Hi folks! So you have Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) and you want to monitor not just Hyper-V but VMware vSphere too?
Some people are content to use a myriad of tools under multiple panes of glass, but If or one prefer the single pane of glass for my monitoring. Well the good folks at Veeam have developed a management pack that plugs right into SCOM and provides VMware monitoring right back into that single pane of glass.
The product is called Veeam nWorks and it is the cat’s meow. There are other solutions that can achieve similar goals, but in my opinion none go as deep as Veeam. Veeam also has their own custom metrics that they can alert on that make it an even more attractive solution.
