If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering vCenter Orchestrator, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
We provide services to customers. However, we are users of the product. I don't know of any better VM environment. I would rate this solution at a nine out of ten. We've been very happy with its capabilities so far.
We have around 10 customers making use of the solution. My recommendation is that one solely go with vCenter. I rate vCenter Orchestrator as a ten out of ten.
I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
My advice for anybody who is considering vCenter Orchestrator is to first collect all of their requirements or the requirements of the client. These are the basic steps and once everything is understood, the products can be properly selected. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
Even though it is expensive I would still rate this solution a ten out of ten.
We're using the on-premises deployment model. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.
My advice is that Orchestrator will ease your life in your tasks. Once you teach yourself this product, it will make difficult jobs relatively easy. It is a good solution, but it needs the capability of bulk deployment. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
We do not have a business relationship with VCenter Orchestrator, we are customers. To do a day to day job, you already have everything that you need in this solution. Add-ons are not necessary. This is why it is a good solution. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
I definitely recommend this solution. As a whole, it is quite good. It is difficult to pick a single aspect that I would recommend. You have to use the whole thing. From what I have been told, the newer versions have already addressed some of the issues that we have identified. We are planning on upgrading to the most recent version, and I am waiting to see what the differences are. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We're using the on-premise deployment model. It's a great solution and it's great to work with as well. Anything coming from VMware is pretty much top-notch, but, of course, you still have to look at the licensing requirements before you sign on to the solution. It should be a case of functionality versus budget in terms of if it will work for your organization. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.
We mostly use the private cloud deployment model. I would recommend the solution. I'd rate it 8.5 out of ten.
I would rate it a nine out of ten. Not a ten because of the price.
This is a product that I'm still exploring. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
I rate this solution a nine out of 10 because of its simplicity, scalability, and availability. The one ding would be the need for better manageability of VM sprawl, that would be nice. In terms of advice, I would tell people that this is VMware's only business, or primary business. That's longevity in your investment, as opposed to going with a Microsoft or a Linux that may or may not continue the solution.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
