DEMONSTRATION

vCOPs/LogInsight: Visibility between virtual and physical infrastructure with SAN analytics pack integrated with vCOPs and LogInsight

Brocade and VMware are simplifying operations management in highly virtualized SAN environments. Brocade integration into VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite and Log Insight enables IT organizations to get greater visibility and actionable intelligence to proactively ensure service levels, optimum resource usage, and configuration compliance in dynamic virtual and cloud environments. Foundational to the Brocade integration with vCenter is, Brocade Fabric Vision technology, delivering deeper insight into SAN behavior to increase visibility about a variety of issues that impact VM performance and application responsiveness. Brocade Fabric Vision technology provides:

  • Easy to use, policy-based threshold monitoring and alerting that proactively monitors the health and performance of the SAN infrastructure to help ensure application uptime and availability
  • Automatic monitoring and network congestion detection to identify which devices or hosts are impacted by a bottlenecked port

By integrating Brocade Fabric Vision technology into vCOPS and Log Insight, organizations have an aggregated view across the entire virtual infrastructure, including SAN and storage, helping them to quickly isolate problems and focus troubleshooting efforts to the right location for deeper root-cause analysis and remediation of SANs in virtualized environments.
