"The solution is easy to use, user-friendly interface and has high availability features. When comparing it to other solutions it is more robust."
"The most valuable feature of vSphere is its modularity. I also like the maturity updates. It's available everywhere and almost all the data centers are using it."
"The speed of the solution is excellent."
"The performance is efficient."
"VMware vSphere has useful tools for management and support."
"This solution's most valuable feature is its High Availability."
"Stability and scalability are the most valuable features of this solution."
"I like the capability of vMotion, DRS, high availability, and resource distribution."
"Great at solving connection problems."
"I haven't faced any inconveniences working with this solution. It is very easy to use."
"VMware Workstation is great for migrating and patching operating systems."
"Because the setup is so easy, this is a solution that can be used at a moment's notice."
"Technical support is very good."
"The initial setup is quite complex."
"An improvement could be in terms of keeping up with the upgrades. The upgrades could be set in an automated way so that the newer features don't require you to manually update, or you get an option to update automatically. This would be a useful enhancement."
"If they improve on the knowledge base and documentation, it would be extremely helpful."
"An area for improvement is that when comparing VMware to Nutanix, Nutanix has higher availability, like clustering for virtual machines. That is a good idea and VMware could profit from something like that for higher availability installations."
"Integration with different platforms could be improved."
"The technical support is good. However, it could be more seamless when it comes to chat support and lower response times."
"One problem that needs fixing is when we run the backup for the servers, the servers become inaccessible to everybody on-site while it is creating a snapshot."
"Here in Egypt, we would like everything free. So if you give us the license for free, we would be thrilled."
"The price should be reduced."
"Lacks the ability to clone onto another system rather than starting from scratch."
"Performance could be improved, it's somewhat clunky."
"My experience with Workstation is limited, so I don't know all the functionalities of this tool. Maybe Workstation could add some more compatibility with other vendors."
"I would want to see features included that make deployment easier."
