USE CASES

Continuous Performance Optimization

Assure performance at minimal cost, driven by operational and business intent with predictive analytics driving actions to automatically balance workloads and proactively avoid contention.

Automated Workload Balancing

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.

Predictive DRS

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.

Predictive Analytics

Enable proactive identification of performance problems through predictive analytics and get simple, actionable explanations of underlying problems and recommended actions that can be automated.

Efficient Capacity Management and Planning

Reduce cost and risk with real-time, predictive capacity analytics correlated with cost analytics, delivering optimal densification and proactive planning and procurement.

Reclaim and Right-size

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.

Correlate Business and Operational Insights

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.

Capacity Planning

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 across the private cloud, 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 VMware Cloud on AWS or AWS.

Intelligent Remediation

Predict, prevent and troubleshoot faster with actionable insights correlating metrics and logs and centralize IT operations with native SDDC integrations, federated views and a highly scalable and extensible platform.

Unified Operations

Get a unified IT operations view into applications and infrastructure health. Visualize 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.

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 brings structured data (such as metrics and key performance indicators) and unstructured data (such as log files) together for faster root-cause analysis.

Native SDDC Integrations

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 support 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.

Global Operations View within vCenter

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.

Integration with Wavefront by VMware

Out-of-the-box integration with Wavefront by VMware empowers IT and application owners to triage and resolve issues faster. vRealize Operations easily on-boards Wavefront app monitoring by automatically discovering virtual machines and apps and provisioning the required OS and app data collectors. This capability enables IT to gain control and provide app monitoring capabilities to their dev ops teams for the next gen apps such as Cassandra, Kafka and PCF as well as traditional apps such as Exchange, Active Directory and Weblogic.

Configuration and Compliance

Reduce risk by ensuring security configuration for vSphere, with out-of-the box cluster, host and VM compliance dashboards and vSphere regulatory compliance templates such as PCI and HIPAA.

Open and Extensible Platform

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.
