Reliable, simple to use, integrates well but expensive
Pros and Cons
  • "The solutions best feature is that it is easy to use."
  • "The customer service is good but there is a cost for it. It does not come free."

What is our primary use case?

We are a non-profit and we are working on a project utilizing the solution for infrastructure.

What is most valuable?

The solutions best feature is that it is easy to use. The integration between different operating system is easy. It is reliable. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for more than fifteen years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is totally stable.

How are customer service and technical support?

The customer service is good but there is a cost for it. It does not come free.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is an expensive solution. There should be more flexible with licensing to allow small businesses the essentials of the solution's features. They should have a reduced license fee for a certain amount of memory and nodes, or some kind of restriction like this, that would allow smaller businesses a reduced price. We have had a hard time to afford the solution.

There are a lot of other companies that offer similar solutions and they are becoming more and more competitive with VMware at a fraction of the price. For example, Red Hat. 

What other advice do I have?

The solution is very good but the price is its downside, this is the reason for my low rating. 

I rate VMware vSAN a seven out of ten.
