The VMware vCenter Operations Manager Suite is a powerful collection of products for help in monitoring and management tasks in a virtual (and not only) environment. Actually is also included in some vSphere 5.5 bundle and there is the foundation edition available for free with each vSphere. But the main issue of this set of products is the complexity of some of them (like the Configuration Manager) or the powerful of some specific features (like the custom UI of Operations Manager).

Note that if you deploy it on a standalone ESXi host it does not require DRS. So how deploy this vApp with a vSphere edition lower than the Enterprise edition?
