Overall Satisfaction with VMware vCenter Server

It was used by a few departments across the organization for management, organization, and load balancing of VMs in our data center. Apart from the IT team, it was used by a few power users of different teams for their VMs. It solved the issue of managing VMs at scale.


  • Good UI.
  • Mostly intuitive to navigate.
  • Aggregates info from multiple vSphere servers into one.
  • Allows easy management and snapshot of VMs.


  • Updating was not the most intuitive.
  • The HTML5 version was released and did not have all of the features that the Adobe Flash version did in the past.
  • Some things were very easy and intuitive while some decisions just didn't make much sense.
  • VM Management.
  • Load balancing.
  • Made it easier to start virtualizing the environment.
  • Made deployment and backups or snapshots of VMs quicker than with just vSphere.

If you use more than one vSphere deployment, vCenter is awesome for having everything in one console and not having to hop between web servers to manage different VMs that may be on different bare metal. If you work in a data center environment that runs VMWare, you very likely run this software.
