The VM Topology is a visual representation
of a VMware environment within Pure1 Manage.
The VM Topology allow users to precisely pin-point problematic areas
for rapid performance troubleshooting.
Sketches and White boards
Multitudes of white-boarding sessions were had to better understand the environment,
problem solve complex issues and to ensure ease of use for the user.
I also spent a significant time exploring various ideas/visualizations on paper.
The initial stage required us to figure out the key components and architecture of the VM Topology feature through low fidelity mockups,
and continuously studying, exploring different solutions to create a delightful experience for the user.
Interaction and flow
Due to the complex nature of the environment, we did an extensive study and breakdown of every interaction.
Show below are the final and latest iterations of the VM Topology on a GUI and interaction level.
