Welcome to VMware vRealize Operations Package (part of the SDDC Integration Program)

The VMware vRealize Operations Package enables our partners to develop vRealize Operations Management Packs using vRealize Operations APIs and SDK. vRealize Operations provides the operations dashboards, performance analytics and capacity optimization capabilities needed to gain comprehensive visibility, proactively ensure service levels, and manage capacity in dynamic virtual and cloud environments.

Program Overview

vRealize Operations Management Packs extends vRealize Operations Manager capabilities to adjacent technology domain such as storage, network, compute, or application. This package is part of the SDDC Integration Program. vRealize Operations Management Packs include as a minimum the following components:

  • Adapter – one of more Java files implementing vRealize Operations Management APIs and providing the data pipe for time series data in events.
  • Pre-built dashboards – set of user interface definition files that we built by configuring vRealize Operations Management widgets around the domain specific information
  • Domain specific knowledge – set of use cases data and events that are identified by VMware and the partner as the key information that can help customers optimize their operations environment.
  • EULA – Partner provided usage agreement
  • Self installing package - used by customers to apply the solutions component to their vRealize Operations installation.
  • Solutions documentation – Partner provided solutions description and user guide.

 

Note:  This package does entail a vetting process.  Based on the process, partner solutions may or may not qualify for this certification and listing.
