#vROps Webinar 2017 – Announcing Part 3 : What’s New with #vROps 6.6

Welcome to the next episode of vRealize Operations Manager Webinar Series. This time around we will talk about the latest release of vROps released in the month of June.

With this release, VMware has made drastic changes to the product and the initial reviews of the product have been great. Since I was a part of the team delivering this new release, I thought it would be a good topic to discuss in the next episode of the Webinar Series.

As always, we will go through the slides to give you a quick introduction and then do a live demo of the features in our environment. Since this is a big release, we will use the subsequent episodes of this series do give you a deep dive into some of the features which require a special mention and more time due to the depth and breadth of the topic.

Here are the details:

#vROps Webinar 2016 – Part 12 : What’s New with vROps 6.4

Time to publish the recording for the 12th episode of the vROps Webinar Series. This time we did a what’s new with vRealize Operations 6.4 and the changes made to vRealize Operations 6.4as you will see there has been a lot packed into this recent release!

It has been an awesome 12 months working with Sunny on this project and I am very glad to say we will be back next year (we will skip January and will return in February).

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

#vROps Webinar 2016 – Announcing Part 12 : What’s New with vROps 6.4

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.

#vROps Webinar 2016 – Announcing Part 9 : What’s New with vRealize Operations Manager 6.3

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.
