#vROps Webinar Series 2017 – Part 1 – What’s New with vROps 6.5

| 04/04/2017 | Tags: , , , , ,

Time to share the recording of the first episode of the vROps Webinar Series 2017. This time around, Sunny and I 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.

#vROps 6.5 – Two new enhancements/features I really liked

So vROps 6.5 has been out for around a month now and I finally have a little while to write a post on what I personally really like.

There is a lot of great new enhancements and improvements added in 6.5 but for the sake of brevity I shall highlight two that I really liked.

Flexibility to increase RAM in between node sizes

So if you are familiar with vROps you will know that when you deploy it you have “T-Shirt” sizes to choose from, Small, Medium, Large and now Extra Large (6.5). However an additional extra in 6.5 is support to increase the memory allocation of your vROps nodes, you will not require additional CPU for the node until you hit the next node size bracket. If in doubt check the sizing guide spreadsheet VMware has provided so you can be sure on what you can and cannot do.

This flexibility plus the introduction of a new Extra Large Node size will give you more choice and flexibility with your existing or future vROps deployments.

Direct integration with Log Insight

There was already some integration with Log Insight via the launch in context menu, but now you can access Log Insight from the home page and also when you are troubleshoot individual objects. From a UX perspective this is fantastic and just saves time and further cements the relationship the two products have. You will still need to configure the Log Insight Management Pack and point it to the vLI instance you wish to integrate your vROps cluster with.
