My experience virtualizing productivity environment for the growth of services

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: The opportunity to share my experience with the use of VMwaresVphere is generous because I can help other users with my recommendation or other potential clients who wish to implement a virtualized environment

Vorteile:

I have worked for a few years in virtualization, using virtual environments completely or mixed environments, virtual - physical, and MWware vSphere has shown me to be a hypervisor, taking full advantage of the processing capacity of each host, so taking advantage of the centralized administration that is achieved through VMware Vcenter, the large number of configurations of networks and virtual networks give an additional value to product. Likewise the use of multiple operating systems allows me to have a server farm with a variety of services to our customers to meet their needs 100%. Actually working VMware vSphere together with VMware vCenter is the greatest benefit cost advantage, since we have significant savings in terms of equipment maintenance, licensing, space saving, energy savings and man hours dedicated to supervising a physical environment as such.

Nachteile:

The daily work of the vSphere tool has helped me to know it and not only know its advantages and benefits but also its few weak points, however its greatest weakness may be its high cost, which for implementations in small business environments can be very difficult. of implementing since a technological infrastructure of process of a great capacity is required and the cost in the licensing would affect in an important way the cash flow, and it would be underutilized. Without the integration of VMware Vcenter 100% all the benefits of VMware vSphere would not be used. Equally, the training of the staff would also have a huge cost, even though the training by the technical staff is excellent, there is also the virtual training that gives the advantage of cost savings, however it is not as effective as in person.

Vmware Vsphere

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: It's cost-effective - pay as use concept if no need stop your services and get free from billings Space Effective - physical to virtual conversation helps you to save your infra space which is not possible in case of physical deployment Why Vsphere - it a product of a leading virtualization vendor.

Vorteile:

Vsphere - Vcenter is the platform where you can create configure and customize the virtual machines as per the customer requirement Vsphere allows you to synchronize with multiple host/nodes, which helps you run the features of high availability smart server deployment. Vsphere has various products which help every smaller multinational organization to manage their cloud infrastructures. Vpshere allows you the features which highly recommended and essential to smoothly run any organization. Vsphere is the product of Vmware and the vendor is running in the top list of virtualization providers Features of Vsphere High Availability - Providing the high SLA Distributor resource scheduler - smart deployment of servers Distributor power management - save you cost Fault Tolerance - Zero downtime Wow that you rarely get with any other virtualization platform.

Nachteile:

Vsphere should be licensed purchased it's not allowed you to run the infra after 30 days of trial. There are various packages available for their products, so small-level organizations are supposed to run all features they have to pay the cost of the required product. Should require stronger connectivity to access your Vsphere smoothly.

Bring back the thick client for Windows

3,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: They tried to make it more convenient by forcing everyone to the web version, but they did it too soon. Too slow, buggy, and reliant on old technology. They should have waited until the HTML5 version was fully ready and rolled it out then.

Vorteile:

With esx 6+ you are forced to the web version of vsphere. This does have its conveniences (when it works), and for the most part contains everything in the older thick software client. Managing and access VM's is similar. Installing updates is arguably easier, and vcenter management seems to be more feature filled.

Nachteile:

Where do I start .... first of all, you need to have flash installed and allowed to get the full feature set on the browser. The HTML5 version is great when it works, but very buggy. Also, it is not nearly as responsive as the old software client. For the remote console, you need to install a plugin and software to get that working properly.

Manage big virtual environment!

5,0 vor 4 Monaten

Kommentare: I enjoy using vSphere every day to connect to my virtual environment. This makes my job easier when testing application security because I can run tests on multiple machines and in multiple configurations at the same time.

Vorteile:

I really like the reliability of vSphere. It's hard for me to remember situations when I had a problem connecting to the virtual environment or when it was unstable. Working with virtual machines and their configuration is very simple. Restoring machines to their initial state or reconfiguring them takes little time and you can focus on their effective use.

Nachteile:

If I were to change something in vSphere it would be the User Interface UI. Unfortunately, tab navigation and menus are not well designed and require some getting used to. Better interface planning could improve productivity and user satisfaction.

