VMware vSphere Review

Best for private clouds and big enterprises

What is our primary use case?

I use VMware vSphere to run all my applications in a private cloud. I had all the applications in the standalone mode. I migrated them to the cloud. 

What is most valuable?

VMware vSphere is the best private-cloud solution.

What needs improvement?

It is expensive. They can improve the licensing cost for Cloud Director.

They can also improve the integration with other applications and the metering feature, which is currently not flexible.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using VMware vSphere for more than seven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. We have 100 users, and we plan to increase the usage.

How are customer service and technical support?

The price is very high for professional services. I don't know why.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is expensive in terms of cost, licensing, and professional services.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it for big enterprises. I would rate VMware vSphere a nine out of ten. It is the best solution. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud
