We performed a comparison between CloudHealth and VMware Aria Operations based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Cloud Management solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The solution is useful for cloud transparency and visibility in reports and dashboards that I have generated, especially the pre-populated dashboards."
"The most valuable thing I have found is the cost saving recommendations"
"The pricing is rather competitive right now."
"It's stable. For report presentation, it's been fast."
"The solution is good for cloud cost management."
"The thing that CloudHealth does well is billing. It does really well on the billing part."
"Can be customized according to customer requirements."
"I like the fact that the performance is good and that it makes it easy to consolidate all your servers."
"The dashboards and the interface are very easy to understand, very lively, and very dynamic."
"One of the most valuable features is the ability to compare between AWS/Azure and the local cloud. When customers deploy something on the local cloud, with the same configuration that would apply to AWS or Azure, we can calculate the estimated cost difference between the local cloud and the public cloud. We do this kind of analysis for optimization and it is one of the best features of vROps."
"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."
"The most valuable feature is that everything is integrated for monitoring, performance, and troubleshooting."
"When there is an issue at the disk level in vSAN, vROps gives us an alarm that the issue is happening on particular disks. Other solutions cannot give this type of alert for vCenter. Even vCenter cannot give that type of information."
"VMware vROps' most valuable feature is that it integrates well with our VMware infrastructure, which is helpful for us because we can closely monitor our VMs and their performance."
"CloudHealth needs to start building out Turbonomics-types of features that help the customers who are using CloudHealth really understand everything down to the server level, the virtual machine level."
"The performance and accuracy of Cloud Health need to be improved."
"I would like to see better integration from CloudHealth to create easier setup and implementation."
"I think the dashboards could be improved."
"It would be helpful to have a mobile version or a tablet version, especially for people who are outside of the office."
"The Perspectives feature could be better."
"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."
"We integrated vROps with vRealize Log Insight, but it was not helpful to me. It was not giving me any good data."
"vROps is user-friendly, but configuration is a little bit hard. It is also hard if you want to customize it for your data center, especially without VMware training. The user interface should be improved so that a new user can easily configure it for his own use."
"For the initial setup, there should be some sort of auto discovery of the environment. That should be enabled. It has the ability to discover a main node, but it could still be made easier, to reduce the initial configuration and setup time."
"In the next release, vROps should add integration with Apache OpenStack."
"Technical support is normally good but there is sometimes a delay in their response."
"If I could integrate with vCenter with vROps, then I could execute more things by managing vSphere from within vROps. That would be great."
"In terms of what could be improved or added to VMware vRealize Operations (vROps), from my experience, it needs more work in the ITSM space because my company never used it as an IT service management tool."
CloudHealth provides hybrid cloud management software designed to help organizations increase their visibility across public and private cloud infrastructure. The CloudHealth platform helps IT teams manage resources and costs across cloud environments.
Key Features of CloudHealth
The main features of CloudHealth’s platform include:
Besides cloud management, CloudHealth delivers features to help with public cloud migration. For example, the platform enables you to calculate the total cost of ownership of a cloud deployment. You can identify which workloads you’ll move to the cloud first based on application dependencies.
There are several editions of the service:
Benefits of CloudHealth
You can report spending by cost center. This will drive financial accountability, thus lowering your cloud spending. It gives you visibility over who is using your cloud, with what device, and from where. It offers granular visibility into the public or hybrid cloud, monitoring cloud usage by line of business.
You can create custom policies to automate daily cloud operations. This reduces risk and accelerates decision-making. The granular visibility enables continuous monitoring of cloud usage and analysis of performance, resulting in more accurate capacity planning. It reduces risk and accelerates decision-making, identifying opportunities to increase cloud usage efficiency and reduce spending.
The CloudHealth platform improves resource utilization with custom rightsizing recommendations for your workloads. You can track performance and compare it with your provisioned capacity, thus optimizing your assets.
CloudHealth empowers your cloud’s security posture with real-time visibility. You can detect misconfigurations based on security rules and custom policies. The platform enables you to prioritize issues based on quantitative risk scores and gives you visual context to investigate and remediate issues quickly. CloudHealth continuously tracks compliance scores with real-time detection audits. There is automated reporting for frameworks such as SOC 2, HIPAA, GDPR, and PCI. CloudHealth integrates with SIEM systems to provide visibility for security operations teams. The system can ingest data from cloud-native threat feeds, raise immediate alerts, correlate threats, and investigate issues.
Reviews from Real Users
Lorna L., Product Manager at a comms service provider, says, "We are able to create an internal price of the product that we can then sell to clients. We get the cost plan at a good discount and then resell it with a mark up to our enterprise-level clients. This flexibility in pricing is one of the solution's best features."
"The thing that CloudHealth does well is billing,” adds Mike S., DevSecOps Engineer at Cloudstronaut LLC.
A Director Cloud Program & Platform Strategy at Zones, Inc states that "The solution is good for cloud cost management."
