Overall Satisfaction with vSphere

It's used across the whole organization. In fact, we virtualized almost all our environment. It's cost-effective and the deployment is faster and more convenient.

Pros

  • Possibility to move load from servers using the vmotion across a VMWare Cluster
  • Possible to increase ressources live, for example add more RAM ou CPUs
  • Provisionning of new servers is really fast and easy

Cons

  • Licences of more advanced versions with more features are expensive
  • We reduced the number of physical servers, thus reducing the cost of support contract and reducing the time for supporting those servers.
Well suited when there's a lot of physical servers that need to be replaced. You can consolidate multiple physical servers onto 1 or 2 using VMWare.
