VMware on VMware: vRealize Log Insight

How VMware IT Leverages vRealize Log Insight

VMware IT uses different tools, but VMware vRealize Log Insight really stands out for the way it helps VMware IT scale.

Managing the VMware private cloud is a big job. VMWare&#rsquo;s private cloud spans 6 data centers and more than 325,000 allocated VMs on more than 2,000 hosts.

Just like VMware&#rsquo;s customers, VMware IT needs visibility into the health of their environment. Log Insight was the right tool to help them scale, and understand the applications used to run their cloud services.

In the words of the VMWare OneCloud engineer Caleb Stephenson, &#rsquo;Log Insight has proven itself as a critical part of our management and monitoring infrastructure. It does log management across many different components that are critical to our infrastructure—from customer-facing applications, to infrastructure running large SAP instances, to the normal run-of-the-mill testing and development environments. It gives multiple teams the deep operational visibility we need with dashboards and analytics. And now we have proactive alerts that identify trends and events. That gives our support team an intuitive way to troubleshoot issues. In some cases we can even take action before an outage occurs. In the end it really helps us improve SLA performance for our customers.

It&#rsquo;s an unbeatable tool for Root Cause Analysis (RCA). In the past, RCA would take a lot longer… and without a quick way to capture logs, it was sometimes impossible. Now we have a simple, easy way to pursue RCA and share log snippets. &#rsquo;

What is vRealize Log Insight?

vRealize Log Insight delivers Intelligent Log Management for infrastructure and applications across physical, virtual, and cloud environments. Log Insight enables administrators to connect to everything in their environment, e.g., OS, apps, storage, network devices, providing a single location to collect, store, and analyze logs at scale. Log Insight is highly scalable, designed to handle Big Data. Log Insight can digest any type of log data. Users do not need to think about it, they can just send their data to Log Insight.

 

How does vRealize Log Insight fit into Intelligent Operations and overall Cloud Management Platform (CMP)?

Log Insight comes with built-in knowledge and native support of vSphere and other VMware products, like VMware Horizon® with View, vRealize Operations and vRealize Automation™. Log Insight integrates with VMware vRealize Operations™ to bring unstructured and structured data together, for significantly enhanced end-to-end operations management.

Время пришло: «Виртуализация сети для чайников»

В настоящее время почти все корпоративные центры обработки данных виртуализировали существенную часть ресурсов серверов. Многие из них также приступают к виртуализации ресурсов хранилищ. Эти ИТ-организации осознают выгоду виртуализации: более эффективное использование ресурсов, повышение адаптивности ИТ, а также снижение капитальных иэксплуатационных расходов.

Но может ли эта выгода стать еще больше? Если сетевые ресурсы еще не виртуализированы, это означает неэффективное расходование финансовых средствс точки зрения потенциальной экономии на капитальных и эксплуатационных расходах, усиления безопасности центров обработки данных, а также повышения адаптивности бизнеса и ИТ.

Указанные преимущества виртуализации сети описываются в новой книге Виртуализация сети для чайников. Этот справочник, опубликованный издательством Wiley на средства VMware, представляет собой экспресс-курс по новому, виртуализированному подходу к сети, который является ключевым элементом развертывания программного ЦОД.

Книга написана простым и доступным языком; она разъясняет фундаментальные принципы виртуализации сетей, в том числе ее базовые понятия, ключевые технологические компоненты, сценарии использования, а также преимущества для бизнеса и ИТ. Проведите немного времени зачтением книги, и вы поймете, для чего нужна виртуализация сетей, как она может улучшить вашу жизнь и с чего следует начинать.

Доказывая пользу виртуализации сетей, эта книга объясняет, как устаревшие сетевые архитектуры ограничивают адаптивность бизнеса, упускают из виду угрозы безопасности иприводят к росту расходов на центры обработки данных. Описанные проблемы подводят к настоятельной необходимости отказаться от аппаратного подхода и перейти к виртуализации сетей.

Так что такое виртуализация сетей? В книге объясняется, как в процессе виртуализации сетей можно создавать, инициализировать и контролировать сети программными средствами, используя базовую физическую сеть как среду передачи пакетов. Виртуализация сетей воспроизводит все сетевые компоненты и возможности программными средствами. Проще говоря, она дает возможность эксплуатировать всю сеть целиком с помощью ПО.

Достоинство этой книги состоит в том, что она рассказывает о виртуализации сетей на языке, понятном любому специалисту в области ИТ. Более того, книга представляет собой справочник, поэтому нет необходимости читать ее подряд от начала до конца. Безусловно, ничто не мешает изучить ее целиком, поскольку она прекрасно читается. Но если ваше время ограничено, можно сразу перейти к интересующим вас разделам.

Так или иначе, вы поймете, для чего нужна виртуализация сетей и с чего следует начинать.

Хотите прочитать книгу? Щелкните здесь, чтобы скачать руководство «Виртуализация сети для чайников».

Дополнительные сведения:

  • Подробнее о виртуализации сети

Ora è una realtà: “La Virtualizzazione della Rete for Dummies”

Oggi quasi tutti i data center aziendali hanno virtualizzato una parte significativa delle loro risorse del server e una grossa percentuale è in procinto di virtualizzare anche le risorse di storage. Le organizzazioni IT sono sempre più consapevoli dei vantaggi apportati dalla virtualizzazione: migliore utilizzo delle risorse, maggiore agilità IT e costi di capitale e operativi inferiori.

Ma i vantaggi potrebbero essere ancora più numerosi? Se le organizzazioni non hanno ancora virtualizzato le loro risorse di rete, non stanno di fatto sfruttando fino in fondo tutte le opportunità di guadagno disponibili in termini di riduzione dei costi in conto capitale e operativi, maggiore sicurezza del data center e maggiore agilità IT e aziendale.

Sono solo alcuni dei vantaggi della virtualizzazione della rete analizzati nel nuovo libro La Virtualizzazione della Rete for Dummies”. Questo libro di consultazione, pubblicato da Wiley esponsorizzato da VMware, offre un corso accelerato sul nuovo approccio virtualizzato alla rete che costituisce un elemento essenziale del Software-Defined Data Center.

Con un linguaggio semplice e diretto, questo libro di veloce lettura illustra gli aspetti fondamentali della virtualizzazione della rete, inclusi i principi di base, i componenti chiave della tecnologia, i casi d’uso e i vantaggi per l’azienda e l’IT. Dai una scorsa al libro e scoprirai perché hai bisogno della virtualizzazione della rete, in che modo può migliorare la vita e quali passi intraprendere per iniziare.

Per perorare la causa della virtualizzazione della rete, questo libro spiega come le architetture di rete legacy limitino l’agilità aziendale, lasciando incontrollate le minacce alla sicurezza e facendo aumentare i costi dei data center. Da queste difficili realtà emerge un’unica esigenza importante: è ora di dire addio ai sistemi cablati del passato e di passare alle reti virtualizzate.

In che cosa consiste esattamente la virtualizzazione della rete? Il libro spiega che la virtualizzazione della rete crea reti virtuali, ne effettua il provisioning e le gestisce in modo programmatico, impiegando la rete fisica sottostante come semplice backplane per l’inoltro dei pacchetti. La virtualizzazione della rete replica tutti i componenti e le funzioni di rete nel software. In parole semplici, consente di eseguire l’intera rete nel software.

Un aspetto valido di questo libro è che racconta la storia della virtualizzazione della rete in termini comprensibili da chiunque lavori in un reparto IT. E ancor meglio, il libro è pensato come guida di consultazione, pertanto non è necessario che tu lo legga dall’inizio alla fine. Potresti però volerlo fare semplicemente perché il libro è interessante da leggere dalla prima all’ultima pagina. Tuttavia, se hai poco tempo, puoi saltare direttamente agli argomenti che ti interessano di più, proprio come faresti con una qualsiasi guida di consultazione.

In entrambi i casi potrai comprendere perché è necessario virtualizzare la rete e quali passi devi intraprendere per iniziare.
