VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) Review

We can find problems before they start becoming bigger issues

What is most valuable?

Being able to pinpoint performance issues, or just general troubleshooting for the environment, and consolidating everything into one central pane of glass.

How has it helped my organization?

We can find problems before they start becoming bigger issues. We have all the info in one area. It's already finding all kind of things we need to do to fix the issues.

What needs improvement?

Maybe more dashboards or an easier configuration of the dashboards,

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Recommendation to anyone implementing and deploying this solution: Review the sizing guidelines, then deploy from that using the best practice guides provided.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability, for what we have, it's pretty good so far.

How are customer service and technical support?

For vROps, they are usually pretty good. We usually reach the right person and they are knowledgeable.

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

We were just using vSphere like built-in monitor before vROps.

We got vROps because we didn't have anything to consolidate all the stats, etc.

When we researched a new solution, these were the features most important to us:

  • The interface
  • Ease of upgrades
  • The value that it adds.

How was the initial setup?

We had an existing setup, but we have upgraded it. The latest version upgrades have been pretty straightforward. Some of the earlier upgrades were a bit more involved.

What about the implementation team?

We did the upgrades.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I don't know if we really considered anything else. I think the first choice was vROps.

What other advice do I have?

If you are considering vROps, do some demos of vROps before considering something else, just because the latest versions are pretty good.

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor:

  • Support
  • Ease of use
  • Ease of upgrade setup
  • Actual value from the actual product.
