VMware has been known as a big player in the field of server virtualization or cloud hosting Vietnam in the large enterprise market.
It has been renowned for its performance, stability and slick management tools, but also a premium price point – not least when compared against open-source options like OpenStack.

Before you start poking around under the hood, however, it is worth bearing in mind that VMware also offers exceptional out-of-the-box usability. While some hypervisors take a lot of time and a lot of technical skill to install, tools like vCloud Director are quick to learn and do a good job of keeping to a minimum the number of hurdles you need to jump to spin up a production-ready server.

Quality of management tools

The aforementioned vCloud Director, for example, provides a single management portal for virtual machine provisioning and cataloguing, load balancing, hot-adding memory and CPU, security, and creating snapshots.
For the small business user, this means a minimal admin overhead and a low barrier to entry for some of the platform’s more sophisticated, value-add features.
Finally, it is worth pointing out that your experience of a hypervisor – as with any complex software tool – can be easily colored by the availability of support, documentation and an active user community. This is all the more true if you are not a seasoned cloud professional with previous experience of managing cloud environments, and do not plan to spend on new staff or skills in the near future.
