Includes tighter integration of performance, capacity and configuration management
Virtualization and cloud infrastructure company Vmware has released its vCenter Operations Management Suite to help customers deliver IT as a service by simplifying and automating the operations of virtual and cloud environments.
The new operations management Suite is a part of VMware’s comprehensive management portfolio and is tightly integrated with VMware vSphere.
The VMware vCenter Operations Suite includes: tighter integration of performance, capacity and configuration management; a new dashboard and smart alerts for quicker, more effective health analysis; and "Application Awareness" that optimises infrastructure for business-critical applications.
Leveraging the deeper integration of capacity and configuration management data, VMware has enhanced the vCenter Operations Management dashboard to provide more comprehensive views into health, risk and efficiency of cloud infrastructure.
New smart alerts provide proactive notifications of emerging health, performance and capacity issues. Automated root cause analysis can identify the offending metric across all layers of the infrastructure.
VMware Enterprise Management Product Marketing director Rob Smoot said the highly dynamic nature of cloud infrastructure has outpaced traditional operations management disciplines, requiring customers to think differently about how to manage their virtual and cloud environments.
"The VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite provides customers with greater visibility ‘under the hood’ of their infrastructures, and it provides the actionable intelligence customers need to optimize efficiency, enable compliance and proactively manage service levels," said Smoot.
