- It provides the option to view performance with advanced real-time monitoring.
- With it, it's very easy to create new virtual machines.
- It also helps you upgrade your machines by making hot templates of them.
We have migrated several databases based on the Oracle VM solution to VMWare as we've seen a great difference between these two products.
The setup is complex even for experienced IT administrators who have worked with hypervisors, and it should be made a little easier.
We've used it for one year.
It's a little complex, but we were able to do it. Other than that, we had no issues with deployment.
We had no issues with the stability.
We had no issues scaling it for our needs.
We previously used OVM but chose VMware to consolidate our architecture.
Our initial setup was quite complex because several machines where physical machines, others were OVM virtual machines, and others were VMware machines.
We implemented it through an in-house team.
I would have preferred to implement vSphere straight away instead of OVM and then switching.
