VMware vSphere Review

Vmware ESXi - innovation, changing the old traditional ways

Valuable Features:

1) Easier way of segmenting the resources. 2) Host profiles - Template to build hosts in minutes. 3) Performance and Graphs - Easy to monitor the hosts 4) Vmotion - In essence, this technique helps you to move a live server between hosts without any downtime. 5) Robust Management Tools 6) Cost saving 7) Advanced memory management - The memory unused in the hosts can be reclaimed and used effectively. 8) High availability

Room for Improvement:

The major disadvantage that i can think off is that we have to pay for all the features to be available. Virtualization has made datacentre operations easier. As a sysadmin, managing multiple hosts is more simpler and flexible with the vmware ESXi. Running multiple hosts, operating systems on a single host makes it more efficient and saves costs. ESXi also allows you to pool the resources of several machines effectively, thereby helping to run the application smoothly without hassles.

I found it very useful to see performance graphs like CPU and memory utilization. Based on free resources, I was able to claim and assign it to overload resources :)

VMware ESXi allows for excellent management of host resources such as memory and CPU processing time.
