VMware vSphere Review

Stable solution that meets all of our needs

What is our primary use case?

It's how we manage our server infrastructure virtually.

How has it helped my organization?

It meets all of our needs.

What needs improvement?

I'm looking forward to the HTML client being finished. That's the thing that's annoying me, but I know it's coming this fall.

If they were going to make the transition from the standalone installable client to the HTML, I wish they would have done more development on it before they released. It's not feature-complete, so we have to go back to the old client to do certain things, and I don't really want to.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a very stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We haven't had any scalability issues yet. I don't foresee us having that issue. We're small enough that, if there is a case where it wouldn't scale, it's not going to be discovered by us.

How is customer service and technical support?

Technical support is always helpful.

What other advice do I have?

I would absolutely recommend it. vSphere has been at the last two jobs that I've had and it's solid.

It's a definite nine out of 10. I'm not sure that there's anything out there that would be better. Microsoft has a hypervisor but I think VMware is more feature-complete.
