Overall Satisfaction with vRealize Operations

We use this program to monitor our VMware infrastructure. With this software we are able to create custom dashboards to ensure that capacity and performance are in line with our service level offering. vRealize allows us to define our own in key performance indicators and send out alerts when they fall below specific thresholds.

Pros

  • Create custom dashboards focusing on customized infrastructure attributes such as cpu, memory, disk.
  • Send automated reports.

Cons

  • More features should be available in the standard version.
  • Licensing is very expensive.
  • Easy access to dashboards and metrics displaying our key performance indicators.
  • Verbose alerting to help find the problem quickly.
We have not tried any other products yet however I hear that turbonomic is a big competitor.
The support is pretty good however some of the KB articles still reference different versions of the product so it can be hard to find answers to common questions.

Yes

Did vRealize Operations (discontinued) live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of vRealize Operations (discontinued) go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy vRealize Operations (discontinued) again?

Yes

VRealize is well suited for an organization that is heavily invested in the VMware ecosystem. There are a ton of plugins and management packs that will allow you to integrate with just about every major area of your infrastructure whether its storage, backup, cloud, or monitoring related. It is less appropriate for a company that does not already have a financial licensing agreement with VMware already established as it can be very expensive if paid for a la carte.
