vRealize Network Insight Review

We can see everything going on in NSX and get a good picture of our environment

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to use it do design and for troubleshooting the future.

We have had the product for three weeks now.

How has it helped my organization?

We can see everything going on in NSX and get a good picture of our environment.

It is still in our lab environment.

What is most valuable?

  • Its open design.
  • Figure out what's being used in our environment.
  • Building roles.

What needs improvement?

The product is slightly complex use, while still being user-friendly. It could use more training modules, as it is not a straightforward product.

For how long have I used the solution?

Still implementing.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is pretty stable.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support has been good so far.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We've owned NSX for three years and now starting to deploy it, which is why we went with vRNI. We did not even consider another solution to go with it.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was simple. It took about an hour.

What about the implementation team?

They are coming onsite in about two weeks.

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

It's an expensive product because we have a lot of nodes. 

They should include the product in NSX because it's important to have it for deployment.

What other advice do I have?

Do the training before purchasing. Research the product and its competitors.

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: technical knowledge. They need to understand their product.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
