VMware vRealize Automation (vRA) Review

The automation of VMs is consistent. The front-end is user-friendly and intuitive.

What is our primary use case?

We use it for the automation of VMs. It is performing okay.

How has it helped my organization?

We use it to deploy databases and testing environments. It spins up quickly and breaks down fast.

What is most valuable?

The automation is consistent.

The front-end is user-friendly and intuitive.

What needs improvement?

It is very difficult to make the automation work well. This is not product specific, but more due to environment and procedures that we have in our company.

The back-end has a steep learning curve.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good.

How is customer service and technical support?

I used the technical support during upgrades. They came onsite and are very technical. They are very good

Which solutions did we use previously?

I am not aware of a previous solution. We moved to vRA because the business wanted quick, repetitive deployments.

How was the initial setup?

It was a complex setup. We had to use the consultant from VMware to make the solution work well.

The upgrade was a very difficult task. We had to break everything down and build it up new in a new version.

What about the implementation team?

We used a consultant from VMware for the deployment.
