VMware Software Defined Data Center Review

​Reduced manpower for running cabling and enables us to increase infrastructure and smaller form factors

What is most valuable?

The virtual networking and being able to make changes on the fly without having to deal with physical cabling. Easy to use, easy to connect. It seems to be more simple than some of the other products out there.

How has it helped my organization?

Reduced cost of manpower for running cabling, ability to put a lot more extra infrastructure and smaller form factors and less power.

What needs improvement?

Possibly iBGP. It is just not clear to me yet. I have had some talks with folks who are helping networks internally. But, my understanding is no one supports eBGP.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

So far, pretty good. I think it's getting better.

Which solutions did we use previously?

The company told me to. We have been using it ever since I've been here.

What other advice do I have?

You should really investigate VMware.
