Overall Satisfaction with vSphere

Using Vsphere for the following purposes:
  • Centralized management platform for Virtual Machines for multiple departments.
  • Manages Esxi hosts and vCenter server.
  • Hosting multiple servers to use them to create Virtual Machines.
  • Segment-wise VM distribution for different team members.
  • As a data center backup and disaster recovery.
  • Also using it as a private cloud infrastructure.
  • Centralized management server to take care of Virtual Machines.
  • Easy to add and remove a virtual machine.
  • Detailed workflow for creating new VM(s) and removing older one.
  • Sometimes IP addresses for VM aren't displayed in the UI panel for VM even though generated.
  • No progress on stats on VM turning on.
  • Limited ability to keep maximum capacity for a single VM in VMware vSphere.
  • Increased performance.
  • Reduced intra team dependency for test machines.
  • Low budget and cost effective.
As a user, I haven't reached out to support ever as the product has always been up with close to no downtime. Few bugs here and there, still exist like IP not available for VM along with other details in VM GUI section and GUI being not user friendly that is nonresponsive web design.

  • Multiple storage category integrations are allowed like datastore, ISO, SSD, etc.
  • User account creation is quite simple and quick.
Well suited cases :
  • Small businesses using VMware vSphere essential kits.
  • Meets demands of high-performance application and memory-intensive databases.

Less optimal scenarios:
  • When you need a single VM in vSphere to be extremely resource-intensive.
