What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the disaster recovery software. The GUI makes this solution very easy to use.

What needs improvement?

We would like the ability to write to both sites at the same time, in a synchronous fashion.

What other advice do I have?

It is always a good idea to go for training. I would not recommend this solution for somebody who has no idea at all. It is simple, but not so simple that you can't do it without training. Over time, VMware has improved a lot in terms of the interface and it's getting easier to use with a cleaner dashboard. One of the biggest things that I have learned from using this solution is how much I… more»

What is most valuable?

The ability to auto-scale is the most valuable feature. Auto-scale with automation and business cases is valuable. I also like that VMs can create any cluster via click.

What needs improvement?

The deployment is clumsy and complex. There are too many things that need to be done in order to deploy.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

All licensing costs are perpetual. You have to pay for support on a yearly basis. For our country, we are an under-developed country so the price should be lower. VMware charges too much in our country. If our customer has the option to buy… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, I used HPE SimpliVity and Cisco HyperFlex.

What other advice do I have?

They should think about the different price perspective for our country, Bangladesh, since we are a developing country. Our customers have to pay more than any other PC and laptop they are buying which is why customers don't end up buying… more»

What is most valuable?

We are able to use the product to create virtual machines. We can automate everything. We automate implementation. When a customer has their own self-service portal, they can edit their services to do whatever they want. It is a really awesome and flexible feature.

What needs improvement?

This product can be improved by allowing better integration with other systems. Better integration with systems and even as common as something like Oracle or IBM virtualization platforms. I think the integration potential is very weak with other systems. We need better integration for most products and most importantly on the cloud. Centralized management for everything will make this a much… more»

What other advice do I have?

For enterprise companies and huge data centers, you need a new cloud for each system. It's not acceptable so we try to work with everything centralized on-premises. Telecommunication companies must have a cloud solution and on-premises. For everyday work, they will want to implement virtual machines. To maintain all those systems they need to have centralized management. A huge company must have… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the clustering load. We have high availability for this product. The DSR feature is valuable because we have internal clustering, and these features are good for us.

What needs improvement?

I would enhance vSphere as an infrastructure service. Also to include the new vRealize automation and products that are related to automation. The pricing could be reduced. The interface is good, but there are compatibility issues or issues… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing is expensive compared with Hyper V and Unitech's platform.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We started with Hyper V, then we went to VMware. The decision was made by the owner to change to VMware.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution, but some of my colleagues have concerns regarding the pricing. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The mission aspect of the solution is the most valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

Typically, the ABA in comparison to other products needs improvement, but it depends on the customer. They need to offer more support for Mac. I would like to have IT virtualization options similar to a Raspberry PI, if that's possible.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is expensive, but you pay for what you get. The price ultimately could be more competitive in my opinion.

What other advice do I have?

We use various deployment models; it's dependant on the client. We're a VMware partner. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

What do you think of VMware Cloud Foundation?

What is our primary use case?

We are service providers and therefore we only sell this program to our customers. So we don't use it ourselves. Our customers use it for all kinds of purposes like VDI environments, private clouds, connection to public clouds, office automation purposes and applications running on top of this. They use it to consolidate their environment of servers and it provides them a migration path towards cloud environment or private cloud environments.

What is most valuable?

Because I don't use the program myself, I can't answer this.

What needs improvement?

Perhaps the pricing can be more competitive.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working on VMware Cloud Foundation for four to five years.

How was the initial setup?

The initial…
