VMware vSphere Review

Gives me the most options for integration with other software solutions

What is our primary use case?

I have the whole server park in VMware and I have about 14 VDI desktops for Windows 7. I'm not happy with the performance. It's slow. Maybe it's the graphics, because I don't have a graphics card in this server.

What is most valuable?

It's easy to use.

What needs improvement?

The problem often is that when I use VMware and Citrix there are conflicts.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is very good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is also very good.

How is customer service and technical support?

It's easy to get support.

How was the initial setup?

The setup is pretty easy.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

About two years ago I tried XenServer, but it stopped because I tried to use Veeam's software which wasn't compatible with XenServer. So I chose VMware.

What other advice do I have?

VMware is a safe solution and it's a stable solution. I would recommend it.

The most important criterion when selecting a vendor is integration. VMware has the most support for other software solutions, such as backup. That's important to me.

I would rate VMware at eight out of 10. It's good but it's too expensive.
