AvatarWritten by | Cloud, NextGen Data Center

VMware Assessments provide a systematic process and set of tools that will help you approach a customer, evaluate their environment and assess the gap between where they are and IT excellence. The following unique assessment tools help partners build assessment-led selling strategies through demand generation and sales acceleration.

vSphere Optimization Assessment

The vSphere Optimization Assessment (VOA) is powered by vRealize Operations Manager that provides 360-degree visibility into capacity, performance and configuration across multi-cloud environments through predictive analytics and unified single console. For customers looking to manage everything from their infrastructure stack to applications and save on their cloud resources, VOA provides four powerful reports plus a summary report covering configuration, performance, capacity costs and events.

VMware vSAN Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Assessment

The HCI Assessment is powered by industry-leading live optics and is a free, online software you can use to collect, visualize and share data about your IT environment and workloads. This tool replaces the former vSAN Assessment and is the simplest way to assess the readiness of your existing vSphere environment for HCI. View details here.

VMware Network Assessment

The Virtual Network Assessment (VNA) tool demonstrates the value of VMware NSX by analyzing the traffic pattern inside the data center. The tool produces a report that summarizes insights on security risks (amount of East-West traffic) and provides a preview of actionable micro-segmentation recommendations. The Virtual Network Assessment tool takes the guesswork out of deploying micro-segmentation with comprehensive security models and firewall rules. View details here.

NEW! VMware vSphere Assessment Tool

The vSphere Assessment Tool (vSAT) will help jump start your customers’ vSphere upgrade. The tool will run an analysis on the vSphere environment, including insights into hardware compatibility, and it will also provide documentation and next steps that are needed to ensure a successful upgrade. The vSphere Assessment Tool consists of an offline desktop client to run against your vSphere environment, as well as an online portal to view your results. View details here.
