Overall Satisfaction with VMware ESXi

VMware ESXi is being used as an important part of our virtual infrastructure. We are running VMware ESXi as our core hypervisor to host virtual machines and run the entire on-prem infrastructure on it. It provides us with a range of features that are more than enough for keeping the infra stable and available at most. I am a VMware Consultant in the organization and responsible for the implementation and management of VMware products.
  • Hardware Virtualization.
  • Supports multiple OEMs.
  • Can be aligned with other important infrastructure tools.
  • Single host management should be improved.
  • One-click SSL certificate renewal from custom location cannot be done.
  • Host isolation management can be improved.
  • Saved a lot of hardware cost.
  • Highly scalable if we need to expand our infrastructure.
  • Integrated it with other VMware and Non-VMware tools to maintain efficiency and redundancy.
Easy to manage, standard licenses and bundle licenses are customizable, provides a much more stable infrastructure.
Cost-effective, Comes with special features like HA, DRS, FT.

Citrix Hypervisor (formerly XenServer), vSphere, vRealize & vcloud Suite
One of the best hypervisors available among other competitors. Compared to others, resource pools of VMware ESXi are much more stable. It is saving a lot of hardware costs as we don't have to use multiple server hardware for different applications. Sometimes less appropriate when we require auditing of logs and integration with AD audit tools.
