Pros
The most valuable feature is the ability to have an overview of all devices that are accessing our environment.This product made the job easy to do without having to go put hands on the machines.The ability to push an image to a machine, wake that image up, and just blast a new image to a computer without even having to touch it, and then push the software to that machine. This just made things so much more convenient for us and so much more efficient.

If they buy it directly from VMware, its hard to convince the customer that we will bring down the total cost of ownership, in the end.I am not knowledgeable with the pricing of the product.
