VMware has announced general availability of the VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite. Part of VMware’s management portfolio, the VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite is designed to help customers deliver IT as a service by simplifying and automating the operations of virtual and cloud environments.

"The highly dynamic nature of cloud infrastructure has outpaced traditional operations management disciplines, requiring customers to think differently about how to manage their virtual and cloud environments," said Rob Smoot, Director, Product Marketing, Enterprise Management, VMware.

"The VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite provides customers with greater visibility ‘under the hood’ of their infrastructures, and it provides the actionable intelligence customers need to optimize efficiency, enable compliance and proactively manage service levels."

Unveiled in October 2011, VMware's new management portfolio redefines IT management by embedding and integrating management into the platform, converging disciplines to streamline processes and applying analytics to help customers achieve the agility and economics of cloud computing.

Updates to the VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite include deeper integration of capacity and configuration management capabilities and new "application awareness" to enable customers to optimize infrastructure operations based on application needs.

The VMware vCenter Operations Suite is tightly integrated with VMware vSphere, and includes the following new features:

* Tighter integration of performance, capacity and configuration management: VMware continues to deliver on its strategy of converging management disciplines with deeper integration of VMware vCenter Capacity IQ and VMware vCenter Configuration Manager into the vCenter Operations Management Suite. This helps customers to identify emerging problems, “right size” infrastructure resources, and identify and remediate performance issues caused by configuration changes.

* New dashboard and smart alerts for quicker, more effective health analysis: Leveraging the deeper integration of capacity and configuration management data, VMware has enhanced the vCenter Operations Management dashboard to provide more comprehensive views into health, risk and efficiency of cloud infrastructure. New smart alerts provide proactive notifications of emerging health, performance and capacity issues. Automated root cause analysis can identify the offending metric across all layers of the infrastructure.

* "Application Awareness" optimizes infrastructure for business-critical applications: The VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite includes a new application awareness capability that can automatically discover and map the relationships and dependencies between applications and the infrastructure components that support them. This can help customers optimize infrastructure operations such as security management and disaster recovery based on individual application needs.
