VMware: Smart Monitoring for Nimble SmartStack with vRealize Operations
Nimble SmartStack is the result of a joint effort between Nimble and Cisco to create a series of infrastructure and application solutions which are optimized and validated on Cisco UCS compute, Nimble Adaptive Flash storage, and Cisco Nexus switches. This provides customers with an architectural reference that is pretested and pre-validated to meet the needs of numerous workload types.
One gap in the SmartStack reference architecture is operational monitoring. Supporting production workloads on Nimble SmartStack really requires a single tool to monitor the entire stack, from the hypervisor (SmartStack has reference architecture for Hyper-V and vSphere) down through the compute, network, and storage layer. This allows for streamlined troubleshooting and root cause analysis, which leads to lower MTTI and MTTR.
Enter VMware vRealize Operations Manager and the Blue Medora Management Packs for Cisco UCS, Cisco Nexus, and Nimble Storage. vRealize Operations Manager delivers intelligent operations management with heterogeneous application-to-storage visibility across virtual, cloud, and hybrid infrastructures. With vRealize Operations Manager and Blue Medora Management Packs, users can achieve full operational visibility into their SmartStack infrastructure with:
