Nutanix SCOM Management Pack Demo Video

I previously provided an overview of the new Microsoft System Center integration with Nutanix via SCOM and SCVMM (here). Nutanix 4.1 offers a single pane of glass management for Microsoft datacenter environments with full support for the Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S). The integration into the Microsoft stack is deep and the first piece I want to talk about is the Operations Manager Management Pack.

Operations Manager provides infrastructure monitoring for Microsoft datacenters and help ensure predictable performance and availability of vital applications, offering monitoring for datacenter and cloud, both private and public. The Nutanix SCOM management pack implementation is based on SNMP V3, ipmiutil and REST protocols and allow for management and monitoring of multiple clusters across datacenters, on private or public clouds powered by Nutanix technology. That also includes the Nutanix and Dell OEM models.

 

The SCOM Management Pack offer administrators the ability to visualize:

  • Key system health Alert indicators
  • Key performance graphs for latency, IOPS, etc.
  • System health objects (CVM, Pool, Containers, Disks, Fans, Power Supply, etc.)
  • Objects health-explorer
  • Knowledge Base
  • Custom creation of dashboards to monitor multiple Nutanix clusters.

There is a lot of tech coolness cooking up in Nutanix engineering at an amazing fast pace. Expect much more innovation from Nutanix in the short-term. For my next blog I will be publishing a video with the SCVMM and SMI-S integrations. Finally, I would like to acknowledge the excellent work done by Tim Isaacs in recording this video demo.

    The demo looks great! But how do I actually get my hands on the SCOM Management Pack for Nutanix?

    So I have just learnt that when NOS4.1 is released in Jan/feb 2015, that the SCOM MP will be available then. Pity the above post didn’t mention that.

    Hi bradje, you will find the SCOM MP in the customer portal, under NOS Releases, and 4.1. If you don’t see it there, please ask your account rep to request access to early availability products.

    bradje, see my last response. You can download it today under the EA program.
