Rated 4 out of 5 by Adrian Marc Creek BSc (Hons) MBCS CITP from Key benefits include the ability to identify resource usage and hot spots.Valuable Features:I have been using Operations Manager for the last few months since reviewing my licence structure and procuring the Enterprise Plus, management bundle. Having a number of distributed vSphere environments spread across the UK and Europe has presented a number of challenges in terms of centralised alerting and reporting. With my collections all configured I am now able to receive invaluable information quickly - reducing the labour that was previously causing issues. Key benefits:-* Ability to identify resource usage and hot spots* Understand where I can reclaim resources* Trend and forecast my virtual landscape by adding projectsImprovements to My Organization:* Used to reclaim CPU and memory resources from over-provisioned virtual guests* Remove resource pools and unnecessary reservations* Able to communicate to management the real impact of adding additional servers to my existing architectureRoom for Improvement:I would like the reporting function to be made more complete. Translate the great dynamic, volatile information from the dashboard to a nice report that can be made available to the non-technical within the organisation.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
