Today is the D day for folks at Palo Alto. The VMware vCenter Operations is making its debut and as it will be publicly announced in a couple of hours or so, this product is here to solve a problem. Errr what problem exactly you’re talking about dude?
Cloud Computing is an empty can without service levels, resource usage and configuration compliance and on top of that automation. And that’s the problem solved today with this announcement of VMware vCenter Operations.
VMware vCenter Operations includes technology from VMware’s vCenter Capacity IQ and vCenter Configuration Manager products, as well as technology from VMware’s acquisition last August of Integrien, a California based IT analytics firm, all three technologies aiming at facilitating operations of either private, hybrid or public Clouds.
VMware comes up with three bundles: Standard, Advanced and Enterprise. As shown on the picture below, all three VMware technologies are present in all three bundles. Though limited in the Standard and Advanced bundles.
Last note, VMware vCenter Operations is GA March 14th.
