We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Provides multiple kinds of services for managing the clouds of multiple customers.""For the customers I work with, it provides flexibility as far as storage is concerned, so it's security and access.""The product is helpful for the management, optimization, and utilization of resources.""When I started using CloudSphere, it wasn't mature, and it had multiple issues. For example, my team experienced server issues while using the solution, but recently, I noticed how much CloudSphere has improved. There used to be some latency issues with CloudSphere. It even gave error messages in the past when you select an option such as "the web server is not responding", but it has improved a lot, and now I don't get any errors from CloudSphere. What I like best about CloudSphere is that it has a lot of beneficial features, and it has a single pane for managing multi-cloud environments, which I find very helpful, and it's the main benefit you can get from CloudSphere.""We do not need to install any appliances or any agents."

Cons
"The next feature I would like to have full disclosure of what's being done with the data.""The solution must have a single management console for the resources and VMs.""There are quite a number of services that can't be deployed using CloudSphere.""When we start the scanning of, for example, 500 servers, it will not handle the scan. We need to differentiate the jobs - for example, one job for 100 servers, a second job for another 100 servers, et cetera.""The main issue I experienced from CloudSphere was recently resolved, but an area for improvement in the solution is that it lacks the functionality of migrating resources from one public cloud to another. If CloudSphere could provide that functionality, that would be very beneficial to users and companies."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It depends on how that model will be used. It might be anywhere between $4 and $15 per license per month. It’s less expensive than other options."
