"In addition, I think some of the backup features or the prediction features can be improved.""The management of the product demonstration is weak.""We stopped using a lot of cloud services.

We will now to have to move everything to the cloud.""I would like to see VMware head towards a more GPU friendly environment.""I would like to see more software as a service solutions.""The technical support is poor. We are in Australia, but we do not have the same level of support as the US and Europe.""This solution should have a better backup policy.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"I think the cost should be reconsidered. VMware is not the cheapest solution out there, despite the fact that it may be one of the best.""VMware licensing and pricing are a bit more expensive compared to others, like Hyper-V. However, you get what you pay for.""The pricing is a little expensive. The licensing is a bit complex.""The price is high. It would be nice if VMware made a price reduction.""It is expensive. Other solutions on the market are free. We had to plan with VMware how many hosts that we needed in order to determine the price.""The pricing is a bit complex.""VMware does provide organizations with discounts. The customer service license fee we got discounts on from the supplier in order for us to get the best out of the license fees. That's our experience. We possibly paid less than our partner company. The partner is only local and not global like our firm.""The licensing fees are on a yearly basis."
