Data Insight Meets Operational Insight – Customers Win.

I’m excited to announce today that DataGravity, creator of the industry’s first data-aware storage platform, will incorporate operational, security and business insights driven from DataGravity Discovery Series into the VMware vRealize Suite through management and content packs for vRealize Operations Insight and Log Insight.  The DataGravity integration packs will be available and released as a free download to customers in early 2015.  Partners attending VMware Partner Exchange in San Francisco, February 3-5, 2015 will have a chance to see a preview in action in booth #441.

Worker on computerDataGravity has worked closely with VMware since its early days and that relationship has continued to grow with the integration of vRealize Operations Insight and vRealize Log Insight offerings announced today.  Unlike traditional tools and point-solutions, vRealize Operations Insight is a unified management solution for performance management, capacity optimization, and real-time log analytics.  It provides predictive analytics leveraging both structured and unstructured data, enabling faster problem resolution giving customers the operational insight and agility that today’s operating environments require.

Meanwhile, the DataGravity Discovery Series has quickly changed the game and raised the table stakes of what customers should expect from their enterprise storage systems.  Built on top of a best-in-class unified storage foundation, the Discovery Series raises the bar by providing search and discovery, data governance, and data recovery in a single solution, giving organizations data insight and information to act upon that was previously difficult or nearly impossible to obtain in real-time.

Customers using both vRealize and DataGravity will accelerate visibility, troubleshooting and resolution of data privacy, security and compliance issues. The DataGravity Discovery Series will integrate with vRealize through advanced management plug-ins, providing an unprecedented level of sophisticated data analytics at the storage layer for VMware-based infrastructures.

Historically IT organizations have been run in silos with little cross over between functional groups and even less with the business.  The storage team has been responsible for storage infrastructure and data protection, while the applications group maintaining the line of business infrastructure, and the network and security teams controlling their own domains.  The business side of the company, risk and compliance, sales and marketing, finance and general administration run their respective silos as well.  

Those distinctions are no longer accurate in today’s demanding environments. Consistent with the widespread adoption of the Software Defined Data Center, customers need faster reaction times and shorter time to answers that are blurring these lines.  From battling external and internal threats, managing sensitive data, and to ensuring customer satisfaction, organizations have to adapt and change.

When you look at the marriage of DataGravity and vRealize Suite for operational and data insight, the IT and business silos come down. At the same time the storage, network, security, risk, compliance and line of business teams are all joined together on the same playing field and are given unprecedented visibility. The result: all customers, no matter their role, will win because of these enhanced operational and data insight capabilities.
