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

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

VMWare experience in my company

in general terms it is a very useful tool to virtualize most of the services we use in our company.

Pros

what I liked most about VMWare is the ease when it comes to managing and creating virtual machines

Cons

What I like the least is the slowness in some processes and the consumption of resources.

A really easy and professionals tool for manage for parts of a virtual environment.

Pros

Easy manage of physical and virtual environment; you can move virtual machine easily from a physical host to another and will be easy lan maintenance because VmWare update will advise about type of update, if will need reboot of Vm of host ...

Cons

I think that is really complete, what could be great is have a monitoring tool internally, a tool like Nagios for example.

Easily Allowed Me To Setup Configurations for Multiple Systems Simultaneously

Pros

Easy to use. vCenter Config Manager allows you to easily create configuration profiles for deployments of virtual machines. Due to its simplicity it allows me to create multiple machines quickly without the need to touch each machine individually to configure.

Cons

At first glance it can be kind of intimidating; you may have to reference some KB articles depending on the type machines that you are wanting to eventually deploy.

Secure configurations with vCenter Configuration Manager

This tool has given me added value to my experience as a professional within the company, it has been possible to improve the execution of virtualization that allows me to centrally manage multiple servers and virtual machines.

Pros

It stores the configuration data configurations of different systems, security and assets of each one independently, besides this it creates a centralized database of information, in this way you can optimize the processes in the company.

Cons

The maximum number of vCenter servers that can interconnect with each other.

Bring insight to your infrastructure

Having one view into our infrstructure was very important.

Pros

I love the fact that I can now see the data about each and every one of the pieces of compute that I am in charge of, add to the fact that SaltStack is an event engine, and this product is a powerful tool for successful automation

Cons

It's a bit complicated to get set up, but that was easily overcome.

A great tool

I do not have anything bad to say about it. It is, in my opinion, the best compatibility you can find for VMware products. Overall I haven't had any poor experiences.

Pros

This gives you the ability to easily configure and move your virtual machines. It has a nice interface and it's not overly complicated.

Awesome product

Drastically reduces time to deploy.

Super easy to use and integrates seemlessly into existing infrastructure. Cuts time for configuration drastically.
