VMware vSphere Review

It's helped us to include automatization in all processes, thus reducing maintenance hours and increasing energy savings.


What is most valuable?

vSphere's performance and stability are its more valuable features for us.

How has it helped my organization?

It's helped us to include automatization in all processes, thus reducing maintenance hours and increasing energy savings.

What needs improvement?

The price is too high right now.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've worked with vSphere for 6years now.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

I'm a vExpert so I don't have any issues with deploying it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

With v6, there were some stability problems, but after an update to a later version it's been stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

That's one of the great things about vSphere -- its scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Customer service is insufficient.

Technical Support:

Technical support is outstanding.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I previously used Hyper-V, but it isn't stable and is a complex solution.

How was the initial setup?

The initial configuration is very easy, and the deployment of centralized management is an assisted process.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it in-house.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

You only pay for what you need, so there are a lot of features that we will not use.

What other advice do I have?

If you want to sleep well, get vSphere.
