#vROps Webinar 2016 – Announcing Part 10 : A Deep Dive into vROps API

| 21/10/2016 | Tags: , ,

vROps webinar logoThe month has been extremely busy but we still want to continue with the momentum of webinar series getting to the business end of the year. This time around we will talk about vRealize Operations Manager API. API is your friend if you are trying to automate things which you would normally do on GUI. While GUI is a favourite of most, the geeks prefer the API since that helps them to programatically initiate tasks and go out for a coffee. By the time they are back from the LONG coffee break, the work is done ūüôā

This session would help you understand the API framework of vROps and as always we would jump into the lab to run a couple of scenarios which we would want to access through API and Geek Out!!

So without further a do, save the date in your calendars and join use for the next episode of vRealize Operations Webinar Series 2016.

Time : 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM (SGT)

vRealize-Operations-Manager-Logo_thumb.jpgHere is the recording for the episode 9 vRealize Operations Manager Webinar Series 2016. During this episode we discussed about the new features and functionalities of vRealize Operations Manager 6.3. With this release of the product, we can clearly see that VMware is clearly working on enhancing the user experience and the user interface with some great new features and UI changes.

I would encourage you to watch this session to understand the full potential of the product and how you can use the new features to meet your requirements and ease out operations in your Virtual / Cloud environments.

Special thanks to Sunny Dua and Iwan Rahabok for delivering this as a team.

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

vROps webinar logoIt’s the time of the month when we¬†invite you to join the next episode of¬†our year long vROps Webinar Series. As we move towards winter, we would like to take a zoom out view at the vRealize Operations Manager solution with a What’s New Episode. For the past 8 months, we have give pretty deep into most of the product features and we¬†believe it is time when we review the product in it’s current form and shape. In my opinion, this could not be done better than sharing about the new features & functionalities available in the latest version of vRealize Operations Manager.

While throughout the journey of this series we have discussed various versions of the product, this time around our focus would be on vRealize Operations 6.3.

There are a number of blog articles available which talk about the new features available in the product, however with this episode we will look into the new features in action through a Live Demo as always. We think it is important to see the new features in action to understand the use cases associated with those new features.

So without further a do, save the date in your calendars and join use for the next episode of our vRealize Operations Webinar Series 2016.

vROps webinar logoTime to announce the next part of the year long webinar series on vRealize Operations Manager. This time around, Sunny and I will take you to the world of Content within vROps. I will be honest in saying that this is an ocean in itself and we might not be able to touch upon all the aspects of developing content within vROps. During this effort we plan to start with giving you an overview of the various options available to develop content within vROps.

Among all those options available, we would talk in detail about SuperMetrics and Views and would continue to talk about other option such as Dashboards and Reports in the upcoming sessions. We want to ensure that we go through all the options so that it can help you develop useful content within your environments.

#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:

#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:
