vCenter Operations Manager became vRealize Operations Manager a few months ago. Not only the name has changed but also the installation and the whole concept. vRealize 6.0 is now an extensive Suite with several impressive tools like Log Insight , Automation and Operations among others.
Installing vRealize is a piece of cake compared with the previous vCOPS appliance. Download the OVA file from here and start a new deployment on your environment.
