vRealize Operations 6 – Quickest deploy ever

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. The wizard is pretty simple and now just one VM will be created. All we need to know is easy-to-find information like Ip Address, Mask, DNS, Gateway …

Another important thing when deploying vRealize is the sizing. You’ll have these guidelines.
