#vROps Webinar 2017 – Announcing Part 4 : Optimizing Workload Performance Using Automation

In this coming episode, Sunny will DIVE DEEP into the interesting topic of introducing automation into operations.

While we all know that, automating day to day operations tasks is becoming the choice of an IT organization, it is hard for them to find a solution which can completely understand their business policies and provide them the efficiency they need from automating simple operational tasks.

Based on our research, we found that, one of the most time consuming activity done by an Virtual Infrastructure Administrator is to juggle resources between the changing business requirements and ensure that every VM which is being hosted in their environment is BEING SERVED WELL.

With VMware vRealize Operations 6.6, a new and innovative solution is introduced to cater to this use case. While there are other products in the market which claim to have done this, what we have learned from our customers that Technology applied by those solutions quickly forgets that Automation should also consider business policies.

With Workload Balance as the next topic of our Webinar Series, we will talk about some real world use cases and demonstrate how we can AUTOMATE OPERATIONS keeping in mind the business goals and requirements. We have selected a date post VMworld Barcelona and hopefully it will suit you.

vROps webinar logoIt’s the time of the month when I would like to invite you to join the next episode of our year long vROps Webinar Series. As we move towards the closure of a fantastic year, we would like to take a zoom out view at the vRealize Operations Manager solution with a What’s New Episode. We did a What’s new with vRealize Operations 6.3 a couple of months back, however looking at some awesome changes made to vRealize Operations 6.4 it absolutely makes sense to go over the new goodies.

With this we will also come to a close of vROps Webinar Series 2016. Simon and myself have discussed about the runway of this series and I am excited to say that we will continue to produce more content going into the next year with vRealize Operations Webinar Series 2017. We believe that operations is ever evolving and hence the content associated to it would always continue to evolve. Hence, it only makes sense that continue to learn and share.
