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