VMware vSphere Review

It is a centralized platform for hypervisoring that speeds up the migration between the nodes


What is our primary use case?

It is a powerful solution which enables us to take a snapshot and clone any virtual machine. It is also a centralized platform for hypervisoring that speeds up the migration between the nodes. 

What is most valuable?

It has a very high speed, which is a nice feature. 

What needs improvement?

This solution should have a better backup policy. Furthermore, there should be an ability to expose the universal machine. In the current version, you need to shutdown and use an offline virtual machine to backup.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a very stable product.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We previously used Hyper-V, and we found a lot of problems with taking snapshots of our virtual machines. It also was not very stable. 

How was the initial setup?

The setup was very easy. There were guidelines, and we simply followed the steps. The deployment took around three days. 

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

It is expensive. Other solutions on the market are free. We had to plan with VMware how many hosts that we needed in order to determine the price.
