VMware Management Essentials: VDM, ARC, and Compliance Analytics for VMware-enabled Data Centers
Managing the new VMware-enabled data center requires a real-time understanding of virtual, physical, and Intra-VM relationships and behaviors to automate key processes such as configuration, root cause, storage resource, and compliance management. Modeling behaviors and relationships between physical and virtual domains enables root-cause analytics to pinpoint failures and determine whether virtual or physical servers or networks are to blame. In addition, by passively 'listening' to application traffic across the VMware Virtual Switch (vSwitch), data center applications can benefit from dynamic, agentless visibility into virtual relationships. The end result establishes dependencies of virtual machines to one another in the delivery of business application services and for the construction of data protection and disaster recovery plans for products such as VMware Site Recovery Manager. This also enables backup teams to configure VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) to be application-dependency driven, assuring time-consistent images of data stores based on the latest VM-VM application dependencies. Finally, effective storage resource management requires clear capacity and provisioning visibility across virtual and physical systems. Learn how EMC's management solutions can help automate virtual operations with application dependency mapping, model-based management and storage virtualization.
