ESXI is the best for virtual machine. Is easy to use and capable of making many virtual machine at once. I started to use ESXi as a way to build, control, configure, and push-out virtual machines (servers) throughout my company. I am now able to set out a selection of systems to individuals to use and once done and I have the data and work completed from an employee I can easily keep data and delete that used VM which I can relaunch at anytime from anywhere. I use these VMs so that I don't have to worry about any viruses and malware getting back into my main server. ESXi also works great with VCenter and setting up virtual networks.
- IT admin has complete control over these VMs through ESXi as well as being able to release a new VM if the prior VM system has any issue, this saves hundreds of hours for our admins.
-Using ESXi together with VCenter is a great platform for maintaining the VMs, virtual networks, building datacenters, and tracking what is going on with our VMs.
- ESXi that I had set up as a lab to learn from and to teach others off of saved our entire network from a serious hack out of China. When I set up this ESXi as a learning platform I set it in a way that it was the main point of our network (by accident) this accident stopped a brute force attack that was done through a 3 day weekend with over thousands of attempts to hack into. They only got into a BS VM that was set for learning. This saved us a lot of money and embarrassment.
Better way of teaching, make ESXI easier to learn to use
Configuration need to be a bit easier to understand
VMware needs to do something about the learning costs
I have worked with several other virtual machine platforms such as Microsoft Hyper-V and Oracle VM VirtualBox and find not only the ESXi is a better platform for us, ESXi also seems to be easier once you have learned the basics.
Great return in savings on physical systems
Great savings not having to buy so many physical machines, when you can just build new VM systems at no cost and a few minutes
Turning P2V had really helped out again saving money not having to replace old or failed systems
