We currently use VMWare on IBM cloud for our VDI deployments. The Virtual Desktop Infrastructure centralizes our support to a single pane of glass. Basically, rather than using many control systems, we can use a single interface to deploy all of our features.
  • Easy deployment
  • Easy support
  • Simple pricing model
  • More marketing capabilities
VMWare vSphere on IBM cloud is best utilized for for global companies where your data lives in multiple locations.

VMware vSphere on IBM cloud is used in my department. It currently helps us address [being able to] connect different cloud providers as a service. The business problem it address is that the individuals can use IBM Cloud as well as AWS and use Zadara from it.
  • Ease of use - we don't want to spend extra hours trying to figure out a problem
  • Easy Setup - onboarding was simple and quick
  • Great documentation - Most of the answers to our questions are very easily accessible without additional help
  • Time latency
  • Support could be better
  • Price is high
I believe IBM Cloud is well suited for individuals who know their product but not so much for cloud strategy. IBM helps us accelerate and plan the cloud journey and allows us to scale. I wouldn't recommend the IBM Cloud if you know how to scale and distribute the servers world wide.

vSphere on IBM cloud is being utilized to host and manage a sub section of VMs utilized for specific internal applications. It is being used only by the IT department, and it allows us to focus more on the applications themselves rather than worrying about the physical infrastructure for these critical apps.
  • The performance is top notch. Our on-prem environment was always suffering from lag and general sluggishness. With IBM running everything, it's much smoother.
  • It's always up to date. Our previous environment was always lacking the latest updates and security features. Our audit department enjoys having the peace of mind that everything is up to date.
  • They handle the security of the environment. It allows our security team to focus on higher priority issues. They dont have to worry about making sure our systems are secured.
  • I wish it were a bit easier to manage user access.
  • The initial configuration process could be a bit more streamlined.
Scenarios where VMware vSphere on IBM Cloud is well suited for any companies that don't want to have to worry about the physical side of everything. If you are already looking to virtualization, then why not get rid of the physical infrastructure running the vSphere portion as well. A less appropriate scenario would be in the case of our SCADA systems. Due to the nature of these systems, we still prefer to keep the management and vSphere on prem.

It is used by IT departments to manage their virtual servers and not throughout all of the organization. It allows IT departments to manage and reboot the devices that they are responsible for without having to contact the server team. It also allows the server team to have a centralized area to manage all devices.
  • You architect your own solution.
  • Start a new cluster as small as one ESXi server or scale an existing cluster.
  • The web interface component could use some work. Particularly, performance in multiple browsers.
It is well suited for centralization, virtualization, and as a management platform.
