December 9, 2014 0 By Allan Kjaer

VMware has released the new version of vCenter Operations Manager, now called vRealize Operations Manager, this is an exciting "new" product, that has a lot of changes from the old version, that I have been looking forwart to for some time.

  • Scale-Out Deployment Architecture
    • This release provides distributed deployment with elastic scale and higher scalability.
  • Unified User Interface
    • This release introduces a single user interface to manage vSphere as well as non vSphere domains. You can create powerful, flexible custom dashboards enabling you to bring any information you want into the management console.
  • Licensing Management in 6.0 
    • vRealize Operations Manager 6.0 has an independent license-management GUI that provides enhanced administration of license keys specific to vRealize Operations. Customers can now deploy mixed editions in a single vRealize Operations 6.0 instance.
  • Smart Alerts
    • Smart alerts combine multiple symptoms to generate a single alert that focuses on the underlying issue with clear recommendations and option to take action for remediation.
  • Enhanced Reporting
    • Enhanced reporting provides several out-of-the-box reports with the ability to generate fully customizable reports.
  • Capacity Planning and Project Management Capabilities
    • New capacity planning and project management capabilities extend beyond vSphere and across physical and application level metrics. Flexible capacity models can be adjusted to meet different business needs.
  • Custom Policies
    • Custom policies can applied for specific workload types, applications or clusters enabling more advanced monitoring of performance, capacity and configuration standards.
  • Automated Remediation of Problems
    • Integrated action and remediation capabilities with the ability to apply actions according to the recommendation for the alerts.

    • Improved user access control, including granular role-based access control.
