Additionally, we released a new version of vRealize Operations Management Pack for Skyline, version 2.0. This new Management Pack is available to users of vRealize Operations Cloud standalone, and to users of vRealize Cloud Universal (for on-premises and cloud versions of vRealize Operations Manager). The Management Pack enables you to view Skyline Proactive Findings and Recommendations as alerts, and see affected objects, within vRealize Operations Cloud. With Skyline Findings surfaced in vRealize Operations Cloud as alerts you can view identified objects, seamlessly launch the Troubleshooting Workbench and build automated workflows. vRealize Operations Management Pack for Skyline v1.0, which surfaces Skyline proactive Findings and Recommendations as notifications, continues to be available to vRealize Operations Manager on-premises users.

Support for VMware Cloud Foundation

Skyline now supports VMware Cloud Foundation v4.1 and above, the industry’s leading hybrid cloud platform. Skyline identifies management and workload domains, and surfaces VMware Cloud Foundation solution-based Proactive Findings.

  • Technical Support Trending Issues – Alert you to top issues based on our analysis of common Support Requests opened by customers  
  • Skyline Health for vSphere and vSAN Alignment – Ensure that vSphere and vSAN Findings are available in both Skyline Advisor and Skyline Health for vSphere / vSAN
