If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering vRealize Log Insight, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I personally am not actively using the solution for searching for logs or creating log analysis. I'm just using it for a few needs here and there when we have some requirements. It depends on a company's use cases, but I would advise that if they've got the infrastructure and it is all based on VMware, they should use Log Insight despite the price. I personally have more preference for the open-source tools but because of the price, also. However, Log Insight is quite good and very useful. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. It's a good product, but it has room for improvement and could improve upon the pricing.
We use the on-premises deployment model. We're resellers of the solution. I'd rate it eight out of ten.
I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
I would rate this product an eight out of 10.
We use the on-premises deployment model. We're also platinum partners. In terms of advice to others, if they're looking for a basic VMware solution, it's okay. We've tried other options. Log Insight seems to be better than other solutions in terms of very good integrations and working out items to be able to log. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. All of our must-haves are available in this product.
We are system integrators so we don't use this solution completely, we use the applications or services fully, we just make sure to go through the features and do our best to use them, and then we sell them. There may be some aspects that VMware needs to improve on, but we haven't used all of the features so it is difficult to know all that needs to be improved. We try to understand how it works, and the dynamics of the solution to sell it. It provides multiple platforms, you can use a Windows Operating System, you can Mac, and you can use Linux on a particular server. It allows us to do virtualization with different operating system platforms. I like that about this solution. I have not worked with all of the features, but I can say that this product provides most of the capabilities that customers need. It's easy to set up. I would recommend this solution. If you give a solution a ten out of ten there is nothing to be improved upon. There is always room for improvement as there are always upgrades. I cannot give a ten when I know there are things to improve. Technology is evolving and the world is going virtual, so they need to step up their game. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
We use the private cloud deployment model. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. I'd rate it higher, but the implementation is very hard. I would recommend the solution to others. They will save money is they use it. It's also good for maintaining the hardware.
I would rate this solution an eight of ten.
We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
I would rate the solution six or seven out of ten. It's very easy to use, but at the same time it has some limitations. You have to consider that if you decide to try out the solution.
