VMware Validated Design for Intelligent Operations is a set of scenarios that provide step-by-step instructions you can use to perform common operational procedures when managing a Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). These scenarios are built on top of VMware Validated Design for Software-Defined Data Center.

Installing and configuring an SDDC is the first stage for an organization implementing a cloud strategy, be it private, public or a hybrid cloud. After you implement the SDDC, managing it efficiently is important. Use Intelligent Operations solutions to plan, manage and scale your SDDC.

vRealize Operations Manager supports performance and capacity management, log analytics, cost analytics, capacity planning, topology analysis, troubleshooting and automated workload balancing.

The Intelligent Operations Scenarios documentation provides detailed instructions for performing operational procedures across both management components and tenant workloads by using vRealize Operations Manager and vRealize Log Insight.
