VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) Review

The real-time notifications are the most valuable feature


What is our primary use case?

We use it to monitor applications, infrastructures, and operating systems.

What is most valuable?

The real-time notifications are the most valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

I would like to have external add-ons and third-party support added to the solution.

It was not intuitive and user-friendly in the versions leading up to 6.5. After version 6.5, it improved and has been user-friendly.

It has issues that require manual handling, such as the server allows metrics. However, this is difficult to set up.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have never had stability issues with this platform.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I haven't tested scalability.

How is customer service and technical support?

I have never needed to use technical support.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I was holding the license, so I decided to give it a try. The solution proved itself.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very straightforward. The platform and add-on solutions are straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

I implemented it on my own.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have evaluated SolarWind and Microsoft SCOM. 

vROps's key value is its ability to have a hypervisor metrics of monitoring, which other products do not have.

What other advice do I have?

If your infrastructure is VMware-based, you will get the most value out of the solution.
