More Dell OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter Pros »

"VMware is good for virtualization.""The solution is stable.""The solution has many valuable features. Virtualization is flexible and it has simple clustering. However, the most important feature is the ability to move between VMs. The vMotion features are very good.""I have found the Storage vMotion feature to be the most valuable.""The provisioning setup of VMs is good.""The most important feature is the ability to balance the servers with Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS). It is a very useful feature and should be mandatory for vSphere to have but it is only available in the enterprise edition. It should be available in all versions.""It affords us different views of the VMs created by vSphere so we can control them better.""I have found the solution to be flexible, and the vCenter and vMotion useful."

Cons
"When something breaks, it's not easy for us to fix. I'm running a banking solution at my company and when there's a problem, I need to be proactive and quick to resolve the problem immediately."

"Integration with different platforms could be improved.""The solution is quite expensive.""The support for the latest version could be improved.""Sometimes you can't find items and you need to log onto different physical servers to do technical tasks. I don't fully understand why this is the case.""We would like to see the container-based operating system launched soon for this solution.""Lacks a simplified integration with services automation.""In the next release, I would love to have Java as a service, platform as a service, and container as a service.""The way that vSphere manages the alerts on the data machine is not easy to configure."

We have a prepaid or permanent license.""When comparing the price of VMware solutions to other vendors, such as Nutanix, they are costly.""Container support is the last great addition for VMware and it is worth the money you spend on it."
