"The most valuable feature of this solution is the workflow creation.""The most valuable feature is that it's simple and very ergonomic to use the product compared to other virtualizing product. Out of Microsoft, Red Hat, and IBM, we found VMware to be the best one.""Communication with technical support is very good. It has a repository of knowledge base articles which we can access which are very helpful.""In regards to the workflows, the fact that we can actually have a full dashboard library of all the existing workflows on this is great. We can see all the workflows and what all the actions do and can work with scripts.""It's 100% stable, it's always stable. We haven't had any bugs. The solution works very well and we haven't had any problems.""vCenter Orchestrator is easy to use.""The most valuable feature is that this solution is complete, and you don't need any add-ons.""The solution's ability to template and easily implement are the most valuable features.

Cons
"The complexity of the solution is a bit high in comparison to VMware.""Because the solution needs to integrate with other products that surround it, there is a lot of configuration required, and this can be quite complex. It's not as easy as it is with, for example, VMware.""The solution is still quite immature."

"The custom workflows are very difficult and confusing.""It is too expensive. One of the main issues is the price.""Mainly VMware integrates with other products, but there is no easy way to link with other products from a different vendor. We can integrate with other products from the same vendors fairly well, but if they could make it so integration is easier with other vendors, that would really help.""As we work towards more stability on the solution, sometimes we'll try something and it breaks and it's easier to restart the service. That's the only drawback. We've experienced this with other applications as well.""Storage has room for improvement. It's a big problem for our solution. The interface also needs improvement, it should be simplified.""The interface could be improved to bring greater user-friendliness and ease of use.""In the next release, to make it easier to write the workflows, I would l like to see more HTML GUIs.""The solution needs to integrate with Cloud facilities like AWS and Azure."
