade in Q4. All management products are now part of a single product family – vRealize. This change includes major enhancements to existing products, as well as new products that help manage the software defined data center and hybrid cloud.

vRealize Suite 6 – unified management

SDDC will be hybrid. Customers don’t want the cost of installing, training and maintaining two management stacks, one for datacenter and one for cloud. vRealize Suite is VMware’s cloud management platform purpose-built for hybrid cloud. Improved integration of operations and automation now display service health badges in the service portal, and allow for streamlined reclamation of underutilized resources. New cloud business management functions give both IT admins and those using the service request portal even more transparency of cost and service quality.

vRealize Operations - formerly vCenter Operations Management Suite

Those managing IT operations get a major boost in productivity with new capabilities in our flagship operations management product. A new architecture that delivers 8x greater scalability now unifies management with a single UI for vSphere and other domains. Analytics, smart alerts and problem detection capabilities now include a recommend solution and link to automated remediation that fixes issues before they become problems that impact users.

vRealize Code Stream 1.0 – new product enables continuous delivery while maintaining IT control

Agile development needs agile operations. IT operations can now help automate and accelerate the software development process and release into production. The latest VMware management solution works with DevOps tools as well as vRealize Automation infrastructure and application services, to enable frequent, reliable software releases while reducing operational risks.
