VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) Review

Collects all the data we need and gives details about the whole infrastructure


What is most valuable?

The analytics engine:

  • Goes through all the data which we are out to collect and gives us a nice dashboard.
  • Gives details about the whole infrastructure.
  • Shows how things are working now.

How has it helped my organization?

We used to do all the calculations manually. Now everything is done within the analytics engine itself. So, it gives us a very clear vision, or data, about what we need in our infrastructure support applications.

What needs improvement?

A feature that would definitely help is something that automatically resizes the virtual infrastructure. That is one thing that we would like to see in vROps. It would understand the workloads' requirements and then resize them based upon orchestration and automation rules.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I've never had an issue with it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I've never had an issue with it.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have never used it.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

No. We need the solution because we have to monitor our environment. So for monitoring the virtual infrastructure, it is the key component.

How was the initial setup?

It is a straightforward architecture, but you can make it complex based upon your architecture. Based upon where and how you want to deploy.

All the architecture is based upon your datacenter layout. It's a pretty straightforward process but you have to consider your layout.

What about the implementation team?

In-house.

What other advice do I have?

The most important criteria is that the solution must understand the overall software, defined as it is in your architecture; not only the hypervisor layer but the VMs run on it, the storage, the computing that will be running, and the network as well.

Research integration with any other portal that you want to monitor along with your hypervisor.

I would highly recommend going forward with this solution.
