VMware announced the general availability of new cloud management offerings including a significant update to VMware vRealize™ Suite 6, a cloud management platform built for the hybrid cloud. The suite was announced during the last VMworld EU, but finally it’s available for the download.

New product releases now available include VMware vRealize™ Operations™ 6.0, VMware vRealize Business™ 6.0 Standard, VMware vRealize Business 8.2 Advanced and Enterprise, VMware vRealize Automation™ 6.2, and VMware vRealize Log Insight™ 2.5. VMware vRealize Code Stream™ 1.0, a new solution for supporting agile development and DevOps processes, is also now available.

Individuals can continue to build their expertise and know-how in new products such as VMware vRealize Business and VMware vRealize Operations through classroom or online training courses made available through VMware Education Services. Three courses are currently available with additional courses coming soon:

  • VMware vRealize Operations Manager: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.0] teaches students how to use VMware vRealize™ Operations Manager™ as a forensic and predictive tool.
  • VMware vRealize Business: Costing and Implementation discusses IT costing as well as configuring and managing vRealize Business.
  • vRealize Orchestrator for vRealize Automation [V6.1] Fundamentals educates students about important workflows that can be accomplished out-of-the-box with vRealize Automation.

VMware also announced that it will be listing developer (non-VMware Technology Alliance Program partners and customers) content on the VMware Solution Exchange™. The exchange will now have listings for community content related to VMware vRealize Log Insight, VMware vRealize Operations and VMware vRealize Orchestrator (formerly VMware vCenter Orchestrator). VMware Solution Exchange provides a platform for partners and developers to build customer interest in their VMware-related solutions and for the broader management user community to share content.
