VI:OPS VMware Operations

A VMware site which might be known to everyone is VI:OPS. http://viops.vmware.com/home/index.jspa

It has a growing amount of technical information on the operations side of virtualization. Taken from the site:

“VI:OPS is the short name for Virtual Infrastructure Operations, and it is a new extension to the vmware.com communities.

If you look at the existing forums and resources, they are very focused on the products and technology from VMware with most users being VCPs / VMware administrators. However, there are some topics that aren’t covered in the existing forums (such as Availability) and the purely technical focus of the existing topics is not relevant to a whole other field of professionals that have different challenges with virtualization, like the Operations team.

To bridge this gap, we created VI:OPS to widen the discussion beyond pure, deep technical by adding five topics that VMware staff, partners and customers talk about all the time but where there is no online collaboration facility for these topics.
