VMware vSphere Review

Our end users have less downtime because vMotion allows us to move off failed hardware and onto another machine, but the web client is clunky.

Valuable Features:

vMotion, because you can move off failed hardware, and if you have a maintenance window, you can put everything onto a physical server, and then put everything back

Improvements to My Organization:

Less downtime for all end users, so if it fails you can get it up on the other machine quickly.

Room for Improvement:

I don’t like the web client, as it's real clunky, and not so instantaneous.

Stability Issues:

It's very stable.

Scalability Issues:

You can go as big as you want

Initial Setup:

It's very easy.

Other Advice:

If you don’t have it, you need it because everything should be virtualized.
