vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager 1.0

Something got a release note today known as vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager 1.0.  What is this software about?

VMware has a bundle known as vCloud Suite.  Just a breakdown what is in vCloud Suite/
vCloud Suite is a comprises of two things: vRealize Suite + vSphere Enterprise Plus.

vRealize Suite (depending on Editions) will consist of some or all of the below:
  • vRealize Automation
  • vRealize Business
  • vRealize Operations Manager
  • vRealize Log Insight

vSphere (depending on edition) will consist of some or all of the below:
  • vCenter Standard (purchase separately)
  • ESXi
  • vSphere Replication
  • vSphere Data Protection (last major edition)
  • vSphere Big Data Extension

Looking at the above, you start to see that installing and managing the upgrade will be a big tedious process.  Lots of planning and double and triple check the compatibility matrix.

So here comes vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager.  This handles the deployment and patching the vRealize Suite components that you own.  For your Day 0 to Day 2 tasks which can relieve admins a ton of work. Assuming that the infrastructure; vSphere, vSAN, NSX is already deployed.
