In VMware Aria Operations, Capacity Optimization is a key feature that focus on efficiently utilizing and managing resources within a virtualized infrastructure, such as a VMware vSphere environment. These features help organizations maintain optimal performance and maximize the utilization of their resources while ensuring that capacity remains within acceptable limits.
This aspect of VMware Aria Operations involves forecasting and planning for future resource needs based on historical data and current usage patterns. The goal is to ensure that the virtual environment has the necessary resources to accommodate workload growth without sacrificing performance. Capacity optimization involves activities like identifying underutilized or overprovisioned resources, predicting when additional resources will be needed, and suggesting right-sizing of virtual machines and hosts.
Performance improvement focuses on enhancing the efficiency and responsiveness of the virtual environment. It involves monitoring the performance metrics of virtual machines, hosts, storage, and other components to detect performance bottlenecks, latency issues, and other concerns that could impact the overall performance of applications running on the virtualized infrastructure. .
