Blue Medora is excited to announce that its vRealize Operations (vROps) Management Pack for Nutanix is now Nutanix Ready. The management pack helps you gain visibility into the health and performance of your Nutanix clusters and the workloads running on them.

As part of Blue Medora’s True Visibility Suite, the vROps Management Pack for Nutanix brings visibility into vRealize Operations so you can clearly understand how your hypervisors are performing within the Nutanix enterprise cloud platform. In particular, I’d like to highlight three key areas where Blue Medora integrations will transform your vROps monitoring experience.

Gain visibility into capacity and performance with 1,000+ metrics

The Blue Medora Management Pack for Nutanix extends your monitoring to provide easy access to health, performance and availability metrics for your infrastructure alongside databases and applications.

The management pack features more than 1,000 metrics, including key indicators like IO operations, IO latency, disk size and total IOPS. You can view these metrics in custom reports and dashboards, or use the dashboards provided out-of-the-box:

  • Nutanix Overview
  • Nutanix Cluster Overview
  • Nutanix Health Investigation
  • Nutanix Latency, IOPS, Throughput Detail
  • Nutanix CVM Detail
  • Nutanix VM to VMware Detail
  • Nutanix Host to VMware Detail
  • Nutanix Storage Container to VMware Detail

Precise control of alerts and notifications

More than 150 alerts and notifications are provided through the Blue Medora Management Pack for Nutanix. As a result, you gain immediate insight into important alerts so you are able to address them before the spread to other layers of the IT stack.

Strong integration with vRealize Operations allows you to leverage predictive analytics to pinpoint problems before they arise and optimize the performance of your hyperconverged systems.

Reduce mean time to innocence

The Blue Medora Management Pack for Nutanix automatically maps relationships between Nutanix and VMware. You will gain insight into performance dependencies with the discovered relationships, such as Nutanix VM to VMware VM; storage container to VM; and host to VM. In addition, when you pair the Management Pack for Nutanix with others from Blue Medora, you can gain a clear and accurate understanding of other relationships between Nutanix, databases and applications.

Leveraging key metrics about each of these relationships in your Nutanix environment means you have visibility into the data you need to reduce your mean-time-to-innocence should any troubles arise.. Our customers find that they can increase availability across their environments, which helps them to accelerate performance across the IT stack.
