New Release: The Gorilla Guide to…® VMware vRealize True Visibility Suite, Express Edition!

These days, organizations typically deliver their applications over networks. But stating the relationship in that manner is a bit simplistic. From the viewpoint of an operations team—which is responsible for deploying the application, keeping it running continuously, and ensuring good performance—the application and the network are intimately intertwined. Virtualization adds another layer of abstraction 

This type of infrastructure is necessary nowadays, but it does make the process of diagnosing problems extremely difficult. There are so many moving parts, and those parts are scattered all over the world, that honing in the real issue can be maddening, wasting admins’ valuable time. 

That’s why VMware’s vRealize True Visibility Suite exists. In VMware vRealize True Visibility Suite, Christopher Kusek explains the features of the suite, its highly modular components that facilitate the integration of new products, and how the suite delivers insights. For instance, Figure 1 shows a dashboard combining information from many sources. 

The Gorilla Guide takes you on a tour of VMware’s product, showing you the ins and outs, and how to use it to unlock insights that will save you time (and, therefore, money). If visibility into your operations is important to you, it’s a book that you need to have in your library.
