VMware vSphere Review

Cheap and fast to deploy new servers.

Improvements to My Organization

Faster server deployment.

Room for Improvement

Standalone GUI dismissed, the web GUI isn't a worthy replacement.

Use of Solution

Seven years.

Deployment Issues

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues

As long as the network and storage attached are running fine, you have nothing to worry about.

Scalability Issues

Monitor your RAM usage closely and you will be fine.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Very good.

Technical Support:

Very good.

Previous Solutions

No previous solution used.

Initial Setup

Pretty straightforward.

Implementation Team

In-house by following the manuals and training from the vendor it went by the book.

ROI

Very high as each new virtual server saves us thousands budget wise.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

I don't know but the licensing model is pretty harsh, so don't start if you only want to virtualize a couple of machines

Other Solutions Considered

No, it was the only well-functioning solution on the market at the time.

Other Advice

Give Hyper-V a chance and look very well into the pricing model. Make sure your storage and network is prepared for a high load with a small footprint
