Built on VMware technology. Built-in, out-of-the-box compliance toolkits developed by VMware's Center.

Pros

vCenter Configuration Manager was born, raised and integrated with vSphere. For that reason delivers impressive capabilities that support hardening the VMware Infrastructure. The family of products that vCenter Configuration Manager support are VMware ESX, ESXi, vCenter, vCloud Director and VMware vCloud Networking and Security. Patchin VM templates and offline VMs is also possible using this product. vCenter Configuration Manager supports configuration management across virtual and physical servers and more.. across VMware Infrastructure and across multiple OS including Windows, Linux and Windows.

Cons

nothing bad, if you want the best compatibility with VMware products, this is it. There are other HyperVisor platforms out there, however, this software is native for VMWare, that counts.

Excellent Configuration Tools, with standard VMWare Quality!

Total control over my vSphere Server. Easy to use, excellent support, no complaints about any vmware product.

Pros

vCenter Configuration Manager is, like all VMWare products, very user friendly. Gives you superb control over vSphere. In short just an excellent product.

Cons

I can't really say very many bad things about VMware products except that because the products are made to be almost out of the box ready to use, you might need to do some investigating if a particular feature does not work, but if that is the case it is almost always a simple fix or easy to change setting.

Powerful and easy to use

Pros

Very useful for managing large numbers of virtual machines on multiple ESXI hosts. Vcenter is surprisingly easy to use for such a powerful piece of software, it's interface is well designed and user friendly.

Cons

The only small con I have found is that the documentation available online is sometimes slightly lacking in some specific areas, but it's mostly good

Necesarry if you need to built a cloud

We are satisficed because with vRA we could implement an excellent private cloud in the company and we reduced the times that before take to setup a server and be more agile at the demand of the business

Pros

Ones you have ready the templates and the designs of the workflow help you a lot to be more efference and respond quit to the demand of the business or the internal customers. Other pro, is that you can find a lot information in the VMware website or in other websites to get refence of how do templates or compare best practices

Cons

In the beginning is complicate design the workflows specially with the interactions in the workflow so the best is design well with the help of the VMware engineers and pay for some hours to help you in the implementations

Used in home lab and enterprise environment.

Pros

Using this as the central management for my Vsphere host and the clustering and migration tools work incredibly well.

Cons

Once and a while the web gui can hang up and be slow. And with the new reals of 6.7 they have changed a lot os srtting around so it's a big change to re lean all of it
