VMware vSphere Review

It saves me time when spinning up machines for dev environments, is stable, and scales well.

What is most valuable?

The ability to spin up machines when we need a test and dev environment for client work.

How has it helped my organization?

It saves me time, and at the end of the day, that’s it for me.

What needs improvement?

It fits my needs right now, I honestly don’t need anything else.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It’s stable – no crashes, no bugs, knock on wood, but it’s been great.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have scaled, from about one server to three now. Its very easy to just scale up.

How are customer service and technical support?

I've used them just once. They were responsive, quick, somebody got on the phone and it worked to a resolution quickly.

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

We were limited on space in our data center, with physical servers, and we needed more.

How was the initial setup?

It was very straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

I did it, and it was easy.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Just VMware, my previous job we used it, and it was great. I’ve been a customer for a long time now. I just want something to work, and I know VMware does.

What other advice do I have?

It’s been great. I would recommend it all the time, it’s great. Peer reviews are quite important, as I need to know what others are experiencing before I do.
