At the recent VMworld in San Francisco VMware announced a new management solution. The package vRealize consists of vCenter Operations Management Suite Advanced edition and vCenter Log insight. You might argue that there is nothing new with this announcement. Be careful, the most important point to highlight is a licensing related aspect. With this new solution, both products can be purchased under the well-known per CPU model, just like the vSphere licenses. There was already a chance to get vCops Advanced per CPU but this opportunity was only a sales promotion. Now you can purchase the extensive Log management, analysis and troubleshooting solution vCenter Log insight per CPU also. This is a huge improvement if you ask be. Especially if you consider the per Operating Instance or OSI licensing model vCenter Log insight was shipped with. In my opinion this is an important step to make the VMware management products affordable for SMB customers.
