Pros
"Spring Cloud integrates well."

More Spring Cloud Pros →

"The solution is stable and reliable.""vCenter has some good user experience, and the initial setup is straightforward.""The stability and reliability are great.""My experience working with this solution has been good and I recommend it.""This is the best solution for management for the server administrator. VMware has been on the market for many years, so they have a lot of solutions. For on-premises, VMware is the best available solution.""The online configuration, especially in the latest version, is very good.""Configuration Manager simplifies management. Cloning via live migration is a useful feature.""vCenter Configuration Manager is a mature solution with high quality."

Cons
"If there's a dashboard like the ones provided by Apigee or Kong, that will be useful."

More Spring Cloud Cons →

"vCenter Configuration Manager could improve by having more integration.""There are some complexities within the system center. For example, we use two different applications for updates and the deployment of the machine. We also have another third party solution.""Configuration Manager's reporting could be better. I need to use a third-party reporting solution to get the details. They could add reporting features similar to RVTools.""The Self Service Interface is not very good and it needs improvement.""The VxRail configuration is very complicated and a little bit too difficult to guess what the final product is going to be.""Not very user friendly, too many configurations.""It would be better to integrate this infrastructure with native cloud environments, but we can't do it. We are trying to improve our experience by converting our infrastructure through virtualization on native cloud environments and workloads.""Error reporting should be more precise and descriptive, and there is no way to filter the logs. It would be helpful if its logs analysis can be more detailed, and the logs can be filtered."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Spring Cloud is an open-source solution."
  • More Spring Cloud Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Their licensing costs are high. But I think for the scale that we are using, it's suitable. If you use it on a larger scale with many servers, you have to pay a lot of money for them. I think it's suitable for organizations that don't need expert people that want more money each year or each month because it's a straightforward solution. We prefer to pay for these products that are integrated and straightforward."
  • "The price of the solution is expensive. However, it is reasonably priced compared to competitors."
  • "It is on a yearly basis."
  • "This product is not cheap. I have a yearly license for vCenter and the license is not cheap."
  • "The price of the solution is too expensive for us and we are looking to move to another solution."
  • "The solution comes with three-year support. We have to renew the support annually after the three years are up."

    Top Answer: 
    The pricing goes back to the configuration. Sometimes for weeks, to work, you need to buy your machines - and those are pretty reasonable.
    Top Answer: 
    There is always room for improvement. The VxRail configuration is very complicated and a little bit too difficult to guess what the final product is going to be. The product needs better integration… more »
