Better pricing is always handy, but I feel it's at the right price point. View full review »

There is confusion between licensing levels. There are three different licensed versions of vRealize Automation, and there are different things which can happen in each of them. This is confusing. vRealize automation really should be a front door to the whole VMware suite of products. The front door to a cloud: Just open it up, and let everyone do whatever they need.

Our customers feel it's very costly. But when VMware is providing so many things, the cost is on par with what they're offering. It's really about whether you want to buy the full solution today and utilize it, or if you want to bring in a lot of people, integrate, and spend on that. Overall, if you look at five to ten years of time, either you buy the full solution or you will bring in the people and try save some costs, but it is going to be almost the same. View full review »

I'm very interested in the integration with Puppet. However, my organization doesn't have the funding for something like Puppet right now. If VMware would integrate that feature set (Puppet) into vRA. That would be very awesome. View full review »

Before, we had the vCloud suites, then suddenly we split out to NSX and had to pay two licenses extra just fenced because we don't use microsegmentation for firewall rollouts. Therefore, a simplified version for small businesses would be good. View full review »

It's not cheap. It would be more expensive to get an alternative though because we'd have to buy the extras for it. View full review »
