Blue Medora Docker Management Pack for VMware vRealize Operations
August 29, 2017

Blue Medora announced the Docker Management Pack for VMware vRealize Operations.

The new management pack extends the visibility of VMware vRealize Operations into Docker containers to help virtualized infrastructure administrators (VI Admins) accurately plan resource capacity for DevOps teams and proactively identify infrastructure performance issues caused by application code changes. Admins can see how containers interact with other applications and infrastructure — whether running on VMware in the datacenter or VMware Cloud on AWS.

The Blue Medora Docker Management Pack for vRealize Operations provides full visibility into the entire container portfolio to understand the demands for CPU, memory, network and disk for each container and host.

“Nearly 80 percent of organizations have a DevOps initiative, but most of those have a monitoring gap between the DevOps toolset and the operations team that supports them,” said Christian Fernando, VP of Product at Blue Medora. “By adding Blue Medora software to the VMware vRealize Suite, IT administrators have visibility into the DevOps toolset and can accelerate continuous delivery cycles.”

This joint-certified coupling of VMware’s leading vRealize cloud management platform and the Blue Medora Docker Management Pack provides customers with end-to-end, virtualization-aware visibility into all their resources, regardless of where they reside.

Examples of the product’s key features include:

- Dashboard integration – to quickly bring into visibility three use case driven vRealize Operations dashboards, including Docker Overview, Health Investigation, and Docker Container Details. In addition, the Blue Medora Docker MP adds more than 80 metrics, including KPI’s that can be used to build purpose-driven dashboards.

- Capacity Planning – to make sure the right resources are available to Docker deployments. This includes vRealize calculated CPU, Memory, and Space Capacity for Docker container resources. All Blue Medora management packs integrate with vRealize Operations capacity planning, reclamation and right-sizing tools, to improve resource planning, forecasting and utilization.

- Relationship Mapping and Discovery – to performance tune bottlenecks and proactively resolve resource contention, specifically when running on vSphere backed Docker container hosts. Users can quickly determine resource contention, even as containers are created or terminated by DevOps teams. The management pack identifies dependencies between Docker containers, virtual machines and hybrid cloud infrastructure.

The Blue Medora Docker Management Pack for VMware vRealize Operations is globally available through VMware and Blue Medora partners, and VMware Cloud Provider Program.
