vCenter Configuration Manager Review

The interface is very user-friendly and the solution is simple to use


What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for a client that has an environment with three data centers with 25 hosts per site on each of them. There's also a headquarters in Israel. The solution is used at each center.

What is most valuable?

The interface is very user-friendly and the solution is simple to use.

What needs improvement?

The solution could use an internal cloud service. It should offer a vCloud foundation, but on-premises. For example, a small cloud environment or something that can be built on-premises and not hosted by Microsoft or other big hosting sites. We'd like to use some sort of vCloud to take the risks away from headquarters. The resources would be on-site on the customer side.

The reporting could be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using VMware in general for 12-14 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. Our last project was for a company with a workforce of around 10,000 people.

How are customer service and technical support?

As integrators, we often are the technical support for our customers. Their technical support that the solution offers is also good.

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

We didn't previously use another solution. We prefer VMware.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup's difficulty depends on the client's environment. Deployment can be complex or simple, but it depends on the underlying architecture. It can take anywhere from two weeks to one year.

What about the implementation team?

We're integrators, so we handle the implementation for our clients.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model.

We're an integration company.

I'd recommend the solution. I'd rate it eight out of ten.
