My primary use case is for this solution is for server administrator management. This solution is deployed on-premises.
The client I'm working with is basically a national ISP, and they are hosting multiple services and a couple of mail servers and hosting servers. So, basically, clusters are made with multiple hardware and things are running on them.
I use this solution for workstation configuration management.
We use this solution in our data center for network management.
We have some customers in our company, and we deliver the virtual infrastructure throughout the vCenter portal. We get them some resource pools, and they manage the resource pools. In some cases, if you want to have, for example, a resource manager portal, you can use the Cloud Director. But in most cases, we use the vCenter as a resource pool manager. We also use Vcops for operations management, insight manager, and VMware vRealize Log Insight.
We use vCenter Configuration Manager at least four times a year. We start at the baseline, deploy the virtual machine's upgrade, and set the new parameters for the virtual machine. We use vCenter Configuration Manager for the configuration of vCenter, the DC host, and all the HP. Every time the HP sends logs or patches, we deploy them through vCenter Configuration Manager. We also use the vRealize Log Insight. I'm connected at this moment through vCenter.
We have a basic configuration with a host in a cluster, and a virtual machine.
The primary purpose of the product is to maintain system performance and optimize it.
We are solution providers and we are in a classic environment without automation. We are licensed and we are using vCenter to manage and maintain our environment.
We primarily use the solution to manage the virtual machines.
I provide services to our customers. We largely use it for automation.
We use Configuration Manager at one or two companies where we provide services. I live in Fiji and people don't really go into the detail of compliance and automated configuration. Most things are generally done manually so with the implementation of Configuration Manager it becomes automated. There are some reporting and management tasks involved. We're partners with vCenter and I'm the IT general manager.
We primarily use the solution to control the host.
vCenter Configuration Manager is a central management tool for our virtual environment. This solution is used for the configuration of our users' settings, helping to power the ITIL process. Without it, we would not be able to manage our environment.
We are responsible for the planning stage only, and we gradually do monthly-based monitoring and capacity utilization of the IT infrastructure. Based on our findings, we do some brainstorming to determine if there was an error or if it was due to less processing or storage capacity or memory management, those kind of things. So we use this program to do internal planning, basically.
My primary use for vCenter is to manage my hosts and all my VMs via vCenter. I can also monitor my VMs and my environment.
We primarily use the solution for a client that has an environment with three data centers with 25 hosts per site on each of them. There's also a headquarters in Israel. The solution is used at each center.
Our clients use it to get real, in-depth information about how the environment is being used; to see if they have to scale up, scale down, scale out.
My primary use case is for migration, to manage my host, if you have three ESXi, more than one ESXi, you need to manage all of them by vCenter. The jobs that I do with vCenter is the emission and the migration with VMware ESXi.
