Continuous Performance Optimization
Efficient Capacity Management and Planning
Thousands of customers across industries worldwide modernize their data centers to optimize for performance, availability, and cost. Discover how these customers streamline and automate IT operations across physical, virtual and cloud environments with VMware’s self-driving IT operations management solutions.
vRealize Operations improves application performance, prevents business disruptions and makes IT more efficient.
Assure performance at minimal cost, driven by operational and business intent, with predictive analytics driving actions to automatically balance workloads and proactively avoid contention.
Automatically and continuously balance workloads across hosts and clusters based on business and operational intent. Optimize workload balancing for cost savings, performance, software license management or densification. Continuously verify workload performance against defined intent, applying predictive analytics to project future requirements, and balance workloads automatically or schedule balancing in a convenient maintenance window.
Integrate vRealize Operations and vRealize Automation for initial placement and on-going placement to meet utilization and business intent.
Create placement zones across hosts regardless of cluster boundaries to optimize placement and balancing of workloads based on software license enforcement, tiers and other tags. Apply business intent to VMware Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) and automate DRS management.
Optimize performance of vSAN clusters through workload balancing that is resync, slack space and storage policy aware.
Avoid contention by combining predictive analytics from vRealize Operations with VMware Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS). Analyze and predict future demand or contention and proactively move workloads to avoid the issues.
Reduce cost and risk with real-time, predictive capacity analytics correlated with cost analytics, delivering optimal densification and proactive planning and procurement.
Reclaim overprovisioned capacity, right-size virtual machines and increase densification while honoring business and operational intent. Real-time predictive capacity analytics provide proactive alerting based on capacity usage and demand. They also deliver actionable recommendations that include reclamation, as well as compute and storage procurement options.
Combine capacity analytics with costing information to easily understand and track how operational efficiency and capacity management drive cost efficiency. Understand total cost of ownership and fine-grained savings opportunities to manage private cloud costs.
Use flexible capacity modeling to develop resourcing strategies and what-if scenarios across multiple clouds. Advanced capacity planning provides the ability to model best fit for new workloads, plan hardware procurement as well as plan migration to VMware Cloud on AWS or Amazon Web Services (AWS). Evaluate the cost of deploying workloads in a private cloud and compare that with the cost of other public cloud environments, such as AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud.
Predict, prevent and troubleshoot faster with actionable insights correlating metrics and logs. Streamline and centralize IT operations with native SDDC integrations, federated views and a highly scalable and extensible platform.
Get a unified IT operations view into applications and infrastructure health. Visualize and correlate key performance indicators and get actionable out-of-the-box, persona-based dashboards and workflows to troubleshoot quickly. Enable proactive remediation of performance problems through predictive analytics and smart alerts. Gain insight into application-to-infrastructure dependencies to simplify change impact analysis and troubleshooting. Customize dashboards, reports and views to create unique workflows across infrastructure, operations and applications teams.
Troubleshoot smarter with 360-degree troubleshooting using metrics and logs side by side and in context. Integration of vRealize Operations and vRealize Log Insight brings structured data (such as metrics and key performance indicators) and unstructured data (such as log files) together for faster root-cause analysis.
Operationalize and scale VMware SDDC components such as vCenter, vSAN and VMware Cloud Foundation, with native integrations and a unified view into SDDC health. Leverage native vSAN management for vSAN-specific monitoring and troubleshooting, as well as capacity management, including capacity and time remaining, deduplication and compression savings and reclamation opportunities. Take advantage of centralized management of multi-site and stretched vSAN clusters with advanced troubleshooting, proactive alerting and visibility from virtual machines to disk.
Get overview of vSphere and vSAN environments within vCenter user interface including KPIs, critical alerts, capacity overview and operational insights and recommendations. Launch in context to vRealize Operations for full stack troubleshooting and capacity management.
Empower IT and application owners to triage and resolve issues faster. vRealize Operations easily and automatically discovers virtual machines and apps, deploys agents with full lifecycle management capabilities and collects the required metrics for observability and troubleshooting for common packed applications. Relationships between applications and infrastructure are mapped by vRealize Operations to provide visualization of the full stack and decrease time-to-identify root cause of performance and availability issues.
Manage large, complex, heterogeneous and hybrid environments with an open and extensible architecture with scalability and resilience. Get federated views across multiple data centers. Deploy domain-specific Management Packs from VMware and third-party hardware and application vendors.
Reduce risk and enforce IT and regulatory standards with integrated compliance and automated drift remediation.
Enable security configuration for vSphere with out-of-the box cluster, host and VM compliance dashboards.
Measure vSphere compliance stature against common templates like DISA, FISMA, ISO, CIS, PCI and HIPAA, or create custom compliance standards.
Automate drift remediation with out-of-the-box workflows and vRealize Orchestrator integration.
