vSphere Review
I've found that it’s still the leading hypervisor on the market. Needs improvements to the Fault Tolerance feature.


Valuable Features

vMotion, Storage vMotion, Distributed Resources Schedule (DRS), NIOC, SIOC, Storage Profiles.

Improvements to My Organization

Our business has been able to consolidate fleets of physical servers to virtual servers, and is able to respond to changing business needs quickly.

Room for Improvement

Needs improvements to the Fault Tolerance feature, focus more on the performance and quality of the hypervisor. I'd like for them to add more vCPU capability.
