Overall Satisfaction with VMware ESXi

90% of our workloads run on top of a VMware Hypervisor. We currently have over 450 host and 4500 VM's.
  • Cost effective utilization of compute.
  • Ability to move workloads around easily.
  • Automated and scripted deployments of VMs.
  • Some of the reporting tools are difficult to use and [I] would love to see more pre-canned options in the VRealize suite.
  • Would love to see the ability to have redundant Vcenters.
  • Would like to see them move a little quicker with the private cloud options.
  • Higher density lower cost
  • Hardware Felxibility
  • Savings on KVA's
VMware is much more advanced and has set the standard for the industry to follow. We did not see nearly the same amount of buggy behavior out of VMware as we did with these other products. VMware is what these other products are trying to be.
