VMware vSphere Review

We can spin up VMs within hours instead of going through a paper trail of physical servers and install process, reducing our procurement timeline.


Valuable Features

It gives us great management capability and it integrates well with NetApp storage.

Improvements to My Organization

There's a lot of expertise within the legal industry for VMware, and we’re early adopters of VMware since 2.0.

Also, we can spin up VMs within hours instead of going through a paper trail of physical servers and install process. This has drastically reduced our procurement timeline.

Room for Improvement

It's hard to say because now that Dell acquired EMC, which owns VMware, we have to see how that flushes out.

Stability Issues

It just works, and is not buggy.

Scalability Issues

It scales well.

Customer Service and Technical Support

It's pretty good, and because we don’t use them much, this reflects on how well the product works.

Previous Solutions

We used a third-party installer, which made it straightforward. But it was complex because of planning involved.

Other Advice

Understand your requirements and see how it fits in, especially with Hyper-V as a competitor. Take into account third-party support.
