It’s the time of the month when we invite you to join the next episode of our year long vROps Webinar Series. As we move towards winter, we would like to take a zoom out view at the vRealize Operations Manager solution with a What’s New Episode. For the past 8 months, we have give pretty deep into most of the product features and we believe it is time when we review the product in it’s current form and shape.
With today, being the last day of the month, we wanted to make sure that we share this out with you folks out there to keep up with the practice. Iwan Rahabok, did a great job on this one, talking about the the concept of SDDC operations and I would recommend this session to anyone who wants a jump-start into transforming their operations for SDDC. Quickly want to thank Iwan here for spending his valuable time with us and giving back to the community through this Webinar Series, Blogs, Books etc.
So one of the most common questions I get from customers regarding vROps is alert filtering and up until very recently the only way to filter was either by email alerting or via the REST plugin.

This time around Iwan Rahabok will lead the next session of the vROps Webinar Series while Sunny and myself will support him to deliver some awesome content which Iwan has developed over the past few months. Yes, this time around we will move our focus from vROps as a Product and related features to the concept of running your SDDC operations with vRealize Operations Dashboards. Just to clarify, this is not a session where we will teach you to create dashboards, but this is a session where we would share how a set of Customised Dashboards can help any organisation’s IT to get an insight into Storage, Network & Compute within your SDDC.

Alerts as we all know would always remain the heart and soul for the operations teams to run the data centers, whether old school or the modern software defined. In all cases you need alerts and more importantly you need meaningful and actionable alerts.
Time to announce the next part of the year long webinar series on vRealize Operations Manager. With the last part of the series, we started focusing on content withing vROps.

Time to announce the next part of the year long webinar series on vRealize Operations Manager. This time around, Sunny and I will take you to the world of Content within vROps.

During this effort we plan to start with giving you an overview of the various options available to develop content within vROps.
