We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The price is high, but you get back a lot."
"Our ROI is good."
"There is an average performance boost, especially if you use VM encryption inside the VMware with another product, like McAfee. You will see great improvement in these cases."
"The license of VMware is a one-time payment and you can continue to enroll in support for troubleshooting and also administer the licenses."
"Do not buy based on price alone. Many of my customers chose the lowest cost option only to discover that the additional funds needed to access even a few more features would have been money well spent. Likewise, if you are going to spend more money on additional features, then have a plan to actually deploy and integrate those features into your infrastructure. Many customers never take full advantage of the many features that they are paying for and that can be avoided by being proactive in developing your overall vision for the infrastructure."
"You will find the cost is reasonably cheaper."
"It is expensive in terms of cost, licensing, and professional services."
"VMware is costly versus other competitors but is still one of the market leaders and expanding now with partners like AWS."
