VMware vSphere Review

It simplifies the management of our 30 VMs and allows us to move our DR location from one state to another. The alerting function, however, is unclear both in emails and on the console.

Valuable Features

  • Unified management
  • UI

Improvements to My Organization

It simplifies the management of VMs of our 30 VMs. It's helped with disaster recovery, and we use EMC for disaster recovery, but it's managed with vCenter.

We moved the disaster recovery location from one state to another, and VMs helped us so that we didn’t have to move physical servers.

Room for Improvement

The alerting functions, right now based on performance, is not so clear now either by email or on the console.

Stability Issues

No issues, it's rock solid.

Scalability Issues

We add one or two VMs every six months, and the only issue was with Sharepoint 2013 that required dedicated memory.

Customer Service and Technical Support

It's good, no issues with response time or knowledge.

Other Advice

Make sure you get training on use, and deployment because you won’t know what you’re getting into.
