Overall Satisfaction with vSphere

We are using VMware vSphere to manage the enterprise virtual infrastructure which consists of ~300+ servers. We use it for visibility and for managing the host.
  • Infrastructure virtualization.
  • Resource pooling/scheduling and allocation based on the threshold limits/priorities.
  • Provide high availability and parallel processing.
  • Nothing specifically identified.
  • Increased operational efficiencies.
  • Consolidation physical servers which reduced downtime.
  • Increased productivity, compliance and security.
Over the past couple of years, I've contacted vSphere support services and the service was admirable, fast, and thorough.

Would you buy vSphere again?


When managed via vCenter, distributing virtual machines amongst distributed resources is the most powerful aspect of this product. It allows administrators to maximize value from hardware purchases and create internal redundancies and high availability.
The primary reason why we're leveraging vSphere is to consolidate our workloads and realize the other benefits that virtualization provides. For example, create HA or VM-level HA to facilitate DR. Essentially, we use vSphere for all of the reasons that people use a virtualization layer. Apart from having HA/DR capabilities - been able to vMotion servers (in real-time) to multiple other hosts (including different clusters/sites) which would act as easy management for backup and security.
