Infrastructure Architect at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
Sep 28 2016

What is most valuable?

Right now, we’re primarily just using it for monitoring. However, based on a VMworld session I attended, we’re looking at using it for enhancing our efficiency and to guarantee performance; make sure we can use vROps recommendations to... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We’d recently done a business transformation. We’re in healthcare. We deliver software-as-a-service for the province of Saskatchewan. Recently, we’ve expanded our business to infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service, those kinds... more»

What needs improvement?

I’d like to see the ability to monitor more stuff we’re actually looking at vROps to pull in data from. I guess there is already a lot of stuff it can capture, but I’m actually pushing to use vROps as our managers’ manager. I’d like to pull... more»

What is most valuable?

The product is valuable - when we start virtualizing everything, specifically in the compute stack – for looking at the health of the ecosystem. It is very difficult to pinpoint your challenges in terms of performance. It also helps... more»

How has it helped my organization?

For example, we can actually proactively monitor and anticipate server sprawl, or capacity depletion. We can actually see that coming before it arrives. We can head off issues such as saturation of resources in any particular host, aberrant... more»

What needs improvement?

One of the things about vROps is that, it's very robust. If you want to set up a notification, it's very, to me, involved. If they can streamline some of that through orchestration into what you’re trying to do with setting up alerts and... more»

Converged Infrastructure Lead at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Sep 28 2016

What is most valuable?

One of the things I really liked was being able to use the projects feature, which lets me say that I know in August or September or October, I'm going to need to deploy 20 more VMs on a particular cluster. Am I going to have the capacity for... more»

How has it helped my organization?

I've been at my company for seven months, and there's no monitoring. They have no monitoring. That's going to be the big thing. Dashboards can be set in front of operational people and then we'll actually be able to respond both proactively... more»

What needs improvement?

It is a beast to deal with. To understand it, really takes effort. Several of us have been to a week of VMware classes, and that didn't even scratch the surface. There's so much there. I suppose if there was a nice get-started guide, that’d... more»

What is most valuable?

Currently, the most valuable features of the product are monitoring, capacity management and planning; things of that nature. We run a SCCM and SCOM. We took all of that and piped it in the back-end. That took a good amount of time; a couple... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The benefits for us, because we're mostly virtualized, it's getting everything under one hood. That's probably the biggest thing for us. It has most definitely helped us avoid outages or shortened outage time. I think that with forecasting... more»

What needs improvement?

We'd like to see more customizable things, more management packs; the ability to not have to customize the portals and do everything so ad-hoc. If they built more frames and shells into it so that you could deploy things easier and get it... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is being able to see what's actually going on, down to the VMware storage level. And the fact that it can give you a suggested change and it'll explain why. The most common thing we see is that we've got too many... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Probably the most common benefit is catching problems. It has a view where it shows you a hot spot that starts turning red and you're see there's an issue. It also shows trends, so you can see how long it has been going on and other things... more»

What needs improvement?

Even though we don't have the full license for the full vRealize automation and some automation is already built in, I’d like to see them expand that and make it a little easier to use. Also, it is very CPU intensive. It's hitting the... more»
