Reduce cost and improve efficiency with real-time ML-based capacity analytics correlated with cost analytics, improving utilization and consolidation while proactively planning for future.
Real-time predictive capacity analytics provide proactive alerting based on capacity usage and demand as well as allocation with actionable recommendations that include reclamation, procurement and cloud migration planning options.
Reclaim overprovisioned capacity, right-size virtual machines and increase consolidation 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. Define and customize cost drivers and take actions to optimize capacity and costs. Understand total cost of ownership, get fine-grained savings opportunities to manage VMware Cloud Foundation and vSAN costs, and get showback and chargeback reports. Get insights, natively, into costs and billing for VMware Cloud on AWS and extend costing visibility to public clouds through integration with Cloud Health by VMware.
Use flexible capacity modeling to develop resourcing strategies and what-if scenarios across hyperconverged, hybrid and multi cloud environments. Advanced capacity planning provides the ability to model best fit for new workloads, plan hardware procurement, compare costs across multiple data centers and plan migration to VMware Cloud on 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 with unified visibility from applications to infrastructure. Streamline and centralize IT operations with native SDDC integrations with VMware Cloud Foundation, vSphere 7.0, vSAN, VMware Cloud on AWS, and multiple public clouds such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.
