Proactive Best Practices Analysis

Runecast continuously scans your AWS, Azure, GCP, Kubernetes, PowerShell and VMware for their alignment with hundreds of vendor Best Practices, including for both SAP HANA and Pure Storage on vSphere and for vSphere on Nutanix.


It is hard to keep up with the latest Best Practices and validating your configuration costs

Unjustified deviations from best practices can easily turn into a disaster.

  • Workloads evolve over time and so do the Best Practices for configuring them.
  • Best Practice deviations can bring availability, performance and security issues.
  • Cloud Best Practices deviations can increase your bills unnecessarily.
  • Configuration drift over time makes it harder to stay aligned to Best Practices and continuous fit/gap analysis costs you time.
  • If you run SAP HANA on vSphere, Pure Storage on vSphere, vSphere on Nutanix or other integrated workloads or technologies, there are even more Best Practices to follow.


Automated Best Practice auditing with Runecast Analyzer

Runecast maintains a database of the latest AWS, Azure, Kubernetes, PowerShell and VMware Best Practices. It audits your Hybrid Cloud continuously, reports violations and provides recommendations.

  • For VMware, in addition to the standard VMware Best Practices (for vSphere, vSAN, NSX and Horizon), Runecast validates your environment against Best Practices also for SAP HANA on vSphere, Pure Storage on vSphere, and vSphere on Nutanix.
  • Granular Filters and Annotations enable you to filter out any Best Practice rule from any portion of your infrastructure. You can also Annotate any Best Practice violations and add a justification or a note when it will be fixed.
  • All Best Practices are categorized based on Severity (Critical, Major, Medium, Low), Infrastructure Layer (Compute, Network, Storage, Management) and Design Quality (Availability, Manageability, Performance, Security, Recoverability) so you can focus on what matters.
  • The Custom Profiles feature allows you to build your own sets of Best Practice profiles and have Runecast Analyzer report on them.
  • The Historical view allows you to track how your configuration changes and where a Best Practice violation occurred or was resolved.
  • Multiple reporting options allow you to generate Best Practice health check reports in PDF, CSV, or over email.
  • Our patented AI solution tracks any vendor Best Practice updates vetted by our highly certified engineering team.

"One of the best tools out there"

Manually filtering through vendor-provided best practices, security recommendations, and compliance takes countless man-hours. I have used Runecast Analyzer to streamline this process across both on-premises technologies, such as VMware vSphere, Horizon, and NSX-T, to cloud solutions such as AWS and Azure. The time and efforts saved have been incredible.

“The best in its league”

Run it... you will be amazed by the findings. We always think that a lot of applications are secure by nature and by how they’ve been designed, but after deploying Runecast you really understand the gaps that you might have in your environment and it’s definitely an eye-opener.
