VMware Software Defined Data Center Review

Great stability, simple to set up, and good technical support

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution to host all of the programs that we need. We have about four hundred VMs that we use for our applications.

We have an on-premises deployment.

What is most valuable?

There are many features in this solution that are useful. It is difficult to point out any particular feature over another.

What needs improvement?

It would be an improvement to have more functionality with hardware products. For example, performing routine analytics on a hardware network would be useful because not many network switches can do it.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of this solution is great.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is ok. I don't have any comment about this.

How are customer service and technical support?

We rarely speak with technical support, but it is good. We have had no problems with them.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup of this solution is not complex. It is very simple.

What about the implementation team?

Whether we require assistance for deployment depends on the product, as well as the time that we have. For example, in some cases, we have used vSAN, and we have somebody from IT to install it.

What other advice do I have?

We have been using solutions from VMware for fifteen years.

This is a solution that I absolutely recommend for others.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
