In case you missed my last post, I covered 360 Degree Troubleshooting with vRealize Operations. In this post, I’ll answer a simple question, “What is vRealize Network Insight”? The simple answer to that question is…
Know the Differences Between vRealize Network Insight (vRNI)
and the vRealize Network Assessment (vNA)?
Formerly know as…
Now VMware calls it…
vRealize Network Insight (vRNI) is the paid full version of the product, vRealize Network Assessment (VNA) is only the report/preview portion of the product, which takes 30-minutes to install. It takes more time to install the full-product. VNA only needs to connect to the vCenter. vRNI, in addition to the vCenter, you also need to connect it the hardware, firewalls, etc.
