Just curious as to if anyone else uses VMWare or works with VMWare?
We did VMWare back with the Frantech brand.  Would be good for a smaller company specializing in managed services... but if you like automation or easy fixes for clients, not a good thing -_-

We used Onapp before and moved everything to VMware vSphere. I really love VMware, it's great! A very stable and professional product!

Probably anyone who works in a company with over 30 employees uses VMware.  It's relatively simple to administrate, but it's cost prohibitive.

I also use it at work, ESXi (the bare metal version). I'm using a free license (no virtual center) and it's great. I have probably 30+ VMs running on 2 physical servers. Uptimes in years.


Not to be taken seriously, ever!
Working with it almost on a daily basis.

Like Aldryic said: good, stable product. It's the things around it (unmanaged hosting eise) that is lacking.

Vmware has a CLI so you can automate stuff but I think no one has done it yet.

From a hosting point of view there is vCloud, but that aint cheap.

Since the new VSPP licensing model it isn't that expensive like it was before. For us are the costs compared to Onapp almost the same.
