  • For many vendors we use for other products, they can provide a compatible VM template to deploy servers for their platform directly in the VMware environment. This saves a lot of support and cost dealing with these vendors.
  • The physical footprint of servers has shrunk a lot over the years in our data center. This has saved a great deal on power costs and the complexity of support. It has allowed the IT department as a whole to be more efficient and lean.
  • With the environment being virtual, scaling up the storage or compute resources to run the VMs is very easy to do on short notice. This happened during COVID as I'm sure it did for others. We had to ramp up remote options in our Horizon environment, and scaling up was as simple as shifting hosts from one environment to the other. This would not have been possible in a mostly physical environment.

  • Positively, it has saved us time in spinning up new servers for the different departments in our company. It is easy for us to spin up virtual machines with VMware ESXi and deploy applications at the drop of a hat.
  • Positively we are able to save space in our data closets as we no longer need to keep room for physical servers and workstations, allowing us to expand in other areas like networking equipment and physical backup solutions.
  • It has moved our business forward as we are able to migrate old servers and static workstations in the virtual environment allowing us to easily keep an eye on older applications and update/backup easily through VMware ESXi management console.

  • ESXi is definitely a good investment at a nominal price.
  • Finding an application at low costs does makes a good business.
  • This would be a good recommendation for other business users.

  • VMware ESXi platform was the technology that allowed our organization to pivot from onsite to work-from-home in a matter of days during the pandemic. The college was physically closed with short notice, but operations and classes continued due to the VMware ESXi infrastructure and configuration already in place.
