The most valuable feature is the constant expansion of virtualization of all things in the datacenter, networking, storage. Overall it's the simplicity, they make things very, very simple and the most complex aspects of a datacenter are simplified down and extracted. That makes it available for any and all who are in administration. View full review »

The ability to automate both provisioning of the environment that you're trying to create as well as operationalizing some of the pieces they happen throughout the day is the most valuable feature. It is important because if you are in an environment that you're trying to scale or do a greenfield deployment, then it's easy to automate that process and remove some of the human errors that occur while deploying these environments. Also, in terms of the operationalizing of pieces, these tasks that often take up a lot of time of the users, can be automated and taken out of the hands of some of the operational teams. Therefore, freeing them up to do more pressing tasks that may require humans that you can't automate anymore is why it is so valuable. View full review »

It helps me virtualize my environment. The software stack's been out there for over 10-plus years. It's a very solid stack. The feature sets have improved drastically, especially with the new release. Since they are running the same software stack both on-prem and in the cloud that means that I don't have to have different installations. It's a consistent implementation across the board.

It's really valuable because we're expanding our server environment constantly and it helps us manage that effectively. Because we're a company with well over 10,000 employees and offices in over 50 countries, we need a central location for us to manage all of our servers and all of our ESX nodes. It's a great avenue to integrate everything together. View full review »
