VMware vSphere Review

We can manage it from a single pane of glass, although the web client is disappointing.

Valuable Features

It enables vMotion, DRS, and HA.

Improvements to My Organization

The ability to consolidate and portability, flexibility, and DR. The management thereof is a single pane of glass.

Room for Improvement

The web client is botched.

Stability Issues

There's not many problems with it.

Scalability Issues

It's very scalable and increasingly so because of what they’re doing with applicances. There's no trade-off between maximums of Windows and appliances.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Since they outsourced it, response times are not what they used to be.

Initial Setup

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