Overall Satisfaction with vSphere

vSphere is used across the whole organization for managing our virtual environment. Specifically we have two esxi hosts, one in each office location, with redundant data storage. What VSphere brings to the environment is the ability to add Virtual TPM encryption to our Windows servers. It would be nice if the built in KMS support applied to the Vcenter standard kit instead of just the plus kit.
  • Central management
  • Adds Virtual TPM support to the VMWare environment
  • Ease of virtual server access
  • Built in KMS server could be available to the VSphere Standard kit users.
  • Virtual Machines with hardware tied to the VM cant be backed up because of snapshots.
  • Regular video cards are not supported in esxi and special hardware must be used instead.
  • vSphere has eased the process of data at rest security.
  • vSphere has made centralized management a reality over trying to manage separate ESXi hosts in each location.
  • There have been no negative impacts.

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


Are you happy with VMware vSphere's feature set?


Did VMware vSphere live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of VMware vSphere go as expected?


Would you buy VMware vSphere again?


vSphere is well suited for multiple VMWare hosts and can be very useful in larger enterprises where vMotion is used to load balance and failover running virtual machines. In smaller businesses with one or two hosts then the features can be overkill. The addition of virtual TPM support is a very nice addition to provide vm security in a more Microsoft supported methodology.
