VMware vSphere Review

I have central management of all our servers and can deploy a server quickly with low hardware cost and high ROI.

Valuable Features

The management piece of it, being able to see what all my servers are doing from one central place.

Improvements to My Organization

Higher return on investment, reduced cost of hardware, and central management which is key. The most important part is that it's nimble – I can deploy a server in minutes.

Room for Improvement

The product is perfect the way it is for us, for our needs.

Stability Issues

Very stable – extremely so.

Scalability Issues

Easy to scale – able to scale out as we need.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Depending on what technical level you are on, they are responsive and very knowledgeable. Any time I have to use them a solution is forthcoming within 24 hours.

Initial Setup

Somewhere in the middle – you have to know what you’re doing and have some knowledge. One thing with these products, is that the more you use them the easier it is.

Other Solutions Considered

We looked at Microsoft, and we looked at the viability of the product, technical support, and ease of use. VMware was chosen because of its ease of use, and the product itself.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
