I am trying to understand the benefits of Virtualization Manager over what the Virtualization tab in NPM provides. Can anyone help me with this?
NPM mainly gives you health and status information of the VM and hosts, but not deep insight into the configuration, performance or contention within the virtual infrastructure (VMware and HyperV). Virtualization Manager also has features like Capacity Planning, Time Travel, Object DNA, Chargeback, Cloud Cost Calculator and much more.
Let me know if you want further info.
Will the installation of Virtualization Manager replace the NPM "Virtualization" tab or just add additional components and features to the existing tab? Thank you.
With VMAN 6.0, there is now deep integration between VMAN and NPM/SAM Virtualization that extends the Virtual Infratrustructure data provided by NPM and SAM. It does not replace the data. A full Product Blog post on the integration should be forthcoming within the next 72 hours with further detail. In the meantime, you can check out the Beta Blog Post for VMAN 6.0.
