Overall Satisfaction with vSphere

We use vSphere as our primary hypervisor. It supports all of our virtual servers, as well as handles our high availability and disaster recovery. It helps us get the most out of our hardware.

Pros

  • It allows us to get the most density out of our hardware.
  • It provides high availability/disaster recovery feature.
  • Allows for automation in provisioning new resources.

Cons

  • Expensive to get all the functionality.
  • Lets us deploy many virtual servers on a limited hardware footprint, saving money on hardware.
  • Lets us spin up new servers quickly and easily, saving time and resources.
Always quick to respond to critical issues, and the logging usually allows for a quick diagnosis.

vSphere is targetted at enterprises with solid IT budgets and large work loads. Its a harder sell for small shops that might be better off going with cloud providers.
