Overall Satisfaction with VMware ESXi

We use VMware ESXi to run on on prem compute workloads. We use VMware across the board on our on prem footprint. VMware helps us keep our servers running dense and enables ease of server deployment, backup, recovery, and migrations. This keeps the business up and running with minimal downtime thanks to all the virtualization features.
  • This is the best product for on prem virtualization.
  • vMotions both storage and standard help us stay agile and helps us support our applications.
  • VMware can get complicated with all the add-on features.
  • Sometimes its hard to find a starting point between their other solutions.
  • It help us maximize our investment in compute resources
  • Enable us to quickly deploy new resources to meet business needs

If you are in the business of having a datacenter and purchasing your hardware. VMware is one of the best choices. It's the industry leader for server hardware.

However, if you're new to having servers and don't have a large footprint. Maybe a cloud native solution would be a better choice.
