Overall Satisfaction with vSphere

We use vSphere to manage our virtual server and desktop infrastructure. We have had a push to visualize as many servers as possible. We decided to go with VMware vSphere and have no been disappointed. vSphere has offered us an entire platform of structure and flexibility from hypervisor host management to guest vm configuration. In addition to being an excellent virtual server management infrastructure, it is a great base to build VMware Horizon View on. Everything within vSphere is easy to understand, find, and manage.
  • Host Management
  • Guest Management
  • Streamlines Updates
  • Easy to configure and apply Security Technical Implementation Guidelines
  • Allow enable EVC without requiring host shutdown
  • More detail in recent tasks. Instead of just showing a task called "Reconfigure virtual machine" also have a link to more detailed information as to what was reconfigured, changed or removed.
  • Allow searching tasks or events
  • Productivity
  • Single pane of glass
  • Cost is high
I have never used another product like vSphere.
Any issue we have had was easily resolved by support. The support response time was amazing and got the issue resolved the first time which is huge, especially if/when the issue was critical in nature.

Do you think vSphere delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with vSphere's feature set?

Yes

Did vSphere live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of vSphere go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy vSphere again?

Yes

vSphere is the complete vmware package. If you are interested in becoming a vmware customer, vSphere makes the entire management platform nice to work with. The benefits of working with virtual machines is made possible by vSphere. I cannot think of any scenario where vSphere would not be a great solution for managing virtual servers.
