Overall Satisfaction with VMware Skyline

We used VMware Skyline for getting automatic support for our environment from the VMware support team. It automatically generates the logs and support bundle and sends them to the support team for analysis and resolution of the potential issues of the Virtualization environment. The time of troubleshooting of the issue by the VMware support team is decreased as it proactively does the Job.
  • Health check reporting
  • Logs and support bundle collection
  • Proactive identification of the problem
  • Problematic for customers who have a secure environment and no direct internet connection.
  • Hardware logs are not collected completely.
  • It should also be included in standard licenses.
  • Easy Deployment from OVF
  • Proactive detection
  • Compatibility check for third part tools.
  • Less time in troubleshooting
  • Less resources required
  • Minimise the unexpected failures and downtimes.
  • SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager (NCM)
The compatibility with VMware products and the automatic log generation and support buddle sharing with VMware support team feature is unmatched. It is very efficient in proactive avoidance of major issues and it involves an engineering team from VMware support for resolutions. It is capable of generating logs seamlessly without any interruption in the production environment and provide detailed Health reports.

Do you think VMware Skyline delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with VMware Skyline's feature set?

Yes

Did VMware Skyline live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of VMware Skyline go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy VMware Skyline again?

Yes

It is best suited for customers having premier support services and looking for faster remediation. The VCenter server and VSAN environment are covered in the VMware Skyline. The environments which are critical and run very secure applications and do not have access to internet connection on the Virtualization environment can not use the VMware skyline as it is unable to send the logs automatically to the VMware support team.
