#vROps Webinar 2016 : Part 5 : Design and Deployment considerations

vROps webinar logoAs promised, I am posting the recording for the 5th Session of vROps Webinar Series 2016. Both Sunny and I successfully delivered the session on Design and Deployment considerations.

Session Details:- In this instalment of the series, we discussed the steps and thought processes that should be used before and during the design and deployment of vRealize Operations Manager. During the session among other things we will cover the planning, core components, correct sizing, HA, clustering, DR and future growth.

Once again I would like to thank my friend and partner in this project Sunny as without him this would not be possible.

So without further ado, here is the recording for this session:

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

#vROps Webinar 2016 – Announcing Part 5 : Design & Deployment Considerations

vROps webinar logoTime to announce the next part of the year long webinar series on vRealize Operations Manager. This time around, Sunny and I thought about discussing Architecture of vROps. To some, it might sound strange as for smaller deployments you might not have to worry about Sizing and Architecture much since it is pretty simple to install and configure a small or a medium node for a small shop. However as your monitoring needs grow and you start adding solutions for monitoring data sources beyond vSphere, you would need to think about scaling up or scaling out. As your monitoring environment weaves into your incident ticketing system, you would start to see the need to HA of vROps and as you have a DR strategy for your workloads, you will start thinking about DR for your operations tools as well.

We have seen these questions and situations come up in many of our engagements and hence we thought that we should share some of our experience around this area. Below are the Webex Details:

Is there any #vROps reference architecture?

vRealize-Operations-Manager-Logo_thumb.jpgGiven the flexibility in which you can choose to use and deploy vROps a question that frequently comes out is “is there a best practice?”

While that phrase is getting pretty tired it is still valid if you are just starting a design for a new vROps build or trying to make the best of a bad implementation. Rather than me trying to tell you how you should use vROps in your place of work I would direct you to a very useful PDF VMware have produced vRealize Operations Manager Reference Architecture.

Needless to say this is a tremendously useful resource and should be a port of call for anyone validating their vROps design choices.