VMware VSphere: A Virtualization Server for Private Clouds

4,0 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: It was great working with VSphere to simplify the management and deployment of clients. By employing it all the VM creation, deployment, and processing is done on the server side and all the client is responsible of is providing the VM display more or less.

Vorteile:

I deployed VSphere in my networking class to provide the students with managed VMs containing common software packages and tools. VSphere was up to the challenge using a commodity Dell Intel server with 64 GB RAM. It provided virtualization support to 22 VSphere clients. The clients merely provided the VM display and all the processing is done on the server side. The control center for managing the virtual machines is extremely simple to use and the migration (using VMware VMotion) is also seamless. The next step for us is to start testing network virtualization using the VMware NSX server.

Nachteile:

The client software hangs and lags unexpectedly. As a developer, I sense that the VSphere client could be better enhanced in terms of performance as well as in the look and feel.

Big changes on new Vsphere 6.7

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Have been on the technology field for over a decade by now working with a lot of different virtualization technologies, by far this is one of the most reliable and easy to use out there.
Have seem some weird issues with another virtualization technologies but vsphere always had a lot of redundancy to prevent the production going down once you have configured it correctly.

Vorteile:

- Stylish new look. - Better performance than previous versions. - Lots of support for security bridges not supported on previous version and hardware compatibility with new products and software.

Nachteile:

- User interface is annoying sometimes. Mostly this is one of the huge concerns for me on this new version, If i want to see the running task there are a lot of widget on the screen and need to zoom out the view to see some of the running task, or the alerts, then zoom in to read it correctly and zoom it out to see them again, is a little annoying for me but well it works... For anything else is pretty good.

Works well for large organizations, a bit costly for smaller companies

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I've been using it for over 9 years now, started with version 4.0 and have gotten good exposure to all versions up to and including 6.7.

Vorteile:

Ease of use, the functionality. The ability to add more API's as well as creating different levels of administration. IE Helpdesk, user, administrator etc. Helpdesk is very helpful and work with you till there is an actual resolution to the problem.

Nachteile:

The cost. Compatibility with some of the older hardware (specifically Dell R810). Almost impossible to get support for any version less than 6.0.

Vmware - The Virtualization Standard

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: VMWare... If you are virtualization, you've heard of VMware. The free options were a great way to get started, do some basic virtualization for those "silly" services that require a dedicated, standalone machine. Shrink 5 physical servers into one in no time. Then you want more big servers to do more. So you buy into VMware (at substantial expense), licenses lapse, or are difficult to renew (yes this happened, because the VARs couldn't process it right... nice huh? VMware was even involved and couldn't get it quite right). Soon you'll be all-in with VMware, modifying your hardware to meet current version requirements, nickle and diming your datacenter to keep costs low, when security budgets are the focus. You'll find yourself needing to do an upgrade to the VSphere, but not wanting downtime to do it, so you have to buy up to move it to another server in realtime, just to do updates. It gets a little silly. But, let's face it, nothing else comes close. I want VMware to have competition, but nothing else even touches it. HyperV? No. Anything else? Yeaup, there's a few opensource options, but it just cannot compete. VMware vSphere, when you need to virtualize something more than an old video game, it's pretty much where you have to be.

Vorteile:

VMware is what you NEED in Virtualization. It has differing feature sets (licensed), based upon your needs. It has an easy barrier of entry for those just getting their feet wet, and has powerful features that are nearly unmatched. If you have servers, if you have a datacenter, if you are in charge of "Stand Alone" applications, you are likely dealing with VMware, and there is a good reason for that. VMware works, and it works well.

Nachteile:

Not that VMware is not without flaws. The software works, but for some of us semi-whitebox server builders, we are forced to stay close to the hardware qualified lists. Or pay a premium for a pre-built machine that we pay even more in "maintenance." VMwares license tiers make it challenging to reach the more expensive, an often necessary options. VMware's partnerships with VARs are more important that with you as the customer. Expect to be treated that way, as VARs gobble up a large amount of costs, as quotes runaway from you. Just be prepared, VMware solutions do not come cheap. It's the best, and VMware knows it.

