VMware vSphere Review

Makes VM backups for fast recovery options but it entails more work

What is our primary use case?

I have used VMware products at five different software companies, and it was mainly used for the following functions: development environments, QA systems, internal infrastructures like wikis or ticketing. 

How has it helped my organization?

It was brilliant to consolidate systems, and it provided the best way of doing it at the time, as far as I was aware.

What is most valuable?

Snapshot and clone: make VM backups for fast recovery options, build systems and reduced setup times.

What needs improvement?

When I needed to equip a new startup, I was unable to get the budget for vSphere past finance, so I ended up adopting a cheaper alternative even though it meant more work.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
