Blue Medora NetApp Management Pack

A critical and mandatory component in vSphere infrastructure is Storage. I’ve covered in my book that there is a world underneath the LUN or NFS mount point presented to your ESXi host. Having deep visibility into your storage infrastructure should be considered an essential requirements.

vRealize Operations helps you peer deep into specific storage model via its management pack. Blue Medora, a VMware partner, has taken advantage of this and release management packs for NetApp.

My customer found the NetApp adapter in vCenter Operations 5.x useful. The new release in vRealize Operations 6 introduced many new and improved capabilities. I got a chance to play with it at the VMware ASEAN Lab. This is a series of blogs to cover this cool product. I will cover installation, configuration, and putting it to use. I split them into multiple posts as they are logically separate. Also, you can skip the part you already know 🙂
