At a glance

As part of a wider project that included a vCenter upgrade, a health assessment was required to identify the current state of the environment and highlight any critical issues prior and post upgrade. Sonar was used to capture and analyse data and report on the environment.


The environment

1 vCenter

4 vSphere Hosts

190 Virtual machines


The solution

Sonar was deployed to provide a health assessment prior to the vCenter upgrade

  • Point by point analysis of the environment was provided
  • Key configuration issues were highlighted prior and post upgrade
  • With Sonar’s rapid data collection and analysis, it took just 35 minutes from client set-up to report completion
  • In-built guidance and recommendations were automatically highlighted


The results

  • The customer gained full visibility and an accurate representation of their environment pre and post upgrade
  • Information highlighted within the report enabled the customer to troubleshoot issues post upgrade
  • Using Sonar saved at least 2 consultant days in data collection, manual analysis and report writing
