Version 4.1 was a great starting point with some caveats (which now have been improved since) but otherwise a very solid DR product for virtual on-prem systems.

Implementation and support are sufficient - not stellar

Site Recovery Manager took a little to setup but once it is setup, it functions well and provides great redundancy.

The implementation is a bit tricky with many considerations and planning, but the management/administration after deployment is smooth, easy (user friendly), and very efficient for server management.

VMware works fantastic for our business. We are located in a hurricane area and co-located DR site. Both our data centers run VMware and this allows us to quickly fail-over from one site to the other as needed.

Vmware and the 3rd party vendors that we use are professional and place some pride in providing the best service for what we pay for.

Works great but with the new version, 6.1.1, you are forced to use the web client only and it doesn't appear as self explanatory as the thick client.

Integration with 3rd party storage arrays is challenging.

The adoption early on gave us exactly what we needed for visibility into our environment. After running it for a while, we wanted more, so we actually looked at a competing product. During that time, we brought VMware back and let them know we wwere looking to replace them. They realized that we were not using it the way we could, for all the things their product could do, so they dedicated an abundance of resources to us to configure vRealize, upgrade what we had, and train my team how to use it. It took a couple months, but now it works well to bring us the metrics and visibility into our environment so that we can better prevent issues, maintain optimal operation, and keep everything running smooth for the business. It was just a matter of the vendor making sure we were still using it as we should and knew how to use it.
