VMware vSphere Review

Its ability to perform consolidations has improved our company, though its stability on Dell servers needs work.

Valuable Features

  • vMotion
  • DRS
  • HA

Improvements to My Organization

The ability to perform consolidation and it's portability, flexibility, and DR capability.

Room for Improvement

None that I can think of. It's a nicely-evolved product.

Stability Issues

Overall, it’s very stable. I'm very impressed, except when running on Dell, but it works on Cisco blades.

Scalability Issues

It's very scalable, and you can add more as needs dictate. It depends on the ratio and goals for consolidation, so you can scale as you need.

Customer Service and Technical Support

The quality is not quite what it used to be since it was outsourced.

Initial Setup

It’s now very easy, was harder but now more deployment options, scripts, auto-deploy, can have full automation or manual, smaller footprint.
