VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) Review

Use it to measure and monitor your environment

What is most valuable?

Why vRealize is the most valuable for us, for my company, is that we use it to measure and monitor the environment.

How has it helped my organization?

We're saving resources, because we are monitoring them. We know where they go and how the capacity is spent, thus we are saving.

What needs improvement?

The dashboard is too complicated. Those badges that they give you as a rating badge are too hard to understand what they mean. This is something that they need to figure out.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues. So far, so good. We are happy with it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

So far from our environment, it is okay.

How are customer service and technical support?

We haven't used it yet.

I have a contact in VMware. Every time that I call VMware, they help as I expect, though they are not that easy to reach compared to say, Cisco support.

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

We used to use SolarWinds and the support was not great.

VMware has been much better.

How was the initial setup?

I was involved in the setup. It was straightforward.

It was just that the dashboard is a little hard to understand at the beginning, but after you get used to it, you're fine.

What about the implementation team?

In-house. They were were helpful.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We went straight from SolarWinds to VMware.

We chose VMware because of its time on the market, the company's reputation, and the support.

I mostly use VMware products. They integrate well together. I also participate on VMTN, the VMware community online.

What other advice do I have?

We invested in this solution because monitoring was really important for us.

I would definitely recommend this solution.
