What is most valuable?
What's valuable to us is that we can create virtual routers and NICs. We setup multiple vROps for virtual routers within our Ericson cluster, as well as multiple NICs. Also, scalability is very good and deployment was relatively easy using templates.
Additionally, deploying vROps allowed us to implement a solution in software that we were unable to achieve using the physical devices.
It was also an advantage that we could stay with one platform and one vendor.
How has it helped my organization?
We really benefited by using templates, which made deployment much quicker.
What needs improvement?
Integration with OpenStack would be a very useful improvement.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
We did not encounter any issues with stability.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
vROps can scale quickly and easily. We have around 20-30 hosts running really large applications.
How is customer service and technical support?
We used technical support quite a lot. They worked hard to find solutions to our problems and helped us with product updates. But, I think they need to improve.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?
We were using VMware for a long time, so we just continued with their products.
What other advice do I have?
If you scale out the environment and want to use vROps, this is a tool you should look at.
