VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) Review

Can create a list of operational tasks that need to be addressed

What is most valuable?

Dashboards, then the troubleshooting parts of it. For example, the dashboards that troubleshoot issues with VMs.

How has it helped my organization?

It can create a list of operational tasks that need to be addressed. This way we can give a list to operational people of what they need to do on a day-to-day basis.

What needs improvement?

Needs simpler dashboards; executive level dashboards.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Get all of your access roles enabled so that you can use them in both places.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a large product, but it's very stable after you get all the pieces and enough low balance involved.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Great. We have six main nodes and a bunch of external nodes (remote connectors).

How is customer service and technical support?

Good. They know the product very well.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We were previously using eg operational intelligence. We got a new system because we needed more integration and wanted more insight into what's going on in our environment.

How was the initial setup?

It's complex, but as long as you follow all the steps and don't miss anything, it's fine.

What other advice do I have?

When selecting a better alternative, look at scalability and support.

Test it out. Make sure you get the dashboards you want.
