vCenter Configuration Manager Review

Good configuration management solution for on-premises and cloud

What is most valuable?

The feature that I have found most valuable is the virtual machine management across different hosts, located in different areas. This is the most accommodating aspect I have found using vCenter.

What needs improvement?

In terms of what could be improved, I would say easier management of the whole environment, meaning an easier interface.

Additionally, they could improve the hybrid-cloud environment and its management, not only for the localhost but also including the connection between the public and private cloud.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using vCenter Configuration Manager for almost three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

vCenter is scalable.

Right now we don't have too many people using the application since we don’t need that many administrators on the environment, so less than 20 people are using it.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was not so complex. My team and I did it by ourselves.

I think the first time I set it up the installation took two or three days. My second time was much easier - just a couple of hours.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of one to ten, I would rate vCenter Configuration Manager an eight. I would recommend it.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
