Introduction to VMware Data Services Manager (video)

In this short video, I provide an overview of the configuration tasks involved in setting up VMware Data Services Manager, a VMware product that allows for the ticket-less, self-service deployment of databases whilst keeping the security, compliance and life-cycle management in the hands of IT (or the vSphere Administrators). If you find the video interesting, please check out some of the more detailed blogs posts around VMware Data Services Manager on this site, such as the architectural overview, the agent deployment steps, and database deployment steps.

On a somewhat related note, VMware Data Services Manager version 1.4 is now available. You can find the release notes here if you wish know more about new features.
