VMware vCenter Application Discovery Manager 7.0.0 Release Notes

vCenter Application Discovery Manager 7.0.0 | 13 SEPTEMBER 2012 | Build 0032

Last Document Update: 13 SEPTEMBER 2012

VMware vCenterTM Application Discovery Manager (ADM), powered by nLayersR provides infrastructure for real-time dependency driven change, configuration, incident, and problem management. By using ADM enterprises can manage change impact, control configuration drift, and correlate how infrastructure incidents affect applications.

ADM provides an automated dependency catalog that allows enterprises to eliminate their reliance on speculation, and avoid change-induced service outages, degradations, and failures. Enterprises can detect, log, and report the software and hardware configuration changes, and compare configurations server to server. With its native EMC IONIX integration, you can correlate infrastructure incidents to application impact based on real-time models of application topologies and dependency relationships.
