VMware vSphere Review

It helps us in the management of thousands of VMs in the coverage UI

What is our primary use case?

  • Cloud computing service (IaaS)
  • Private/hybrid cloud
  • Virtualization infrastructure
  • Virtualization desktop infrastructure.

How has it helped my organization?

  • High availability causes downtime service because it is needed to reboot VMs.
  • Fault tolerance is limited by the four vCPUs.
  • The service provider is not easy to integrate via API like OpenStack.

What is most valuable?

  • vCloud Director, because we may use it as the dashboard for providing cloud services.
  • vCenter 
  • vSphere, because it helps us in the management of thousands of VMs in the coverage UI.

What needs improvement?

The SDK/API to help SPs (service providers) provide the pay-as-you-go business model in cloud service.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
