Pros
"The DRS feature from VMware is very valuable to us because it balances workloads.""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."

"vCloud Director has improved our organization in so far as it is an easy solution to sell. I believe this is the case due to the fact that it is an easy tool to manage and to configure.""vCloud is a good platform for visualization. It is very handy for monitoring. VMware can integrate with all monitoring systems like vRealize, and the management monitoring is good. I'm very happy with VMware. VMware is good in management and monitoring systems.""There are various options for scaling and that flexibility is a good option.""The initial installation and setup are very quick.""The stability of the product is better than just 'good.'""The most valuable features are the UI, the interface, and accessibility.""Good features of extensibility, which allows integration of other services."

Cons
"I would like to see a greater ability to do mobile administration.""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."

"Improvements could be made in the building feature since there isn't a real building feature associated with the product. We require a building feature to integrate with other solutions.""This is very simple in OpenShift. We are happy with vCloud in terms of the virtualization but not for redundancy and distribution.""The product could use a billing feature so we can automate billing for clients.""In the next release, we would like to see improvements with the pricing. It could be reduced.""Lacks integration with the hyperscalers."
