10ZiG Technology

10Zig is well suited anywhere you would need multiple computer access within the same business without having PCs set up at each station. This is not just well suited for a business but for places like schools hospitals, etc. The virtual system replaces PCs which may have other features a user might want such as a disk drive.

Eco4Cloud Workload Consolidation

Eco4Cloud is well suited in VMware farms that have standard VM deployments, especially with small VMs, with nothing blocking vMotion and hardware fully compatible with IPMI 2.0 (minimum). It doesn't work well if many VMs are nodes in a Microsoft cluster because they would be unmovable and therefore their host would never be put in stand-by mode. If every host in the cluster has at least one guest VM that is a node of a Microsoft cluster, no host in the cluster will ever be put in stand-by mode.

Pros

10ZiG Technology

  • It has a much faster boot-up speed.
  • User-friendly.
  • Less to go wrong since it has no moving parts like a PC.
  • Easy to set up, use, and update.

Eco4Cloud Workload Consolidation

  • It consolidates workloads in VMware clusters using an algorithm that seems to work better than VMware DRS. It keeps headroom for workload peaks and to withstand the number of host failures set for the cluster in vCenter.
  • If the workload is very variable, Eco4Cloud will not continuously turn a host on and off but it will settle to keep the host running. It sort of "rightsizes" the cluster keeping only the right number of hosts running. This is another main difference when comparing Eco4Cloud with VMware DRS/DPM which strictly follows the workload and sometimes isn't fast enough in turning on the hosts when the workload is ramping-up.
  • To do a good job Eco4Cloud needs to analyze the hosts and the VMs. Therefore, the troubleshooting component of Eco4Cloud can figure out if there are problems in the configuration of the hosts (e.g. vMotion settings). It can also determine if a VM is stuck and can't vMotion (e.g. using the physical CD-ROM) or if it's oversized or undersized.
  • Something Eco4Cloud has and others don't is a technology named Smart Ballooning. With Smart Ballooning Eco4Cloud recovers unused RAM from the VMs and gives it back to the host way before the host goes over the 94% RAM threshold. This allows us to reach higher levels of overbooking.

Cons

10ZiG Technology

  • I have not had any issues. 10ZiG works as it should and does what it says it does.
  • I don't see any areas that need improvement.
  • It does what it does well.

Eco4Cloud Workload Consolidation

  • It would be useful to have a version that works with OpenStack.
  • It should be made compatible with VMware VSAN.
  • It would be useful to have a version that works with hybrid clouds using the new "vMotion anywhere" or share nothing vMotion feature.

Alternatives Considered

10ZiG Technology

The VMware has more issues as far as crashing due to overuse and other seemingly unknown issues. There is a lot more stability with the 10Zig. The Dell was slower as well as being less user-friendly and much harder to set up, use and upgrade. 10ZiG has had a lot fewer glitches thane either of the others I have tried.

Eco4Cloud Workload Consolidation

We compared the consolidation feature and we obtained exactly the same amount of servers in stand-by. The main difference was that Eco4Cloud turned off the unneeded hosts in 2 days while VMTurbo Operations Manager required one day per host. This behavior is caused by the different algorithms implemented by these two products. Compared to Eco4Cloud, VMware DRS/DPM was very aggressive (we tried it in vSphere 5.0). We haven't tested it with vSphere 6 yet.

Return on Investment

10ZiG Technology

  • Having 10ZiG units is less expensive than PCs.
  • Has increased productivity due to speed increased over PCs.
  • Power consumption is less for the 10ZiG.
Josh kimball | TrustRadius Reviewer

Eco4Cloud Workload Consolidation

  • Eco4Cloud causes a reduction in power consumption both on old VMware clusters and especially on new ones.
  • It also causes a delay in CapEx investments because you buy more hosts only when really needed.
