1.
VMware vCloud Request Manager has been deprecated with customers recommended to upgrade to VMware Service Manager

2.
Requires vCloud Director, available at additional cost

3.
Each VMware VM template will have it’s own VMDK, even if the template varies only slightly in it’s configuration options.

4.
Whilst VMware offer no alternative to Server App
-
V, vFabric Application Director would allow more granular control over the appl
ication layer
for certain apps, and provide the ability to deploy multi
-
tiered services

Maintenance, Management & Monitoring

1.
VMware, with Update Manager, can patch ESXi Hosts, and with the vCenter Operations Management Suite Enterprise Plus, can man
age

physical hosts, and guest OS’s from a patching perspective. Customers
would require VMware Hyperic to perform any kind of monitoring of the physical infrastructure. Both of these additional prod
uct
s are licensed per VM and come at considerable expense.

2.
Would require vCenter Operations Management Suite Enterprise Plus and VMware Hyperic to manage any physical systems.

3.
vCloud Request Manager deprecated with customers encouraged to upgrade to the unproven VMware Service Manager, with no guaran
tee
s of integration with other vCenter Management Components.

4.
VMware's vCenter Orchestrator has a limited set of plug
-
ins, of which the vast majority are VMware centric. No mention of plug
-
ins for other enterprise management systems and tools such as those from HP,
IBM, BMC etc.

5.
VMware require multiple tools to deliver any form of insight. vCenter Operations will monitor hosts, vFabric Hyperic will mo
nit
or applications on physical servers, but simply collects metrics, without providing
guidance for remediation. vFabric APM required for insight into a limited number of applications

6.
Lab Manager deprecated, with customers expected to upgrade to vCloud Director, which has no connections with Development IDE.

Protection of Key Applications & Workloads

1.
VMware Data Recovery 2.0 offers no protection for the workloads within the virtual machine, simply focusing on the VM itself

as

the protection unit and offers no protection of
physical machines

2.
VMware Data Recovery 2.0 is not extensible by 3
rd

parties

3.
VMware Data Recovery 2.0 appliances are unaware of one another, leading to potentially duplicated backups, or missed backups.

4.
VMware Data Recovery 2.0 offers no protection to tape media. Disk only

5.
VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager provides a solution for disaster recovery, it comes at significant additional cost, whic
h r
ises for each VM that is protected.

1.
VMware vCenter manages VMware ESX and ESXi only. Would require additional 3
rd

party technologies to manage alternative hypervisors.

2.
VMware do not produce any operating systems, and support is therefore focused not on the guest operating system itself, but i
nst
ead, on the VM Tools and hardware.

3.
A number of enterprise management tools integrate with vCenter, however VMware’s management tools, and orchestration tools la
ck
broad interoperability with other systems.

4.
vFabric is a platform focused 100% on Spring, Java, and is available at considerable expense, on a per VM basis. Development

to
ols are disconnected from other management
tools, and only vFabric APM can provide insight into the applications, available at additional expense.
