vRealize Network Insight is a data center operations and analytics application that brings consumer-class simplicity to software-defined data centers (SDDC).

Think of your entire data center as being composed of entities and their relationships. As an example, a virtual machine is an entity, and the virtual machine is part of a Host which is another entity. vRealize Network Insight provides visibility and information on numerous entities that are part of your data center.
