VMware: Exploring the Awesome New vRealize Operations 6.6 HTML5 User Interface

Now it’s time to come clean and admit it… I’ve never been much of a fan of the traditional vCenter Operations / vRealize Operations user interface (there, I said it for all the world to hear). BUT, let me also say this – I LOVE THE NEW vROPS 6.6 INTERFACE. You see, being a visual learner, I’m a fan of well-created, thought-out user interfaces. For products that are inviting and intuitive, I want to use them and dig deeper into every possible feature. For products that aren’t intuitive, aren’t pretty, and aren’t fun to use, I tire quickly of using them – and I don’t. Yesterday, I installed the new vRealize Operations 6.6 and I was already getting exciting during the installation because, even that, has hints of the new user interface. Once it was installed, I was impressed with the awesome new UI !

Since then, I’ve learned that the new vROps has a HTML5 interface and that it’s based on what is called the Clarity Design System. The Clarity Design System contains “UX guidelines, HTML/CSS framework, and Angular components working together to craft exceptional experiences”. Clarity is opensource and, as far as I can tell, was contributed and is maintained by VMware for the world to create applications with beautiful interfaces (I wish everyone would use it!)

Wait! Why Do I Need vROps 6.6?

If you don’t have vROps at all, let me step back for a moment and explain why it is that you need it (or a tool like it). The modern datacenter is complex and getting more complex every day. We do more and more in software (which is smart) but that also means that you are less able to view the different hardware and software resource silos that make up the modern datacenter. You may have heard of the “IO Blender”, well the modern datacenters are like a “software blender”, in some ways. With resource (except commodity servers) turned into software, you need some really smart software to monitor performance, plan capacity, and prevent downtime, and troubleshoot problems when the unexpected happens.
