vCenter Orchestrator Review

A stable, scalable solution with a quick deployment

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use the solution to run my monitoring tools. For the universities I work with, the primary use is to run everything and anything.

What is most valuable?

The solution's ability to template and easily implement are the most valuable features. It offers good replication as well. 

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to integrate with Cloud facilities like AWS and Azure. Containerization, which I believe they are working on, needs to improve too.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is pretty stable. As long as you look after the boxes it's running on, and ensure they're connected, then you're fine. We don't plan to increase usage at this time.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of the solution is pretty good. We have about 100 or so users on the solution currently.

How are customer service and technical support?

I've never really had to use technical support, so I don't have any experience with them.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We didn't previously use a different solution.

How was the initial setup?

Deployment took less than a day. However, I did not handle the implementation. We only require two people for maintenance.

What other advice do I have?

We're using the on-premises deployment model.

I would rate the solution eight out of ten.