Cloud magic wand

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: When comes to server virtulazation vSphere is the best hypervisor solution and so easy to manage and consolidate your servers all in one place.

Vorteile:

When comes to setting up new servers or managing multi servers then vSphere is the magic wand to that time consuming process. You don't have to deal with finding space on a server rack or running around with cables doing network configuration. What I love the most is it's ability to have a server up and running within few minutes and also not worry which environment it will be running on. Having to run a lot of virtual servers in the cloud also reduce energy consumption of a datacenter and in case of power outage its easy to have everything back online even with a small generator or ups system.

Nachteile:

As technology is constantly moving so is the vSphere and then comes the dilemma that you cant click an upgrade button and have everything updated and without losing your configuration. Also when comes to physical hardware failure, you have greater chance of losing all your sever since everything will be one container so you will also need to have some form or redundancy or backup servers or mirror server which then sort of defeats the whole point of having less hardware requirements.

Data center virtualization from the industry leader

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We are 90+ percent virtualized on vSphere, and like many others, it is a game changer and huge money saver. With vSphere using vCenter, we manage our entire virtualized enterprise in a single pane of glass. We use it to provision compute and storage resources, monitor performance, get alerts, and manage VM DR.

Vorteile:

vSphere lets us virtualize nearly any Windows and Linux operating system we want, with a few exceptions such as AIX and Solaris, and manage virtualized resources across our enterprise spanning multiple data centers. It has multiple plugins for the storage we use (Dell EMC VxFlex, VMAX, etc). It is very widely adopted, so help is easy to find on the web.

Nachteile:

I don't have any significant complaint about the software itself, but VMWare support isn't as good as it should be, especially given its size. Since VMWare is integrated with lots of different OS's and storage, there seems to be a lot of finger pointing when we engage support, and it's hard to finally get to a competent support engineer. I will concede that when we call support, it is nearly always a complex issue.

They're the market leader for a reason, but so many features means complicated UX

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

Every feature an hypervisor can offer - widest feature set and ecosystem to deliver the most comprehensive solution. They scale very well across all parameters: Cluster size, datastore size, VM count, fault tolerance at scale Etc. Their VSAN is great for ROBO deployments, as you get a single pane of glass for all layers (compute, network, storage) HA / DRS / VSMC are all excellent tools for improving availability of the applications that drive the business.

Nachteile:

Every feature means a complicated GUI, with way too many nobs to turn for a small deployment. They VSAN scales poorly in terms of ROI, as more often than not you need the All-Flash VSAN, which after 2-3 copies of the data yields low capacity at double or triple the cost of the (already expensive) Flash Media. Replication is nice but again limited in scale, works great in getting data off the ROBOs to the main datacenter but not scalable enough as a DR solution

Good product for virtualizations, no matter what OS you need to deploy.

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: -One of the best environments to manage virtual machines.

Vorteile:

-Stability for server environments, most of my client's resources are working with vSphere without issues. The most important thing to do is don´t forget best practices tips for the first deployment. -New interface with HTML5 it´s for me the best upgrade from the last years, no more issues trying to manage environments from Linux or MAC. -HA options and configuration works with single clicks, making easier for none IT guys. -Optimize budget for hardware and energy expenses, making easy upgrades and migrations.

Nachteile:

-Need an experienced partner to deploy it on business with more than 100 servers. This is important for newer users because partner services are very expensive, making professional services more than a half of the budget. -Old users need to adapt his knowledge to the new interface without the appropriate documentation. -The user guide is not very useful for new users, need more details and explain those tips that are not available on the web interface. -The mobile app is the worst feature on VMware, a year ago was the last time I tried to do something there. Until they get his effort on his apps don't spend any time on this.

vSphere

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: We went virtual in 2007 using vSphere and have never looked back. vSphere is the backbone of our datacenter environments and has allowed us to provide resources for application owners as well as integrate with products like VMWare Site Recovery Manager, so we can protect our data across multiple datacenters. It is a fantastic product.

Vorteile:

When managed via vCenter, distributing virtual machines amongst distributed resources is about the most powerful aspect of this product. It allows administrators to maximize value from hardware purchases and create internal redundancies and high availability.

