Benefits of Vmware Technology for Your Business

VMware Cloud Services provide a variety of services to manage the integration of cloud services, their management and security. It is possible to use VMware Cloud Services to manage any platform that can support VMware cloud services, which includes hybrid cloud and multicloud environments. There is a broad range options for VMware Cloud Services, offered on a monthly basis.

This article describes applications for five widely used services: VMware Cloud hosted on AWS, Cloud Provider Metering, vRealize Network Insight Cloud, vRealize Log Insight, vRealize Automation and S3-Compatible Storage in VMware Cloud Director.

What is VMware Cloud Services?

VMware Cloud services provide services that allow users to manage, integrate and secure your applications on cloud resources. They work with any cloud service that uses VMware and are able to help you simplify the administration and maintenance of multi-cloud or hybrid environments.

VMware Cloud services enable you to decide the way resources are utilized and the location of workloads using one operational model. This allows you to simplify security, decrease the amount of management work, and boost the ROI of your.

You can utilize VMware Cloud services with either private or public clouds. When you integrate these services, you don’t require re-architecture of applications or change data. This can make it easier to manage the process of modernizing your app and ensure maximum performance.

VMware Cloud Services are offered with a variety of different technologies that are included in an VMware Cloud subscription. This subscription comes with a vast array of services. These services are especially useful for managing and monitoring the cloud environment:

VMware Cloud on AWS
Cloud Provider Metering
vRealize Network Insight Cloud
vRealize Log Insight
VRealize Automation

VMware Cloud on AWS

VMware Cloud is available as standalone service. It also comes as the integration of Amazon Web Services (AWS). This integration was created in collaboration between AWS as well as VMware and is able to connect VMware solutions on AWS infrastructure. This integration can be used to connect on-premises or other cloud-based service to AWS.

When you connect VMware Cloud into AWS you can access an infrastructure that is single-tenant and constructed on Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances. The EC2 instances are designed to handle high volumes of input and output and storage that has low latency Solid-State Drives (SSDs) that are based in Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe).

The infrastructure supports as many as 16 vSphere host clusters running on the infrastructure of bare metal. When you deploy it, you are able to manage scaling by choosing up to 16 hosts for every cluster you run.

Furthermore, VMware Cloud on AWS allows you to utilize the VMware Software-Defined Database Center (SDDC) stack directly on your hosts. It doesn’t require nested virtualization, which makes the configuration and management easier.

In the process of migrating your workloads, you will can use cold (manual) templates for VMs or vMotion (live) choices.

Cloud Provider Metering

Cloud Provider Metering is a service that you can utilize to automate and centralize reports on the use of resources. It is comprised of two parts–VMware vCloud Meter agents as well as VMware Cloud Usage Analytics. Cloud Provider Monitoring allows users to gather data from on-premise instances using the agent and then analyze the data using Usage Insight.

After reports have been created Once they are created, you can access the report, alter or export them from within the VMware Cloud Provider Commerce Portal. In addition, reports are kept in Usage Insight for up to three years, which eliminates the requirement to keep the data in separate locations.

To utilize this service, you’ll have to install an Usage Meter client on each host you wish to keep track of. The agent collects data from all applications on the host and calculates any licenses that are in use as invoiceable. The agent can be scaled up depending on the need to cover the entire area and then upgrade agents as needed.

VMware VRealize Network Intelligence Cloud

VMware vRealize Network Insights a solution that you can utilize to build highly-available, secure multi-cloud and hybrid infrastructures. It lets you leverage the visibility of your network and analyze it to maximize micro-segmentation and optimization of your services and components and reduce risks during transition. The service supports both VMware NSX deployments and Kubernetes deployments.

vRealize Network Insight Cloud has tools that allow you to identify services in your environment and to map dependencies. It also provides you with solutions for solving problems and optimizing performance.

VMware VRealize Log Analytics

VRealize Log Insight, a virtual device that allows you to aggregate, analyse and manage system logs. You can utilize it to keep track of applications’ logs messages, configuration files networks traces, as well as the performance of your system in real time. It lets you more efficiently manage and troubleshoot your environments, and also includes options for security and compliance auditing.

VRealize Log insight is operated by an agent on every device that you wish to track. The agent gathers the performance, state, as well as log data, and transmits it to a central server, where it is analyzed and analysed. It is accessible through the dashboard that you can customize. The options for customization include visualizations alerts, reports as well as saved queries and an option to search.

VMware vRealize Automation

VMware vRealize Automation provides an application that can be used to automate tasks related to managing infrastructure. It has options for self-service provisioning, governance based on roles, and the management of lifecycles of resources. This version of vRealize Automation is also extensible by integrating with the existing VMware or third-party software.

The vRealize Automation platform comes with an agent for service that allows you to combine content your cloud resources and control content through role-based rules. This includes content taken from Cloud Assembly which you can make use of in managing the cloud by using DevOps.

You can define vRealize’s automation through an interface that drags and drops or code with Code Stream. Code Stream lets you build a pipeline in which policies are defined in YAML. These policies can be managed via Git interfaces and APIs.
