Many of vRealize Operations’ advanced capabilities are due to its continuous collection and analysis of a large amount of data from vSphere, adjacent infrastructure and applications environment. Customers often underestimate the storage requirements of the system to support the amounts of data collected. We will review how to accurately estimate the sizing requirements of your environment and help you avoid many obstacles and leverage best practices.
