New management pack for NSX in vR Ops 6 !

Today we announced a new management pack for NSX-vSphere and NSX Multi-hypervisor. This is good stuff as we are now able to manage end to end and include networking data in vRealize Operations Manager. It is a free download, from the announcement:

The vR Ops Management Pack for NSX-vSphere 2.0 and vR Ops Management pack for NSX-MH 1.0 extends the operational management capabilities of vRealize Operations 6.0 into the areas of virtual and physical data center networking. It provides the following operations capabilities for virtual infrastructure administrators and network operations administrators, in highly virtualized network environments:

  • Embedded dependency rules of both logical and physical networking relationships for problem alerting and root-cause problem solving. This includes detection and alerting of NSX configuration, connectivity, and health problems. All alerts are consolidated into a vRealize Operations Manager alert interface.
  • Search and drill down functions for obtaining the operations health of deployed NSX objects.
  • Extension of the core vRealize Operations Manager health and risk analytics engine for the inclusion of NSX object key performance and health indicators.
  • Visibility of all NSX components including NSX manager, NSX controllers. Several different pre-defined vRealize Operations widgets are leveraged for representing NSX services.

Details of the release and the management pack can be downloaded from below links on VMware Solution Exchange:

 

VMware product walkthrough website

It has been brought to my attention again that we have a great external website where you can learn about products like NSX and vSAN through walkthrough presentations with screenshots.

It is a great tool because it really gives a feel of the product. You can head over there at http://featurewalkthrough.vmware.com. Enjoy !
