Something missing from vRealize Operations? Foundation.


If you look at the version comparison for vRealize Operations, you’ll notice that Foundation version is missing.

After further research I see that VMware is not offering a “free” option right now for the new Operations Mangement Product. You can still demo vRealize Operations for 60 days.

VMware is determining whether it makes sense to release a Foundation version of the updated product.

Personally, I found it valuable at several customer engagements.  It was an added bonus when looking at the complete vSphere Solution and products that come with it out of the box.

I hope VMware will “realize” that this is another benefit for vSphere users and provides a foundation to discussing further versions if we can show value.  I do understand we can still deliver that using the VMware Optimization Assessment, but again, access to Foundation version of Operations was another differentiator when comparing VMware vSphere against Hyper-V, KVM, Citrix, etc.
