    Reviews from Real Users 

    Awais J., CTO/CEO at a tech services company, says, "The automation part is most valuable. Because it is a VMware product, the automation capabilities that come with vRA are pretty extensive. We can integrate and build a lot of features on top of it, which makes it extremely useful for us."

    Aravind N., IT Service Manager at Allianz, relates, “vRA helps automate deployment for developers. We do a lot of orchestration or customization within our environment so it will suit each of our customers. We have different business units that have their own templates. This solution has made it very simple for developers. In a way, a layman or NOC guy can deploy a VM. Once they are familiar with the offerings, they can just deploy it without knowing what is going on in the back-end.”
