What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it allows us to compare the billing between the clouds. It gives us a graphical representation of the difference between clouds like AWS, Azure, and other private or public cloud providers. This gives us a… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to have an easy way of modifying the reference data that is used for the purposes of estimating the total billing. All of the data is stored by VMware, and it contains information such as the price for 1GB or 1TB from each of… more»

We did not use another solution prior to this one.

For anybody who is implementing this solution, my only advice is to learn the tool and then use it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We did not consider many other options when we evaluated this solution. The PoC was straightforward and it worked well in all of the scenarios. After that, it was deployed.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is how easy it is to set up this environment. With VMware as our provider, it's very easy to set up this solution and a simple process to bring the services to staff. Everybody who is able to build a template within vCenter is able to set up a blueprint and build parameters… more»

What needs improvement?

It's not so easy to come up with improvements, there are some architectural rules and in HPE Cloud solutions they are very difficult to implement because you have an open spec. There are some things in the blueprint development that could be easier but that's my experience on using the 7.6 solution… more»

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

We are currently negotiating our VMware enterprise license agreement so it's unclear what the licensing costs will be.

What other advice do I have?

It's a very, very good solution and comparing it to others, it's definitely a solution that works. From our point of view, we are in a native VMware environment and that works fine for us. I would rate this product an eight out of 10. If it were an optimal solution and more simple to use, I would… more»

What is most valuable?

The features I find most valuable about this solution is it helps us to automate all the provisioning activities on the platform. I like the integration with other applications or vendors.

What needs improvement?

I think it is a very good solution because the technology is very consolidated with third parties. VMware is a top solution for virtualizing infrastructure. If I have to suggest to someone to use a cloud platform technologies, I would… more»

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

I used vCloud before, which is another cloud solution of VMware. It is most useful for public cloud, because it works better in multi-tenant infrastructure, while vRealize is better for mono-tenant infrastructure. For instance, when you… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This solution made us aware that we are over-provisioning virtual machines.

What needs improvement?

We are satisfied with the functionality of this solution. Although there are not many areas that need improvement, perhaps, they could provide a better hardware database and the pricing of it. It is understood that you can't equalize the price of hardware for each country. There are some kinks to… more»

What other advice do I have?
