VMware vSphere Review

It's a stable product, scales out well, and provides us with the ability to recover from hardware failures.

Valuable Features

DRS and vMotion are the most valuable features.

Improvements to My Organization

Recovery from hardware failures is easier than before, growth is much easier, and it's very easy to scale out.

Room for Improvement

I don’t know that I'm looking for any improvements. I'm looking to use additional features that are already out there, and different additional products that they have out there.

Stability Issues

Good – rarely have any problems.

Scalability Issues

Very easy to grow out and scale.

Customer Service and Technical Support

It depends on the issue, sometimes we call the support and talk to them but many times it's just an issue of going on to forums and see how other people are dealing with the issue.

Initial Setup

Very straightforward – no problems setting up.

Other Solutions Considered

Potential vendors have got to provide a benefit which is hopefully not an additional cost. Or, at least be able to make up for that cost somewhere else.

Other Advice

Peer reviews, are very important. I prefer to start with those before I contact the vendors.
