VMware Software Defined Data Center Review

It has a great support system, but is difficult to deploy


What is our primary use case?

I use this in an enterprise and as a service provider for the banking industry in Paraguay.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the strong support. Also, the H-Appliance feature that supports MPLS is very important to us.

What needs improvement?

The storage utilization needs to be improved. It is not a perfect product. It needs to be more secure and it needs more aesthetics. 

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is very scalable. 

How are customer service and technical support?

The tech support team has a lot of practical experience. 

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

We looked at other solutions, but we found this to be the strongest solution. The other products in the same category include Amazon, Azure, and Google, but they do not have the same features and the same "open solution" policy.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was complex. You need to be knowledgeable in using a physical data center in order to implement this solution.
