I have published an article before about Runecast Analyzer Automated HCL checks and, now it has extended its functionality to check VMware vSAN HCL checks with the release of Runecast Analyzer 3.0. Also, Runecast Analyzer has one of the most useful features, VMware upgrade simulation just to make vSphere admins lives more easier, without performing the actual migration or spending more time on vendor compatibility metrics checking the compatibility of your environments.
What Features Improved With Runecast Analyzer 3.0 Release
Runecast Analyzer added an aggregated view of vSAN Disk information, such as firmware versions, disk tier, model information and disk controller details and you have the capability of exporting all of those information to a csv file, which can be used to compare and perform other necessary aspect of vSAN deployments. With the improvement of this feature you can have a clear and wide visibility of your underline environment.
With the addition of vSAN Compatibility checks, it extends the previous ESXi host upgrade simulation feature to a higher level of analysis compatibility and accuracy. This feature can also be a relief to all IT admins, who spend significant amount of time with their upgrade activities.
The Companies who follows stringent PCI-DSS regulations also benefited with Runecast Analyzer’s editable PCI-DSS checks. I hope, we all agree with that the security compliance checks are time consuming but, those are necessary aspects of the business. Runecast Analyzer is taking this burden off from its customers, and it covers automated security compliance analysis for PCI-DSS, HIPAA, DISA STIG, and GDPR compliance audits for you.
Not only that, but also with security information and event management (SIEM), Runecast Analyzer 3.0 provides security audit logs, which can be forwarded to the external parties involved. DISA STIG 6.5, updated DISA STIG URLs, and additional files collected for analysis also provided with this release.
I’d like to bring up, one of the other significant added improvement to Runecast Analyzer 3.0, vSphere Dark theme supported web client plugin, summary widget and performance optimization.
Those are only one of the major improvements, and there are few other improvements are also in place such as token driven REST API and optimized scanning engine.
