With VMware® vSphere® software, you have already seen the benefits of the world’s leading virtualization platform, however, by itself it doesn’t have all of the tools you need to realize the most value from your investments. VMware vSphere with Operations Management adds critical capacity management and performance monitoring capabilities. It is designed for business of all sizes to run applications at high service levels and maximize hardware savings through higher capacity utilization and consolidation ratios.
Let’s take a deeper look to the benefits and advantages vSphere with Operations Management brings to your virtualized architecture, not only in performance, but also in security and cost efficiency.
1. Capacity Management to optimize resource utilization.
Overprovisioning is a pervasive problem in today’s data centers. It’s common to see VMs with more capacity than what they need to support peak demand for the applications they are running. That built-in waste drives up IT costs. Many organizations have inadequate tools for capacity planning. Without a clear view of capacity utilization trends, capacity problems become even more complicated as the IT environment grows.
vSphere with Operations Management helps you identify capacity shortfalls and over-provisioning so you can right-size VMs, reclaim idle resources, and increase consolidation ratios. vSphere with Operations Management helps you gain historical and real- time visibility into the IT environment, coupled with predictive analytics. These capabilities allow your organization to better provision resources to meet future demands.
2. Performance Monitoring for quick identification of issues and faster problem resolution.
In today’s complex data centers, it can be difficult to determine the sudden cause of performance problems. The performance degradation might be caused by a policy change by a virtualization administrator, a network performance issue, a memory bottleneck due to over-consolidation, or countless other issues.
vSphere with Operations Management enables operational insight and root-cause identification of bottlenecks and performance issues. You gain a world view of your IT infrastructure on one dashboard—by data center, cluster, host, and VM. This unified management view simplifies troubleshooting, leading to significant time savings for IT and faster resolution of performance issues.
3. Risk Analysis to help proactively avoid future performance issues.
In a complex IT environment, it’s hard to manage problems and risks before they’ve occurred. To proactively avoid potential problems, you need you need the ability to see and analyze historical performance and establish dynamic thresholds to help you determine when compute resources have fallen out of compliance with established policies.
The risk analysis capabilities in vSphere with Operations Management take performance monitoring to a new level by using historical performance trends and predictive analytics to identify emerging problems and potential future performance issues.
The Bottom Line is that vSphere with Operations Management simplifies IT and Increase ROI from Virtualization.
In order to grow your virtual environment, achieve peak performance, and realize the most value from your investments, you need tools that alert you to current and future risks and enable you to identify areas for additional capacity optimization. vSphere with Operations Management maximizes the benefits of your virtualized data center with consistent management to deliver more value to your business from day one.
