- Virtualizing everything
When I came, it was already being used, but it helps with consolidation of our 750 machines. We have 50 ESXi hosts, and they’re all consolidated, being able to share memory, computing.
As a partner we have VSPP (VMware Service Provider Program in which we pay per memory usage).
The web client needs to be moved from flash-based to HTML5. I would like an app as well for remote access.
I've had hardly any issues. The ESXi host can stay up and running, and the hardware compatibility is very good, and we're moving towards a virtual appliance (vCenter).
It's easy to scale.
I rarely contast them as I had a terrible experience. The made me take down all the linked nodes, and I need to escalate if I want resolutions.
It's extremely easy, and you can set it up in less than a day. We do nesting virtualizitions and labs all the time.
Go ahead and buy it. I always go with VMware.
