When planning your environment, consider these recommendations for deployment topology, hardware requirements, and interoperability, and scalability. Best Practices for Deploying vRealize Operations ManagerImplement all best practices when you deploy a production instance of vRealize Operations Manager. Initial Considerations for Deploying vRealize Operations ManagerFor the production instance of vRealize Operations Manager to function optimally, your environment must conform to certain configurations. Review and familiarize yourself with these configurations before you deploy a production instance of vRealize Operations Manager. Scalability ConsiderationsConfigure your initial deployment of vRealize Operations Manager based on anticipated usage. High Availability ConsiderationsHA creates a replica for the vRealize Operations Manager master node and protects the analytics cluster against the loss of a node. Adapter and Management Packs ConsiderationsAdapters and management packs have specific configuration considerations. Hardware Requirements for Analytic Nodes and Remote CollectorsAnalytics nodes and remote collectors have various hardware requirements for virtual machines and physical machines. Port Requirements for vRealize Operations ManagervRealize Operations Manager has certain port requirements for its components. All ports specified are default ports. Small Deployment Profile for vRealize Operations ManagerThe small deployment profile is intended for systems that manage up to 12,000 resources. Medium Deployment Profile for vRealize Operations ManagerThe medium deployment profile is intended for systems that manage 40,000 resources, 20,000 of which are enabled for High Availability. In the medium deployment profile, adapters are deployed on the analytics nodes by default. If you experience problems with data ingestion, move these adapters to remote controllers. Large Deployment Profile for vRealize Operations ManagerThe large deployment profile is intended for systems that manage 80,000 resources, 40,000 of which are enabled with High Availability. All adapters are deployed to remote controllers in large deployment profiles to offload CPU usage from the analytics cluster. Extra Large Deployment Profile for vRealize Operations ManagerThe extra large deployment profile is intended for systems that manage 120,000 resources, 60,000 of which are enabled for High Availability. This deployment is divided into two data centers and is the maximum supported analytics cluster deployment.
