Well suited to analyze DDoS attacks on my application. This helped me to gain visibility into the traffic. Enhanced reactive and proactive support, Privacy and Security, Dashboard view, Inventory, Proactive findings, Skyline log assist, Upgrade recommendations & Operational Summary Report (OSR).

VMware Skyline is an overview of your current VMware environment showing details ranging from EOL drivers and products to suggestions on improving security.
  • VMware Skyline showed me my end of life cisco drivers.
  • Skyline listed unsupported VMtools and listed the VMs using such versions.
  • Skyline listed out-of-date hardware compatibility versions and the VMs matching such versions.
  • Skyline users are assigned by the administrators. It would be nice if users could request accounts so approval is all that is needed.
VMware Skyline is free yet is priceless. Skyline gives you the health of your VMware products in a single pane. Here you not only get issues pointed out to you but the suggested solutions for each issue. Doesn't get better than this.
  • Skyline scans for security related issues.
  • Skyline points out out of date hardware drivers.
  • VMware Skyline has no cost except for the small footprint the appliance VM uses.
  • Zero cap cost, unlimited returns. WIN WIN!
I've used other products such as VMAN and such yet Skyline is different. This is not aimed at your virtual machine's internal usage but at the VMware / Hypervisor level. This looks and monitors at hardware drivers, VMtools versions, and VM hardware versions. If you have Horizon it will look at versions and current vs minimum driver versions.

It helps us keep track of vulnerabilities in our VMware environment. We use it for all of our VMware environments.
  • Scans for vulnerabilities.
  • Gives advice on how to resolve issues.
  • Upgrades automatically.
  • Sometimes the recommendations do not make sense.
  • Sometimes the advice is general, but not for us.
It's a free product that keeps you informed about issues in your environment. I think it's great!
  • Free
  • Automatic
  • Tons of ROI since it's free.
I'm not sure what to compare against since I'm not aware of any competing products.
