Deployment

The deployment process was surprisingly easy. In the early versions of HyperFlex, the deployment tool had some issues, but it's much better now. Even using Intersight to do the deployment is quite simple. I was able to get a cluster from being in boxes to fully online in under a day.

Simplified management is just that, simple. Upgrade processes that used to take an entire weekend can now be kicked off and left to run. Sure, I'm still going to keep an eye on it just to make sure things go to plan. I just don't need to continually interact with it to complete the process.

I can't comment on this in too much detail, as I used it working for a reseller. However, most of the day-to-day administration is done through the vSphere client, meaning that it's pretty transparent to VMware admins. I can't speak to the Hyper-V integration, as I haven't used that myself.
