vROps Webinar 2017 - Announcing Part 2 : "Full Stack" monitoring with vRealize Operations Manager

As promised, vROps Webinar Series 2017 is back with the second episode of the year. Last time around we looked closely into the features of vROps 6.5 and as stated during that webinar, we will now show you how you can unlock the full capabilities of vROps using the extensibility of the platform.

If you have been following the Webinar Series, by now you have a complete visibility into the capabilities of vROps, when it comes to monitoring the vSphere infrastructure. While this infrastructure is important for the IaaS provider, what business cares about is Applications. The good news is that vROps provides you an extensible platform which can be leveraged to extend the product capability into any area where metrics exist. This could be at the layers of your Software Defined Datacenter such as Compute, Network & Storage, or in the Application Stack and it's tiers such as App, Web and DB.

While VMware provides a number of plugins which allow you to extend the platform capabilities into applications, they also leverage strategic partners such as Blue Medora to provide you with management packs which can go deep into applications to complete the "FULL STACK VISIBILITY" which is required in any IT shop.

To discuss this topic in detail and to bring life to the concept of  FULL STACK VISIBILITY, we will be joined by Craig Lee and Brock Peterson from Blue Medora joining me and Simon.

Here are the use cases we will cover during the session:

Use Case 1 - Full-Stack vSphere Monitoring

We will demonstrate covering the “Full-Stack” with going from the Oracle Database query level, through the application stack, down to the Netapp SAN’s disk that the VM is running on.

Use Case 2 - Amazon RDS Workloads

You can monitor your, no matter where it lives. vROps can be extended to monitor other platforms hosting your production applications. In this section, we’ll demonstrate monitoring Amazon RDS hosted production databases within vROps . 

Use Case 3 - Extensions to vROps

vROps can be extended in a variety of ways, including Management Packs, Loginsight, EndPoint Operations agents, and vRealize Business Suite. We’ll walk through what the various extensions means in terms of functionality. Finally, we’ll show how all of these are available via the VMware Solutions exchange and where you can start to customize your environment.

Special thanks to Blue Medora for participating in the Webinar Series and contributing to the vCommunity.

vROps Webinar Series 2017 - Part 1 - What's New with vROps 6.5

Time to share the recording of the first episode of the vROps Webinar Series 2017. This time around, Simon and myself spoke about the latest release of vRealize Operations Manager. We spoke about almost all the new features which were introduced with this version and went into some of them in detail. Like always we rounded up the session with Live Demo of the new features for our audiences.

We introduced a feedback form which can be used to provide your feedback in general and also request topics on which you would want us to focus this year.

Would appreciate if you could spend 30 seconds to fill up this quick and simple survey.

Note : It is recommended that you watch the video in HD quality for a great experience.
