I found a little video presenting VMware vCenter Operations
In this video you’ll see the the presentation of VMware vCenter Operations. This new product from VMware can proactively manage the performance of your Virtual Infrastructure running under vSphere.
The product is sold per pack of 25 VMs… so it might end up quite expensive for the end user, since other software vendors in the same category like vKernel or VMturbo are charging per processor socket.
A quick quote from the description page:
VMware vCenter Operations automates operations management using patented analytics to provide the intelligence and visibility to proactively ensure service levels and deliver an intelligent virtual infrastructure.
vCenter Operations Standard Edition is designed for VMware administrators to easily identify and address VMware element performance issues.
There are 3 different versions of the product:
Standard, Advanced and Entreprise.
It provides some Real-time performance dashboards with patented analytics and powerful visualization of the health of the environment.
In this video you’ll see what it looks like.
