vCenter Configuration Manager Review

A strong solution that is easy to set up and highly available

What is our primary use case?

We have a basic configuration with a host in a cluster, and a virtual machine.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are vMotion and high availability.

I appreciate it because it's very easy to set up and configure new disks and servers.

What needs improvement?

The pricing can be improved.

It is not so user-friendly that you can just start the host and everything works. However, for somebody with five or ten years of experience, the administration is not very difficult.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using VCM for close to one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable and very strong solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not needed to scale as of yet.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not had the need to contact technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Our intention is to upgrade to version 7.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not complex.

What about the implementation team?

We have an in-house team for deployment. Two of us are in charge of using and maintaining this product, and we are both administrators.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not continue to look for other products after evaluating VMware.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
