Are you thinking about being more proactive around your IT management? A modern, competitive and accelerating business has hybrid infrastructure, heterogeneous environments and agile development – which all require a new way of thinking. Having a unified view across sprawling environments, tools and interfaces is a huge help. This week we have a quick bit on Operations Management Suite (OMS) – the first step to a truly unified IT management service (huzzah!)
An insights and automation platform is the heart of OMS, a cloud based extension to System Centre (SC) that works on prem (with or without SC) or can integrate with the cloud, on any cloud including Azure, AWS, Windows Server, Linux, VMware, and OpenStack.
First and foremost we want to support your servers – wherever they are. If you’re using Azure, you should also know you can use Azure credits through OMS. Speaking of Azure, Azure Diagnostics can be indexed from your storage account to be searchable in OMS.
A massive amount of machine data from any source, regardless of data type or format, can be accessed, visualised and analysed in OMS through a unified search experience and custom dashboards. This is a great way to troubleshoot across devices, operating systems, workloads and user actions.
A unified view of your datacentre enables you to plan better and pinpoint security-related events such as a fail log on. Missing system updates are also easily identified, then followed up by running the automation to push the patch. Responses can be automated to events, a group of events or to stats from an aggregate set of events.
Automation capabilities also free you from all those frequent, time-consuming, and error-prone cloud management tasks with precision and scale. Effortlessly create Automation runbooks with the help of the Automation Runbook Gallery and with a quick drag and drop in the graphical authoring tool, an easy visualization of your orchestrated workflow. Automate the integrated replication of vital workloads based on policies that you set and control.
Basically, OMS is really, really simple to use. For any size or complexity. Your environment can be running in any number of clouds. In any number of workloads. In any type of platform.
