- Ease of upgrading
- Ease of backups
- Ease of deployment
We now have a quicker deployment of machines, as it’s been far more cost effective than our physical servers with a smaller footprint.
It’s pretty good the way it is, I can’t think of anything else I need.
It’s very stable.
We started with maybe 10, we’re up to 80, and it’s been very easy to add them all on.
I’d say they were very good, they’re very quick and responsive, I can’t think of them ever not being able to an issue.
We were running physical servers, the industry was headed that way, and we knew that we had to. Furthermore, 80 physical servers is too much to fit into one room.
I didn’t set it up, but I think they had a consultant come in.
Probably the availability of training is the most important thing to look at when choosing a vendor. It’s not perfect but it’s pretty good, and VMware is great.
Peer reviews are pretty important, it’s an easy way to look at hands on market research that you don’t have to pay for, to be honest.
