Learning Path: Learn VMware VRealize Operations Manager from Scratch

Video Description

Explore ways to apply vROps to everyday operations management efficiently

In Detail

Virtualization has touched every area of IT infrastructure and operations. Are you looking at working with servers, storage, networking, and security? Or you want to improve the reliability and maintainability of virtualized environments? If yes, then you must be skilled in the key virtualization platform. VMware vRealize Operations Manager is used to deliver intelligent operations management that will help you streamline your processes and customize the environment to suit your needs.

This Learning Path starts by familiarizing you with the VROps UI. It explains both why and how vRealize Operations should be deployed, configured, and used in your environment. Then, you will learn how to create alerts based on environment-specific symptoms, how to manipulate metric data using super metrics, how and when to use groups, how to deliver easy-to-consume data in your environment using the basic dashboard design, how to import custom data and work with relationships, and finally how to trigger events with notifications.

By the end of the Learning Path, you will know how to analyze and optimize your IT environment.
