Education In SCOM Management Pack Development

In May, our own Vincent de Vries from OpsLogix will visit Sweden to host a 2-day training in Management Pack development together with Jonas Lenntun from Approved. As in previous years, the education event will be held at the Radisson Blu hotel at Lindholmen in Gothenburg. Vincent has over 10 years of experience in developing Management Pack for SCOM and is one of the most prominent developers in the System Center community.

The participants will have the opportunity to get tips and tricks from real-world scenarios and learn how SCOM works behind the scenes. When you have a deeper understanding of how Management Packs work, you’ll be better equipped to trim it in the best possible way.

Would you like for us to organize a similar event in Amsterdam?

Fill in the Quick Yes/No Poll below!

After this course, you will learn the most important basic skills to get started with Management Pack development. The training is for those who already work as a SCOM administrator or IT developers who want to start building their own monitoring tools for their organization(s). The course will be held in English.

I'd like to join the Amsterdam Event. Please keep me informed.

Virtual Machine Migration To Azure: Step-By-Step Guide

Virtual Machine Migration To Azure: Step-By-Step Guide

Jeff Woolsey, principal program manager from the Windows Server team, explains and demos the steps to discover, assess and migrate Windows and Linux virtual machines from VMware to Azure. The new Azure Migrate service helps you find on-premises VMs and apps using a collector appliance, then exposes VM attributes – including utilization, sizing and dependency information – to help you plan your migration.

Azure Site Recovery then provides the tools to replicate discovered and targeted VMs into Azure storage, then allows you to test and move workloads into production. Along the way, Jeff explains how the tools in Azure help you determine costs and take advantage of potential cost savings via the Azure Hybrid Benefit for Windows Server.

Using The OpsLogix Oracle Two-State Monitor Template

Using The OpsLogix Oracle Two-State Monitor Template

Although the OpsLogix Oracle Management Pack covers the most common availability, health and performance metrics that are important to an Oracle environment, occasionally you might need other metrics to suit your particular monitoring needs. With this in mind, the OpsLogix Oracle Management Pack contains templates that allow you to add custom monitors and rules in order to monitor your Oracle environment.

OpsLogix Oracle Two-State Monitor Template

One of those templates is the OpsLogix Oracle Two-State Monitor Template, allowing you to create a Rule that checks values from your Oracle environment and generates alerts in an event when a value is detected or missing, depending on the configuration you’ve specified.

Step 1

After you have clicked Create, you can then check your target’s Health Explorer on your monitor, shown under Performance.

 

 

 

 

Step 2

Select the Oracle Two-State Monitor Rule from the Select the monitoring type list.

 

Step 3

Set a name and a description for your Two-State Monitor.

 

Step 4

Write the query to be executed and pick the column name of the value you would like to monitor. Then pick the target of your monitor and the frequency of monitoring.

 

Step 5

Select if you want the monitor to alert Warning or Critical when it discovers a value Greater, Greater or Equal, Less or Equal or Less than a specified Value.

 

Step 6

Finally, configure the alert details. Choose an alert name, a description, the priority of the alert and the severity. To create the Two-State Monitor press Create.

 

Step 7

After you have clicked Create, you can then check your target’s Health Explorer on your monitor, shown under Performance.

OpsLogix & Microsoft Partner For Azure Managed Applications

OpsLogix & Microsoft Partner For Azure Managed Applications

As of now Managed Applications are Generally Available in the Azure Marketplace. We from OpsLogix couldn’t be more excited as a launch partner with Microsoft to be one of the first to offer Managed Application services to our customers.

“Azure Managed Applications enables OpsLogix customers to easily deploy and use our solutions without having to undertake on-going maintenance and servicing complexities.”
Vincent de Vries, CEO, OpsLogix

Oracle OMS Azure Managed Application

Azure Managed Applications

Azure Managed Applications enable Managed Service Provider (MSP) and Independent Software Vendor (ISV) partners and enterprise IT teams to deliver fully managed, turnkey cloud solutions that can be made available through the Azure Marketplace or through the enterprise service catalog of a specific end-customer. Customers can quickly deploy managed applications in their own subscription and rely on the partner for maintenance operations and support across the life cycle.

Azure Managed Applications is an additional partner opportunity to expand beyond infrastructure and software, by attaching services and operational support to Azure solutions. Partners using Managed Applications can invoice customers directly using Azure’s billing system (when publishing at Azure Marketplace) and use Azure Resource Manager templates to support the lifecycle of deployed applications. All of this enables an even richer cloud ecosystem for our customers and new business opportunities for our partners.

Azure Marketplace as a Distribution Channel for Azure Managed Applications

Managed applications can now be published and made available at the Azure Marketplace on the Azure Portal. Once published by the partner, they are available for any commercial customer with an Azure subscription. This enables MSP and ISV partners to market their solutions to a broader market. Partners are responsible for maintaining, servicing and upgrading the applications, once deployed by a customer. Customers benefit as they are able to run complex solutions without deep time and resource investments.

OpsLogix as a Key Launch Partner

We are excited to share that OpsLogix is among the key partners such as Cisco and Xcalar on Managed Applications. Our OpsLogix OMS Oracle Solution as a Managed Application is already live and published on the marketplace and can be consumed.

OpsLogix

We are currently offering the “OpsLogix OMS Oracle Solution” Managed Application on the Azure marketplace. It enables you to get a holistic view of your Oracle environment by inserting your Oracle monitoring and auditing data into OMS with the OpsLogix OMS Oracle Solution Managed Application. Not only does the OpsLogix OMS Oracle Solution provide performance and availability metrics, it also allows you to audit your Oracle environment, enabling you to be compliant within hours.
