According to the IEEE, agile methodologies have driven organizations to alter their infrastructure at an ever-increasing rate. Thus, it is important to also accelerate the deployment times for external monitoring systems to provide fast and continuous feedback to security, development and infrastructure teams. VMware’s vCenter is a product that, according to VMware’s hardening guides, requires external monitoring from the moment it is put into production. Existing solutions (e.g. SexiGraf, opsview, and checkmk) do not adhere to infrastructure-as-code principals, and are instead deployed as complex, monolithic and non-integrating applications. In response to this need, we built OmegaGraf, a one-click vCenter monitoring solution. OmegaGraf is an entirely open-source, containerized solution, configured and deployed through a simple web interface, providing dynamic dashboards, granular time series data, environment aggregation, and alerting - all deployable in under five minutes, allowing IT professionals to provide value to their organization faster than ever before.
