Find out what your peers are saying about Cisco CloudCenter vs. VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) and other solutions. Updated: September 2020.
442,986 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Upgrades are very simple as well because they've allowed us to get updates directly in the CloudCenter Suite manager. If you need to do an upgrade to your setup afterward, you just push a button and it rolls out the parts and retires the old ones. It's seamless and very simple compared to what we've done before."
"The initial setup is fairly straightforward if you have a basic setup."
"It allows me to see how my entire infrastructure is performing in a simplified manner."
"It helps an organization quickly create test and dev environments for developers to come up with new software and patch tests."
"It is easy to drill down directly to the root cause of a problem. It goes from network to storage and having access to all the metrics. When you run 100 percent virtual, then everything is in one tool."
"It is easy to use from its deployment architecture to use cases. It is straightforward for customers to use. It's a good product and better than the earlier versions."
"All our capacity management and capacity planning processes are based on vROps. Without this tool, we are unable to predict what we need, at what time we need to purchase new hardware, whether we should upgrade, etc."
"The initial setup is very straightforward. The platform and add-on solutions are straightforward."
"It is intuitive and user-friendly. It is easy to follow and the reporting engine is easy to use."
"It helped troubleshooting issues with storms of software data that cost a lot of IO."
"The improvement I would like to see is not one thing particular to CloudCenter. I'd say it's more of a message that the system is still using a lot of the different products and if they would all just fit better together, they all could be faster together."
"I'm not a big fan of CloudCenter. I don't have anything against it, however, the on-premise version has been so hard to upgrade and maintain."
"If I had a container solution deployed on top of a VMware infrastructure, or outside as well, it would be really helpful."
"I would like more application dashboards to be available."
"We would like the return of the additional partner marketplaces, like DataCore. My customers miss the integration to DataCore."
"We would like easier customer reporting, because to do customer reports, we have to do a lot of programming."
"It was not intuitive and user-friendly in the versions leading up to 6.5."
"At the beginning, the stability was not that good. The latest versions are much better."
"It is quite expensive and if you just implement it just because you can then you won't get any benefit from it. You have to think through and plan ahead. You have to understand what the issues are that you want to solve with this solution. Otherwise, this solution is a waste of money."
"It is sometimes quite hard to use. If I need details, there is a huge amount of information that I need to review. It isn't a three-click solution."

"Get the right licensing and increase your licensing as you upgrade and grow. If you get the wrong licensing, it will be expensive, especially if you plan improperly."
"It was cost effective, because it fixed our problems."
"The predictive analysis of the infrastructure helps our customers to reduce downtime and improve capacity planning. Issues are fixed faster with vROps."
"The solution has helped to reduce the time to troubleshoot issues."
"It has reduced time to troubleshoot issues. With our customized dashboards, we can target issues and attribute them to the correct team."
"We would like to build custom dashboards in the standard license. Right now, this is available in the enterprise license, not the standard license."
"Our budgets are always tight. We would like to have more features at lower licensing levels for easier access to them."
"We have seen good ROI results. It has made our lives easier."
