vRealize Network Insight Scalability

Scott Mathewson
SDDC Practice Lead at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We typically have been using it in medium-sized businesses, so we haven't scaled it out to thousands. We have small customers and a couple customers who we do larger amounts in the thousands. However, for us, it's in the hundreds VMs and/or hosts, and we have had no issues at that level. We have been able to scale horizontally and vertically. It's controller-based and VM-based. It takes a couple different VMs to run it, and it seems to be covering all the scale that we need. View full review »

I have it deployed across four vCenters, four proxy VMs. It seems to take up an awful a lot of resources, but it seems to scale pretty well. We added an entire environment to it and it didn't seem to have any problems with that at all. It adjusted the data very quickly, and I can find what I need really fast. View full review »

We haven't had to scale it, which is surprising, because with almost all of the other VMware products that we use, we have scalability issues. This solution seems to handle it better than most of their other products. View full review »

When it goes into production, it's going to have to scale from this one, small installation to a much larger installation for our purpose. It seems like it will do it pretty easily, but we won't know until we actually do it. View full review »

I don't know that I can speak to the issue of scalability, to a giant enterprise level, but we have quite a few servers in our farm, and virtual machines, and it has scaled well to that. View full review »
Brett Frank
Sys Admin at Aurora public schools
Scalability has not been an issue at all. Since it's a brand new build, I'm not quite sure yet because we haven't had the need to add additional servers or additional VMs. But I don't anticipate any challenges there. View full review »

We haven't made it to the point where we're scaling yet. We haven't hit any performance issues that would cause us to evaluate the scalability. View full review »

You can deploy proxy VMs, so it means that if you need to monitor different segments or different deployments of NSX you always can deploy a proxy VM and then monitor those networks within your vRealize Network Insight. View full review »
Bo Crook
Staff SYS Admin at a manufacturing company with 1,001-5,000 employees
I have not been able to get an accurate impression of the scalability. We only use it across one network. It's a large network, so it seems to have scaled for that. I don't know how it would scale for something even larger than what we have currently. View full review »

As far as scalability, give vRNI disk space and it scales out. View full review »

We can see that it is scalable, but once again we're not there yet. We need to do more testing to confirm that it is actually scalable. View full review »

We haven't really scaled it across. While we do have it in our production environment, we haven't applied it across the whole infrastructure. We are at a point where we are working on that. View full review »

It can definitely scale, from a smaller company like ours, all the way up to a large company like VMware, Dell EMC. It works great either way. View full review »
