#vROps Webinar Series 2017 – Part 2- Full Stack monitoring with vRealize Operations Manager

| 15/05/2017 | Tags: , , , ,

Time to share the recording of the second episode of the vROps Webinar Series 2017. This time Sunny and I were joined by Craig Lee and Brock Peterson from Blue Medora to talk about “Full Stack Visibility” which vROps can provide by using various extensibility solutions.

We discussed the following use cases and demonstrated them in live environments:

Use Case 1 – Full-Stack vSphere Monitoring. From application to Infrastructure.
Use Case 2 – Amazon RDS Workloads. Monitoring public cloud workloads with vROps.
Use Case 3 – vROps Extensibility. Metrics, Logs and Costing come together along with other 3rd party extensibility options.

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

Announcing Part 2 – #vROps Webinar series 2017 – “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, joining Sunny and me will be Craig Lee and Brock Peterson from Blue Medora.
