VMware vSphere Review

The higher usage ratio of hardware and vMotion are valuable features.

Valuable Features

  • vMotion
  • Encapsulation
  • Higher usage ratio of hardware
  • Storage virtualization

Improvements to My Organization

As a consultant and service company, we can manage our own infrastructure with minimal effort, deploy new applications very quickly, and do tests very easily.

Room for Improvement

In general, the management features need to be improved. vCenter has just gotten really big and overly complicated.

Use of Solution

I've used it for over 10 years.

Deployment Issues

We've encountered no issues with deployment.

Stability Issues

We haven't had issues with instability.

Scalability Issues

We hardly ever have issues with scalability.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

We've found customer service to be average.

Technical Support:

Technical support used to be better. The response times are OK, but the solution has too many needs too often.

Previous Solutions

We've been using VMware since the beginning.

Initial Setup

I don't have any issues with initial setup.

Implementation Team

I do implementations myself.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Carefully think about what features you need now and in the future, because licensing costs depend on that.

Other Advice

Do a PoC and compare it to other solutions.
