What do you like best?

i have tried many virtual machine but i find VMware as best. It has many advance features it can send and recive data at a fastre rate.Cost Savings. The virtualization brought about by multiple servers reduces the physical server needs, storage space, and lowers the energy bill. ...

No Downtime. The systems will run uninterrupted. ...

Backup and Restore. ...

Virtual Labs. ...

Security.

VMware Workstation is our product that enables users to set up virtual machines on a single physical machine, and use them simultaneously along with the actual machine. In simple words, it enables its users to install a virtual operating system within an operating system and use them both at the same time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

enhances security provided by ibm cloud fro vmware nsolutions is something unique to this solution . we can use encryption at rest or vSAN encryption or customer managed encryption at rest solution. also the virtualized dedicated bare metal hardware adds on to the security of application hosted. very good solution for a financial solution where security is of Highest concern. also this helps many organization to make to move to cloud. it helped then to explore the million possibilities around the world of cloud and how can they modernaise the innovation and development of application with the help of cloud and ai/ml services provided by cloud providers.Using VMware expertise at global scale with IBM Professional and Managed Services spanning 30+ IBM Cloud data centers worldwide.It gives us multiple storage options, an additional layer of security as well as high availability. Replication is a snap when we have needed it. Having admin access to vCenter Server allows easy of manageability without the hassle and limitations an onsite solution only restricted us too prior to implementation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

management of the solution is a bit difficult job with vshpare and ibm managed services joining hand togeather and then integration of services. also the integration of services from multiplatformn has always been restricted becouse of networking limitations. this solutiomn along with the cloud migration encourages people to continew with hybrit solutions which are not great for long run. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I have just started using IBM cloud for Vmware solutions. What best I liked is the quickly and seamlessly integration or even the migration of on-premises VMware workloads to the IBM Cloud. Another good thing that is quite impressive is the single management console to deploy, access, and manage the VMware environments on IBM Cloud. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

So far, I haven't realised any con about this software. Probably because it has all the features be it expansion, migration, integration while confidently leveraging the same tools, technologies and skills in the cloud. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using IBM cloud for VMware solutions to support application development and testing cycles and migration workloads.

Using this, I have realised the ability to quickly

order, provision and move the application development infrastructure to it's own environment.

Another benefit is that it provides the ability to catalog environments to easily snapshot the production applications and deploy multiple development & test beds for developers.

Also, this software helps in migration of workloads seamlessly reducing the migration long hours. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The flexibility that allows multiple deployments is a game changer... the control mechanism in the infrastructure at different levels is indeed helpful and supportive Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In a Banking environment due to the security involved Cloud solutions is very slowly creeping in. Multiple solutions that over-arch with vmwares capability and sandbox environments for developers make it slow for AI implementations where in POCs are to be delivered before actual production or service run. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

To offer customer managed client solutions that provide secure and flexible infrastructure this is not only the best but the only bet... I wish the seamless availability of connectivity and data migration makes it the most efficient and sought for product Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

as with any service located in the cloud there are security concerns as to where our data is being stored and who may possibly have access to it Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

the business problems we were facing was the cost of having on premise storage. by using a hybrid environment of having our most sensitive information stored on premise and less sensitive (day to day data) stored in the cloud we were able to reduce our yearly storage costs by almost 500,000.00 dollars annually.
