We use it to deploy different customers on to a single platform. We manage the hardware from the top foundation. We look at the logs and we position the networks.
Our primary use case is for auto-scaling and automation of VM created automation with some governance and policies.
We were working with versions 5, 5.5, 6, then upgraded to 6.7.
We are service providers and therefore we only sell this program to our customers. So we don't use it ourselves. Our customers use it for all kinds of purposes like VDI environments, private clouds, connection to public clouds, office automation purposes and applications running on top of this. They use it to consolidate their environment of servers and it provides them a migration path towards cloud environment or private cloud environments.
We are a system integrator and this is one of the solutions that we provide to our clients. The primary use of this solution is data center consolidation. This solution gives you the option to have a second copy of your data center for disaster recovery. For VMware, you can achieve asynchronous replication, which means that you have active and passive replication between two sites. Active means that the production is up, but the disaster recovery is read-only. When you bring up the mirror, the other site becomes active and the production site becomes read-only.
We use the product for servicing infrastructure and as a platform for various databases.
