Noah Johnson

Fast Implementation, Extensible and Powerful, Some features Continuing to Mature

2019-08-21

A place to generate useful reports about services and resources that actually relates to current systems, including show-back/charge-back reporting and ownership information of systems.

Pros

Plugs into any API, and has a scripting engine that makes possible what many other tools fail at.

Cons

The included API is bifurcated between the Legacy API and a New API.

Time savings, better understanding of the environment,

Pros

Support has been knowledgeable, responsive, and easy to get a real person to talk with.

Cons

We did need some help with a few scripts on some out of the box things we wanted to do but that was more of a us problem then vCommander.

Powerful tools right out of the box

2018-02-12

Additionally, the users had the ability to access their servers without getting unnecessary access to our vCenters with excess permissions.

Pros

The software provides immediate functionality once you plug in your environment that does not require a team of people to run. The reports are detailed and useful and we can extend the automation to give our end users the ability to make requests quickly and easily.

Cons

Some scripting and programming knowledge, especially API knowledge can be very useful when extending automation tasks into your environment.

David Valenzuela-Rios

vCommander was the answer to our long search of VM automation and provisioning software.

2018-02-06

I have recommended this software to other colleagues in other business units inside our company that they have been deploying vCommander. I also recommend the product when teaching our courses worldwide and talk about the different needs we had and how vCommander has been able to resolve them all so far. There are many benefits that I already have mentioned previously that make vCommander a very strong and solid option.

Pros

The very intuitive workflow to deploy system configurations that with other products would take us days.

Overall great software

2018-02-06

Pros

self service portal for customers: allow customers to perform vm deployments, power on/off, perform snapshots

Cons

When customers use portal for self-service, they ran into few issues with the interface. Could take a bit of time to fix due to time difference

We employ vCommander for our API driven workflow. The Embotics team has been helpful.

2018-02-23

Pros

The software is relatively easy to use and has not required extensive retraining as we originally transitioned from vmware labmanager.

Cons

This impacts our users but it difficult to monitor for.

Phillip Short

Overall experience with the product from an engineering perspective has been positive

2018-02-07

Pros

Product support is some of the best I've had with any vendor - support knows the product inside and out and not just sending you a document that doesn't answer questions. Application itself is fairly easy to use and gives the customer an experience to use their virtual services from anywhere needed.

Cons

Having using the application for a short period of time and being an older version, it does have a very plain feel to the appearance.

vCommander is a very capable platform. With its versatility, it is a market leader

2018-02-07

Pros

vCommander is feature packed.

Cons

It really takes some time to ramp up on, as the admin console was clearly designed by an engineer, not a UX designer.

Easy to use software, very capable

2018-02-06

Pros

New HTML5 interface is very slick and quick.

Cons

The licensing cost is very high, although comparable to vRA. There are certain things that vRA does better, but not many.
