VMware vRealize AI Cloud provides continuous optimization using artificial intelligence and machine learning to power the self-driving data center. You can configure vRealize AI Cloud to monitor VMware vSAN clusters. vRealize AI Cloud collects vSAN data and learns from it to make decisions that automatically self-tunes your infrastructure for greater performance and efficiency.

The vRealize AI Cloud vSAN Optimizer, automatically tunes vSAN configuration settings such as read and write latency of the cluster, throughput, and so on. The vSAN Optimizer displays charts that show the performance changes over a period of time. vSAN Optimizer is designed to continuously monitor, learn, and adapt. The configuration tweaks made by vSAN Optimizer are more effective than manual configuration changes because vSAN Optimizer collects and monitors data as frequently as every five minutes.

The vRealize AI Cloud Storage Policy Genie uses vSAN telemetry data, looks at hardware configurations and performance metrics and creates models that can predict improvements on clusters. Storage Policy Genie does not make changes to the cluster, but looks at the current vSAN environment and makes recommendations which are ranked by score. Storage Policy Genie recommendations are to improve the performance of your cluster. Using the charts displayed, you can understand how these performance recommendations affect other parameters such as the capacity.
Note: The vRealize AI Cloud Storage Policy Genie feature is available only as Tech Preview and to select customers of vRealize Operations Cloud.
