In the data center, “integration” is more than just an advertised feature of a solution. Integration between solutions can help solve real problems, and streamline day-to-day operations for the teams responsible for the environment. VMware vSAN users have benefited from the capabilities of integration, with ongoing improvements to its collection of APIs that allow other solutions to see, and interact with a vSAN powered environment.
VMware vRealize Operations, and vRealize Log Insight take advantage of these benefits of native integration with vSAN. Both solutions include ready-to-use, prebuilt dashboards that offer multi-site visibility, and an unprecedented level of infrastructure analytics. Or, users can choose to tailor dashboards to display vSAN data with other infrastructure metrics for quick correlation. Having these integrated tools available helps drive smarter decision making in the ongoing operations and optimizations of a vSphere environment.
With such powerful tools, sometimes there is a need to get an understanding of how to take advantage of the solutions, and the capabilities of their integration. This was the inspiration behind a new guide on vRealize Operations and Log Insight in vSAN Environments found on StorageHub. With this guide, you’ll learn about:
And there is more to come! Stay tuned for more examples to be added in the “Scenarios and Workflows” section of the guide.
