"I like Intersight because of the integration with HashiCorp, Kubernetes, and each cloud because Intersight is the IO module."
"Scalable portfolio of services for remote device management, with good cloud integration. It's also easy to set up."
"The product has good integration."
"The performance for monitoring the VM is very good. Additionally, the solution is flexible."
"The most valuable features of VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) are capacity and performance management."
"The most valuable features are the alerts and dashboard, and that the product is simple to use, configure, and upgrade."
"The monitoring and verification functionalities were the most useful features."
"Our business is built around testing, measurement, and performance measurement and vROps is the primary tool. We use it in a VMware environment and we do tests in other environments. But in the VMware environment, vROps and the associated products, Log Insight and Network Insight are the primary tools that we use. It's a basic tool. It's very important for our organization."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to check the right-sizing of a machine because that way I can assign the real resources that are needed."
"Can be customized according to customer requirements."
"The dashboards are really good. They give you a glimpse of what is really going on in your virtualized environment. The ability to create customized dashboards based on your needs is also great."
"Cisco Intersight needs some improvement in terms of stability. Hybrid cloud management and proper hyperscaler tie-up are other areas for improvement."
"The unique problem with Cisco Intersight is that it's not supporting some players."
"When new features are added, the service becomes full of bugs."
"An area for improvement would be application-level monitoring."
"They need to improve the capacity and infrastructure planning side of things. Also, I would like to see them integrate more stuff, with more detailed monitoring and different cloud providers."
"Lately, the chargeback site has improved, but it could be simpler. You need to create your own dashboards. It should be simple to get a virtual machine and break down the compute and storage costs."
"For me, the technical support is the biggest problem. I've been working with them since 2016 and in the first years their response was faster than it is today. That is a problem. Also, I need to put together and send them a lot of information. And then I wait one day, two days. The support has been getting worse over the last few years. They need to improve it."
"VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) can improve the Layer 3 hypervisor VM infrastructure because we do not manage other applications. We need a package, which is too expensive. We would like to manage native VMware applications, VMware native components, hypervisor, and storage, such as vSAN."
"VMware vRealize Operations (vROps) should improve instant monitoring. Currently, the monitoring is on an interval of five to ten minutes, if I want to know what is happening now I cannot."
"We integrated vROps with vRealize Log Insight, but it was not helpful to me. It was not giving me any good data."
"There is room for improvement when it comes to the integration with Active Directory. Sometimes I need to log in to the application using my Active Directory account, instead of using the regular admin for vRealize Operations. If I want to deploy this tool to more users, I need that."
Cisco Intersight is Cisco’s systems management platform that delivers intuitive computing through cloud-powered intelligence. This platform offers a more intelligent level of management that enables IT organizations to analyze, simplify, and automate their environments in ways that were not possible with prior generations of tools. This capability empowers organizations to achieve significant savings in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and to deliver applications faster, so they can support new business initiates. The advantages of the model-based management of the Cisco UCS platform plus Cisco Intersight are extended to Cisco UCS servers and Cisco HyperFlex and Cisco HyperFlex Edge systems. Cisco HyperFlex Edge is optimized for remote sites, branch offices, and edge environments.
VMware VRealize Operations (vROps) is a trusted, proven software solution that comes as a virtual device created to assist IT managers and administrators with the necessary tools to properly manage operational processes across virtual, physical, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud environments. vROps can be easily deployed via your management cluster, or, depending on your unique ecosystem, it can be installed in several different customizable ways - whichever works best for your organizational environment.
vROps is effective in vSpere, Amazon Web Service (AWS), and Hyper-V. vROps is an amalgamated operations product that provides constant workflow execution while maintaining the highest levels of productivity and profitability. vROps will gather data from your ecosystem and will alert you to any issues, make repair recommendations, initiate pre-set protocol policies, and will accelerate operational efficiency and productivity.
VROps allows users to fully customize dashboards based on organizational needs. The dashboards are intuitive, informational, and give users a very precise visualization of what is happening in the virtualized environment. The Troubleshooting Workbench provides even greater insight and is very helpful in monitoring vSAN. vROps also offers a Forecast Feature that can be used to minimize potential issues and reduce the threat of downtime due to overused resources. VROps is designed to ensure that organizations can manage resources better and improve the overall performance of data center workflows.
