USE CASES

Application-aware monitoring across SDDC and multiple clouds

Centralize management of SDDC and multi-cloud environments, accelerate time to value and troubleshoot smarter with native integrations, unified visibility from applications to infrastructure health and actionable insights combining metrics and logs.

Unified Performance Management

Get a unified operations view into applications and infrastructure health with an easy-to-use, highly scalable and extensible platform. Visualize key performance indicators and infrastructure components dependencies. Get simple actionable out-of-the-box persona-based dashboards with explanation of underlying problems and recommended corrective actions. Troubleshoot quickly with an easy to navigate and intuitive UI. Enable proactive remediation of performance problems through predictive analytics and smart alerts. Monitor applications and operating systems in one place. Customizable dashboards, reports and views enable role-based access and enable better collaboration across infrastructure, operations and applications teams.

360 Degree Troubleshooting

Troubleshoot smarter with 360-degree troubleshooting using metrics and logs side-by-side and in context. Integration of vRealize Operations and vRealize Log Insight bring structured data (such as metrics and key performance indicators) and unstructured data (such as log files) together, for faster root-cause analysis. Save time and improve return on investment by using a central log management solution to analyze data across the IT environment, including virtual, physical and cloud environments.

Native SDDC Integrations

Operationalize and scale VMware SDDC components such as vCenter, vSAN and VMware Cloud Foundation, with native integrations. Native vSAN management provides vSAN-specific capacity monitoring, including capacity and time remaining, dedup and compression savings and reclamation opportunities. It enables centralized management of multi-site and stretched clusters with advanced troubleshooting, proactive alerting and visibility from virtual machines to disk.

Open and Extensible Platform

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.

Application-Aware Infrastructure Management

Gain insight into application-to-infrastructure dependencies through a centralized operations view. Visualize infrastructure components dependencies for applications, simplify change impact analysis and troubleshooting. Assess and analyze dependencies and uncover overlooked relationships between virtual machines and critical connections that may be missing from your disaster recovery plan.

Automated and proactive workloads management

Simplify and streamline operations with fully automated management of infrastructure and applications performance, while retaining full control. Automatically balance workloads, avoid contention and enable proactive detection and automatic remediation of issues and anomalies before end users are impacted.

Automated Workload Balancing

Automatically and continuously move and balance workloads across hosts and clusters based on business requirements. Control of the level of automation, what automated actions are taken and when these occur. Select business imperative, such as optimizing for cost, performance or utilization and then automate and schedule workload balancing, or even continue to perform manual rebalancing.

Predictive DRS

Avoid contention by combining predictive analytics from vRealize Operations with VMware Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS), to calculate future contention and proactively move workloads to avoid the issue. Predictive analytics learn the normal behavior, analyzing hourly, daily and monthly patterns for every metric associated with an object including the upper and lower bound of “normal”. It uses the analytics to predict future demand and proactively prepares for increased demand by triggering move actions by DRS.

Predictive Analytics and Remediation

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. Remediate alerts and issues before they impact end-users with 1-click as well as fully automated actions.

Cloud Planning, capacity optimization and compliance

Correlate operational and cost insights to accelerate cloud planning decisions, control costs and reduce risk. Optimize cost and resource usage through capacity management, reclamation and right sizing, improve planning and forecasting and enforce IT and configuration standards.

Cloud Planning

Gain cost transparency for the private cloud resources, as well as across multiple public clouds to help optimize placement decisions. Evaluate the expenses of infrastructure in a private cloud environment and compare that with the cost of running the same infrastructure on other public cloud environments like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.

Correlate Business and Operational Insights

Combine capacity analytics with costing information to easily understand and track how operational efficiency and capacity management drives cost efficiency. Understand cost implications of unused and underutilized capacity. Easily and accurately make hardware procurement plans with the insights into what and how many to buy.

Capacity Management

Reclaim overprovisioned capacity and right-size virtual machines with automated resource optimization. Intelligent capacity management and modeling eliminates the need for scripts and spreadsheets. Capacity analytics provide proactive alerting based on capacity usage and demand and deliver optimization capabilities that can help reclaim unused and overprovisioned capacity and right-size VMs to increases resource utilization.

Capacity Forecasting

Use flexible capacity modeling to develop resourcing strategies and what-if scenarios according to business demand as well as service level agreements (SLAs). Advanced capacity modeling provides the ability to create and save multiple “what-if” scenarios and commit these capacity models to the analytics engine to influence future capacity calculations and alerts. Capacity planning and project management capabilities extend beyond vSphere and across physical and application-level metrics, helping to increase consolidation ratios or to plan in accordance with SLAs.

Configuration & Compliance

Reduce risk by ensuring hardening for vSphere and all VMware SDDC components such as VSAN, NSX and vCenter. Get out-of-the box cluster, host and VM compliance dashboards and vSphere regulatory compliance templates such as PCI & HIPAA. Get an overview into SDDC health and compliance with breakdown for each product, Drill into noncompliant areas and remediate.
