VMware vSphere Review

It's given us automation capabilities for server provisioning and management of configurations, although the main feature suite should include those from vCloud and vRealize.


Valuable Features

It only breaks predictively.

Improvements to My Organization

  • It's saved us costs for power and cooling.
  • It's given us automation capabilities for server provisioning and management of configurations.

Room for Improvement

I'd like to see more trickle down features from vCloud/vRealize to the main feature suite.

Stability Issues

Tentatively favorable – we haven’t had a lot of outages just wary about future upgrade ability.

Scalability Issues

I would go with unknown at this point – we're kind of small, at best were medium sized, so we're not sure what our scaling needs will be. It is not close to the maximum.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Good technical support – response time was good/ average.

Initial Setup

Can be straightforward, but it can be complex, depending on the size and what you're trying to do.

Other Advice

It's easier to deploy if you have someone very knowledgeable. Use peer reviews; they're very important.