Nachteile:

vSphere 7 introduced a new strategy in the use of the host boot disk to the point that certain types of boot disks were burning out and causing host servers to crash. VMWare now forcing customers to buy new hardware for existing hosts in order to avoid downtime.

Easy & Simplistic to use, yet full of features that make management of virtual machines easy

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

Ease of access to manage virtual machines. vSphere allows for you to easily manage your entire Virtual Infrastructure, from the Data Storage used to house the VMs to the creation and management of the Virtual Machines themselves. Clone, Deploy, and Configure multiple VMs within minutes... You can stand up an entire infrastructure composed of virtual machines within a short time (depending on available resources) using vSphere

Nachteile:

There can be a slight learning curve for anyone who has not managed a virtual environment. VMware vSphere has numerous functions, features, and capabilities and it can at times seem overwhelming; however, VMware provides great articles and knowledge bases to help even the most novice administrator become a vSphere power user.

the leading virtualization platform on the market since more than a decade. A must

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: state of the art datacenter automation, virtualization, infrastructure management

Vorteile:

vsphere is the private-cloud datacenter operating system of choice, market leader, full packed of features and with an impressive ecosystem of third party products which integrate fully with it. Since more than a decade, vsphere has brought virtualization into almost every shop on earth and changed the way the IT departments administer their infrastructure, making it way more flexible, easier, faster and smarter.

Nachteile:

i have a hard time when thinking about something I dislike in vSphere. I think that the product can be pricey, depending on the licensing level chosen, and this is maybe the aspect I dislike the most, even if I honestly believe that it is worth its money.

VMWare vSphere - Managing your Virtual Environment One Click at a Time

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: VMWare vSphere has improved quite a lot in the last few versions, the latest version I am on right now (7.5) the HTML5 version of the web interface works very well and while it's missing features of the slow, Flash based web interface it can do everything I need day to day and does it quickly and fairly painlessly.

Vorteile:

I use this software a dozen times a day, and I think my favorite thing is that it's very easy to create snapshots and roll back to them if I break something. We have very little downtime thanks to snapshots.

Nachteile:

It's very complex to update. I cringe every time a support ticket leads to me having to update the environment. It's just a complex beast, requiring several different updates/files to be installed in a specific sequence, some of which can cause down time.

vSphere makes managing virtual infrastructure so easy!

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

- Simple and easy to use interface - Very powerful. Comes equipped with tons of features - Entire virtual infrastructure ranging from configuring and deploying VMs can be done quickly (depending on the skill level) within minutes. - New HTML5 interface can be used to manage VMs from cell phones.

Nachteile:

- Contains so many features that it can be quite intimating even for an inexperienced professional to keep up with the latest releases. VMWare does provides ample of KBs and forums to address this, but many a times, answer is not readily available or it is very difficult to find from docs. This process can be very confusing. - Very expensive - Licensing model can be hard to understand.

VMware vSphere - The best option for IT people

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Pretty good.

Vorteile:

Virtualization is something that every IT resource must know, VMware provides you the ability to virtualize all your resources, create network adapters from scratch, and connect them all across. Is pretty easy to use, but of course you need to have some IT background because the program uses a lot of terminology related to the Infrastructure side.

Nachteile:

The bad thing is that to host this system, you need to allocate a lot of resources for this tool to work properly. If you have a lot of virtual machines running, the performance of each will be impacted directly if you are not hosting the VMware into a very good infra.

Flexible virtualization platform lets you consolidate your servers

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: We have consolidated our old hardware onto new, which means we have a higher density and uptime now. Our physical desktops are also virtual now, enabling our users to work from anywhere. Since everything is integrated, administration has become less time consuming than before.

Vorteile:

The software is very stable and allows us to consolidate physical servers, while making them more highly available. It can hosts virtual desktops and applications, that can be managed through a single management interface. The compatibility with applications is better than with any other virtualzation platform.

Nachteile:

Upgrades need to be carefully planned, because the underlying hardware may need a firmware update as well. This means dependencies. Luckily VMware has extensive documentation and compatibility matrices that help you to find out what to update first.
