Pros
"The documentation has been satisfactory.""I am very comfortable with it, including it's reporting on threats and through its activities."

More Fortinet FortiPortal Pros »

"Alerts and monitoring were most valuable. It was also pretty user-friendly and interactive. I was able to generate good reports in PDF and HTML formats, which was really helpful.""The visibility it provides from apps to infrastructure and across multiple clouds is also great because it's a tool that aggregates a lot of data, both on-premises and in the cloud. It aggregates everything in one tool, which helps you to analyze the performance and the capacity of the infrastructure.""The dashboards are really good. They give you a glimpse of what is really going on in your virtualized environment. The ability to create customized dashboards based on your needs is also great.""It is efficient and easy to manage. We can find what we need from the software's interface.""VM rightsizing is another very good feature and capacity planning is something else that I like about it.""The most valuable feature is that everything is integrated for monitoring, performance, and troubleshooting.""The tool helped the organization in all monitoring tasks when being delivered as a service for customers helps them to generate early alarm templates, being a cloud service provider is delivered as part of the IaaS to generate memory consumptions processing and storage additionally can be configured parameters such as networking and services that are configured on virtual machines.""When there is an issue at the disk level in vSAN, vROps gives us an alarm that the issue is happening on particular disks. Other solutions cannot give this type of alert for vCenter. Even vCenter cannot give that type of information."

Cons
"It's useful for us but if it had more educational reporting, it would good. It's not necessarily lacking but it's an area that could get better.""Fortinet FortiPortal could improve by providing a learning portal and better security."

"I would like to have more documentation, in the form of knowledge bases, that better explain the technology, related products, and what the capabilities are.""vROps has a hypervisor level of monitoring going on in our data center. We are using other products, like SolarWinds, to have a service and OS-level of monitoring. Because we are using two solutions simultaneously for different levels of monitoring, it would be really nice in the future to have a service monitoring or OS-level of monitoring in vROps, e.g., adding the support online for monitoring services, like Linux services, Linux Databases, and Linux servers as well as Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft Active Directory, or other Microsoft services, since we use them a lot. It would definitely help us in the future if vROps implemented this feature.""Lately, the chargeback site has improved, but it could be simpler. You need to create your own dashboards. It should be simple to get a virtual machine and break down the compute and storage costs.""In the past, when we have raised priority one tickets and they have sent us level one engineers. This wasted time because the L1 was only able to perform the troubleshooting steps that we had already completed.""Technical support is normally good but there is sometimes a delay in their response.""If I could integrate with vCenter with vROps, then I could execute more things by managing vSphere from within vROps. That would be great.""We integrated vROps with vRealize Log Insight, but it was not helpful to me. It was not giving me any good data.""The database services in the tool as backup services are friendly and can be deployed in the release to production. However, in the new features, I would like to include more online documentation that can help service generate early alerts."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Fortinet FortiPortal is relatively expensive, but being an industry-leading firewall, it does come with a cost.""The price of the solution is reasonable."

More Fortinet FortiPortal Pricing and Cost Advice »

"vROps is a bit expensive and that's a reason that small clients say, 'No, I don't think we need this.' From a pricing perspective, it is quite steep. But 'expensive' is relative, depending on what you need. Others might say, 'It is expensive, but I think we can use it to better our environment.'""The solution has a huge cost. If we could just have one license covering everything that vROps can do, that would be great. I would prefer it this way.""This is an enterprise-level product and everything is included in the VMware Suite license.""The billing is complicated because every country has a different option. Here in Chile, we don't pay for this kind of service with the Chilean pesos. We use another currency. In the future, I think vROps needs to work with governments for a native solution.""The value that we get from vROps is okay. It could be cheaper.""We have definitely seen ROI by removing unnecessary servers and VMs. By having vROps as an assistant when it comes to monitoring and managing resources, it has helped us a lot with cost savings and managing expenses.""The licensing is not clear at the moment if the on-premises pricing is the same as on the cloud. I am checking on the pricing. However, you can save a lot of money with the cloud solution because you need to spend time installing, upgrading, and connecting with the on-premises solution. Also, you don't need to spend time scheduling the maintenance and maintaining the solution when using the cloud version.""Every VMware product is a licensing challenge. It's always costly. It's based on processors. From a technical side, the product is very good. The challenging part is always the licensing. They should have some kind of alternate pricing models."
