VMware vSphere Review

With the DR and HA functionalities, if any hardware goes down, we have another host with little downtime.

Valuable Features

  • Virtualization
  • Ability to vMotion and create servers on LAN
  • HA
  • DRS

Improvements to My Organization

The ability to build machines on the LAN as the business needs them, and the ability to have good DR and HA, with no hardware that can cause issues. If we go down, we have another host with very little downtime.

Room for Improvement

I would like them to keep the client-based system, even though they are going towards web client.

Stability Issues

It's extremely stable rarely any issues.

Scalability Issues

It's very scalable. We currently have 10,000+ servers, and 80% virtualized, so scalability has to be there.

Customer Service and Technical Support

VMware tech support is excellent. It’s one of the best vendor tech support I’ve found.

Initial Setup

It's extremely easy, very straightforward, and good documentation.
