Senior Tech Engineer at McKinsey & Company
We initially rolled vROps out for environment health and for the ability to look at the abilities to stabilize the environment. We've actually been able to take advantage of it also with resource reclamation which was a big selling point for leadership. View full review »

Saurabh Chandratre
Director Solutions Architect - EMEA & APAC at Blue Medora
For most data center operations teams, it is pretty hard to get a comprehensive view of what’s going on in their IT ecosystem. Virtualization and cloud service abstractions have made cross-platform relationships between different layers of the IT stack more complex. Heterogeneous, hybrid environments are the norm. IT pros have found visibility to be the #1 challenge facing operations teams. VMware Blue Medora management packs aggregate operations data from the leading server, storage,compute and database applications into vRealize Operations for rich analytics and helped to achieve full stack view of the environment.

Mark Stringer
IT Consultant at Sureskills
The company I work for is Sureskills. We're a consultancy based company. We have multiple customers that we sell a lot of virtual products to. We don't just deal with that. We deal with a lot of Microsoft, Stack, and Dell EMC products as well, but we do an awful lot of VMware based products. Our primary use case is two-fold. From one perspective it gives the local on-site IT people some ability to see what's happening with their virtual state and let them know if there's any issues or problems that may be starting to come to the surface. Secondly, from our perspective, because we provide support to these companies, it allows us to quickly see from a number of different reasons why there would be issues from this. It's useful from both sides. View full review »
Brad-Long
IT Infrastructure Manager at SMC USA
We are branching into NSX. This solution was purchased with NSX to give us more insight into our environment. We're looking to do a lot more microsegmentation and figure out what the workflows are or what the data flow is between applications and between hardware so that we can minimize bottlenecks, get a better idea of performance issues, and be able to really lock down what we're doing for security. We're also looking to make sure that our microsegmentation is set up correctly and that we don't have data leakage in places that we don't want. View full review »

We use it to gain more insight into our environment, with a simple, easy-to-use interface.

Our primary use case is to monitor the performance of the virtual machines as opposed to monitoring the performance of the OS. We'll monitor OS and stop at the OS, whereas vROps will pick up what's going on underneath. If the datastore is having a problem, it will bubble up to the VM and show us that. View full review »
