Do you dread troubleshooting VMware issues?  Is there a better, more automated way to troubleshoot?  Having spent many years at IBM’s VMware Center Of Excellence, the Runecast team has ‘in the trenches’ experience of many VMware vSphere deployments. We are IT knowledge automation experts and will discuss the traditional methods of troubleshooting and the problems we faced in day-to-day operations that led to our developing Runecast Analyzer. Runecast Analyzer uses the current VMware Knowledge Base, Best Practice Guide and Security Hardening Guide to proactively discover risks in the VMware environment and provide the recommended remediation from VMware. See a live demonstration including new features like the vSAN support, Web Client Plugin, useful dashboard widgets and lots of Q&A.
