VirtualWisdom support for Dell EMC VxFlex OS

AIOps-driven Multi-hypervisor Two-layer Environment Application Performance Monitoring

Application Service Assurance

VirtualWisdom can help identify a noisy neighbor impacting the service level of a business critical application instrumented with APM tools that have no visibility and share the same underlying VxFlex OS infrastructure.

Proactive dashboards provide views across all IT assets including:

  • Compute (on-premise and cloud)
  • Hypervisor
  • Storage Area Networks (SAN)
  • Block & File storage
  • Software Defined Storage (Dell EMC VxFlex OS or VMware vSAN)
  • Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI)

Optimization recommendations based on purpose-built Machine Learning analytics via dashboards reduce the number of steps needed to identify application slowdowns.

Predictive Capacity Management

Capacity Forecaster analyzes trends across infrastructure for compute, network, and storage to avoid capacity exhaustion.

Workload Infrastructure Balancing

VM Coordinator analyzes end-to-end workload behavior and continuously rebalances shared infrastructure to ensure optimal application performance.

Problem Resolution & Avoidance

VirtualWisdom correlates metrics collected from VxFlex OS at 5 sec intervals across metrics collected from compute, networking,  and wire data to produce actionable insights. This automatic cross domain correlation is enabled by machine learning based the Trend Matcher platform feature. The platform continually automates investigations with alerting that trigger analytics to display charts expediting the identification of root-causes to application slowdown.
