  1. Simplifying Management with VMware vRealize Operations Extensibility

    One of the fundamental truths of enterprise IT is that management tool consolidation improves operational efficiency. It’s easier for an IT pro to use a single solution to collectively monitor all of their applications and infrastructure/cloud resources than to take a piecemeal approach to monitoring by using a variety of different tools. Of course, providing comprehensive management capabili… Read More

  2. Monitoring Your Applications with VMware vRealize Operations

    One of most compelling features of VMware vRealize Operations is its ability to monitor both operating systems and applications such as Microsoft Exchange, MySQL, and Oracle WebLogic Server. VMware vRealize Operations uses application metrics to help identify conditions that might eventually lead to a health or performance issue. The real question, however, is what to do when such conditions are d… Read More

  3. Why It’s Time to Consider VMware vRealize Operations Cloud

    vRealize Operations has long been the go-to solution for managing VMware environments, and more recently, far beyond just the VMware estate, as well. In the last year, VMware has begun offering vRealize Operations as a SaaS solution, running in the cloud. The question is, which version of vRealize Operations should you use to manage your own organization? Comparing the Two Solutions When it come… Read More

  4. Using vRealize Operations to Gain Insight into Your Kubernetes Environment

    Not all that long ago, most organizations focused their management efforts on virtual machines (VMs) and the supporting infrastructure. Today, VMs are only half the story. In addition to managing VMs, organizations also need to be able to manage containers. vRealize Operations is an ideal management solution for organizations that leverage a VMware-based infrastructure. In addition to its abili… Read More

  5. Offload Inactive Data to the Cloud and Drive Down Storage Costs

    Most files have a similar lifecycle: They’re created, revised several times, and then seldom used again. Unfortunately, files can rarely just be deleted. They may need to be kept for legal reasons, or an application may require them to exist in order to function. So even though they’re rarely used, old files must be kept and organized. Ideally, files should be moved to inexpensive storage o… Read More

  6. Balancing Load, Capacity, and Throughput Across Your File Storage Environment

    IT departments often have multiple file storage systems, but storage isn’t distributed equally across them. If one filer is full while others sit nearly empty, it’s not an issue of negligence on the part of IT administrators: Capacity-balancing a fleet of filers has traditionally been difficult, and the methods for doing so have been complex and cumbersome. DataCore vFilO software-defined stor… Read More

  7. Streamlining Placement of Scattered Data on File and Object Storage

    Many organizations have data stored in a wide range of locations on a distributed infrastructure. There can be good reasons for this, but it can also cause chaos. Everyone wants high-throughput, low-latency access to the files they need. They want those files to be easy to find, and they want all of their grouped files in the same place, just as they’ve always been. Unfortunately, these desires… Read More

  8. New Gorilla Guide To…® vRealize Operations 8.1 and Cloud

    “Self-driving IT operations.” It sounds like a pipe dream, doesn’t it? After all, with the complexity of today’s distributed, cloud-focused environment, data and applications can (and do!) live anywhere—on-premises, a hybrid cloud, a public cloud, and multiple clouds. How can all that scattered infrastructure be handled with minimal IT oversight? With really advanced software that use… Read More

  9. Software Training Labs in the Modern Enterprise

    Not all that long ago, software training in the enterprise was largely based around the use of informational videos. While video-based training does have its place, it isn’t ideal. Videos sometimes contain knowledge gaps, and there isn’t a way for a student to ask the instructor questions in real time. Perhaps more importantly, the lack of interactivity makes it easy for a student to simply tu… Read More
