VMware vSphere Review

We're able to manage our infrastructure of 12,000 users from a central location, although the web client, which uses HTML5, could be better.

Valuable Features

We're able to centrally manage our infrastructure.

Improvements to My Organization

Its ability to tie into Veeam is really slick – that makes using Veeam really easy.

Room for Improvement

I'd like to see a different client. I know they are doing the HTML5 stuff with the web client, which has potential, but it could be better.

Stability Issues

I think it’s great – we've never had any issues and we've been using it for a long time, about five years.

Scalability Issues

I think it's really good, it's good for our size and for our future growth. Our company has around 12,000 users.

Customer Service and Technical Support

I haven’t had a lot of interaction because I haven’t really needed to, but when I have they’ve been responsive and support has been good.

Previous Solutions

No. Our parent company has Hyper-V and it’s no good.

Initial Setup

It’s pretty straightforward, not complex at all.

Other Solutions Considered

I would highlight compatibility with hosts, ease of use, consistency, reliability – all things that are better than Hyper-V.

Other Advice

Peer reviews are significant, but you can tell the most from firsthand experience.
