VMware Cloud Foundation Review

Good clustering, high availability, and the technical support is good

What is our primary use case?

We were working with versions 5, 5.5, 6, then upgraded to 6.7.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the clustering load. We have high availability for this product.  

The DSR feature is valuable because we have internal clustering, and these features are good for us.

What needs improvement?

I would enhance vSphere as an infrastructure service. Also to include the new vRealize automation and products that are related to automation.

The pricing could be reduced.

The interface is good, but there are compatibility issues or issues with the certificate for the VCenter. Many times when you access the link you are told to go to a trusted certificate.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have three to four years of experience with this solution.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This solution is scalable and easy.

We have 50 hosts.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is very good.

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

We started with Hyper V, then we went to VMware.

The decision was made by the owner to change to VMware.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward at times and complex at other times.

What about the implementation team?

We started the installation with the help of the partners then we created the clusters and other services ourselves.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing is expensive compared with Hyper V and Unitech's platform.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution, but some of my colleagues have concerns regarding the pricing.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
