A Self Healing application demonstration with vRealize Automation, vRealize Orchestrator and vRealize Operation

My colleague Alexandre Hugla did a great job of showing an example of self healing app using a combination of vRealize Operatons (detection) & vRealize Orchestrator (Remediation). Here is his video Démonstration proposée par Alexandre Hugla, Consultant Avant-Vente, spécialiste des solutions de Cloud et de DevOps chez VMware centrée sur plusieurs solutions VMware pour offrir le meilleur de l'administration applicative : Le Self Healing.

VMware Pipeline management with vRealize Automation and vRealize Codestream

It should be pretty much understood now that the Software Defined Datacenter allows you to provide a lot of agility to your applications, resulting in a faster and more secure way to deploy and run your apps. In short, infrastructure is very dynamic and boost the whole development chain. That's great but the next step is leverage this super dynamic infrastructure across the software development lifecycle and in particularly at the different release management stage. An application typically go from Dev to test to "whatevere-stage-make-sense-to-you" to Prod. In each one this stage a number of task happen. One very important task is to actually receive the infrastructure needed to run the application code (and the various artifacts). This task then needs to be coordinated with the other tasks...

A DevOps example with the VMware SDDC

In this video, I show how a developper benefits from using the VMware Software Defined Datacenter to test his latest code release in a similar context to what Production is and push the change up to the Production. The tools used in this example are Netbeans for the IDE, Git as Source Management, Jenkins for Continuous Integration, vRealise Codestream for Pipeline Management and artifactory, vRealize Automation for providing a fully automated Datacenter.

Monitoring vRealize Automation by simulating machines deployments

A while ago, a customer faced an issue with vRealize Automation (VRA) due to the underlying infrastructure. The impact was that no users could deploy any new machines. The deployment would miserably fail. Since this customer were not using vRealize Operations (vR Ops) to monitor vRealize Automation I adviced him to use this as well as use Log Insight to monitor the logs. But the fact is that this approach is primarily to monitor the insight of vRealize Automation, not the vRealize Automation service itself. In many situation, monitoring the service from a user point of view is the best metric one could have. So, I also adviced him to create a workflow that would trigger a "probe" deployment in vRA and send the result to vR Ops. Since I liked that idea, I decided to actually do the workflow...
