Note to Presenter: It is recommended that you use only a few of the Problem Solution slides and hide the rest. Try and focus on the Problems that would best resonate with your customer.
Here we see the vCenter Operations Standard architecture. Main SystemThe vCenter Operations server consists of UI components, the analytics process and message broker. vCenter Operations has two data stores. Time series metric data is stored in a proprietary file systems database (FSDB) that is highly optimized for quick read/right access. vCenter Operations also uses a PostgresSQL database (included with the appliance) to store meta data (Analytics results, etc.).Remote CollectorsAt the left you see vCenter.Vc Ops Std uses a vCenter Collector (embedded in the appliance) to get data from your existing virtual infrastructure. A collector can have several adapters instances.
