VMware vSphere with Operations Management 6.7 will have several exciting new features, such as a new plug-in for the vSphere Client, new dashboards, and a brand-new capacity engine, making it a better upgrading option.
vSphere with Operations Management 6.7 has the following functionalities.
vSphere Client Plug-in
A new plug-in for the vSphere Client is included out of the box, and it adds a lot of new features. In the vSphere Client, there are six VMware vRealize Operations Manager dashboards, including an overview, cluster view, and alerts for both vCenter Server and vSAN views.
The plug-in requires vRealize Operations Manager 6.7 to work effectively. The connection is then made automatically through the vRealize Operations Manager defined user.
To utilize this plug-in, you must have vRealize Operations Manager 6.7 installed. The plug-in can help users who don’t have vRealize Operations Manager get it up and running by helping them through the deployment process.
New Quick Start Dashboard
The focus of recent vRealize Operations Manager updates has been on making it easy to get to needed data quickly. The new vSphere Quick Start page does an excellent job of categorizing the available dashboards into four use cases: Optimize Performance, Optimize Capacity, Troubleshoot, and Manage Configuration. Through workload optimization and a set of suggestions, the Optimize Performance use case ensures that workloads receive the resources they require. The Optimize Capacity use case uses a new capacity engine, reclamation opportunities, and a planning tool to optimize present resources.
The Troubleshoot use case is self-explanatory, and it gives you quick access to alerts, integrated log analytics, and informative dashboards for each high-level object type. When an environment meets the requirements of the vSphere Security Configuration Guide, the Manage Configuration use case allows for quick verification and detection.
Workload Optimization Dashboard Updates
The dashboard for Workload Optimization has been expertly updated.
Workload optimization utilizes predictive analytics and applies them to vSphere DRS to transfer workloads between clusters. The ability to fine-tune the settings for workload optimization is new in vRealize Operations Manager 6.7. Users can choose whether workload balance or consolidation is the aim, how much headroom each cluster keeps as a buffer, and how workload placement is prioritized depending on vSphere tags.
Capacity Overview Dashboard Updates
The dashboard for Capacity Overview has been totally redesigned.
In vRealize Operations Manager 6.7, a new capacity engine was created that is more intelligent and faster. This engine can spot trends, spikes, and even workloads that only happen at certain times. The forecast is then given confidence boundaries. Users can see both the most conservative and the most aggressive projections by setting these boundaries. This dashboard also includes suggestions for reclamation.
What is vROps in VMware?
vROps is a VMware utility that allows IT managers to monitor, troubleshoot, and manage their virtual environment’s health and capacity. The VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) Management Suite gives us detailed information on our infrastructure’s performance, capacity, and health.
What is the purpose of vROps?
Performance monitoring and analytics, remediation and troubleshooting, capacity management and planning, workload balancing, log integration, security and compliance are some of the most common uses for vROps.
What is vRA and vROps?
Each VM in a deployment’s CPU, RAM, IOPS, and network metrics are shared via vROps. These may be found under vRA’s Deployments >> Monitor Tab, as well as by selecting the virtual machine(s) to view their performance data.
What is vCenter Operations Manager?
VMware vCenter Operations Manager is an automated operations management solution for highly virtualized and cloud infrastructure that delivers integrated performance, capacity, and configuration management. The most comprehensive management of VMware environments is provided via deep VMware vSphere integration.
What is the difference between vRA and vRO?
The workflow engine within vRealize Orchestrator allows you to enhance the capabilities of vRA to allow for more intricate and unique interactions. vRO may be accessed through other apps, such as vRealize Operations Manager, and has complete REST capabilities for accessing other resources.
