Product Descriptions

VMWARE VSPHERE WITH OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT: Combines VMware's virtualization platform with operational insight into virtual environments for monitoring, performance, and capacity management. Monitoring the environment provides simple, visual, and holistic view of the entire virtualization environment. vSOM provides the ability to diagnose performance data across VMs, clusters, and farms to form intelligent trends and insights. Also proactively manage performance and improve availability for vSphere. Capacity management allows unused VMs to be reclaimed and right-size over provisioned VMs. There are three new offerings: VMware vSphere Operations Management Standard, Enterprise, and Enterprise plus. Each edition of vSphere Standard, Enterprise, and Enterprise Plus is combined with vCenter Operations Management Standard Edition. Also with this announcement a new group of three vSOM Acceleration Kits(AK)are being introduced. Each kit supports up to 6 CPUs and has one instance of vCenter Server Standard included. vSOM Standard AK includes vSOM Standard and vCenter Standard, vSOM Enterprise AK includes an upgrade to vSOM Enterprise and VDP(vSphere Data Protection) Advanced. vSOM Enterprise Plus AK upgrades to vSOM Enterprise Plus and also includes VDP Advanced.
Each edition is licensed on a CPU bases as VMware vSphere is and will come with 1, 3, and 5 year subscription options. As with all VMware, SW support must be sold at the time of purchase with the license and subscription. IBM has a full suite of ServicePacs that can be purchased to support the customer.
