VMware vRealize Automation (vRA) Review

I can build machines quickly and deploy them from a central location to whichever worldwide datacenter we need.


What is most valuable?

  • The automation, that is, being able to automate server deployment, including the option to do it manually if you want.
  • Being able to collect logs and diagnostic information in one central location.

How has it helped my organization?

I can build machines quickly and deploy them from a central location to whichever worldwide datacenter we need. Also, we can collect system logs from all clusters and hosts, and then we're able to troubleshoot and view logs in one central location. This is a good thing because it saves time.

What needs improvement?

They just need to keep expanding it adding additional features.

For how long have I used the solution?

I’ve been using for just a few months, including Log Insight.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

So far so good, it's very stable, rarely any issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It’s definitely scalable, and does a lot that we’re not doing yet, but we’ll eventually be there. We’re capturing logs from all over world, and everything is in one location, so we can scale to meet that need.

How is customer service and technical support?

VMware tech support is excellent. It’s one of the best vendor tech support I’ve found.

How was the initial setup?

It's extremely easy, very straightforward, and has good documentation.

What other advice do I have?

It simplifies daily chores, so go get it.
