Just received the below from the vSphere Availability team. It takes a couple of minutes to fill out and it helps the vSphere Availability team to set priorities correctly for upcoming releases, yes indeed based on your answers!

— copy / paste —

The Availability team (that brings to you products such as vSphere HA, FT etc.) would like to get your input on how you use our products today and your projected needs. The survey has mainly multiple choice questions, and will take 10-15 minutes to complete. Your feedback is invaluable in helping us tailor our development efforts towards valuable enhancements. So, thank you!

Survey time!

Today I received two requests to plug a survey. The first survey is on the topic of NAS usage and cloud storage and the second one on the topic of multi-tier apps. Please fill them out, as this is your way of defining what the future of VMware (potential) products and features looks like!

Takes about 2 minutes to fill out:

NAS / Cloud Storage survey:

This is a survey on alternatives to traditional NAS storage systems! We would like your opinion on NAS usage within your environment and consideration for alternatives to NAS solutions.


And the second one, takes 10 minutes roughly, but with the chance of winning a giftcard:

Multi-tier app Survey:
We would like your input on virtualization of multi-tier applications in our quest for continuous improvement

We have created a survey to capture your feedback: http://tinyurl.com/VMware-multi-tier-application . The survey should only take 5-10 minutes to complete.

As an incentive, respondents will be entered in a drawing to win one of three $50 Visa gift cards!

The survey will be open until July 9, 2013, so please participate soon!

vCenter Federation Survey

One of our product managers asked me if I could share this survey with the world. The topic is vCenter Federation and APIs. It literally takes a couple of minutes to fill out. Your help / input is greatly appreciated, so please if you have those two minutes to spare at the end of the day, then take the time:


Survey time…

I would like to draw your attention to two surveys. I got asked if I could help promote these and I hope you are willing to set aside a couple of minutes to fill these out.

  1. Autoscaling of Applications in vSphere – As the infrastructure layer matures, the IT problems and bottlenecks are moving closer to the application layer. Autoscaling of application workloads is a feature that is important to customers building private clouds. VMware is uniquely positioned to be able to deliver autoscaling of infrastructure layer using insights from how application are performing. With technologies like Hyperic APM, Orchestration technologies like vCO and DynamicOps VMware already owns key pieces of the puzzle to providing a powerful autoscaling solution. We are looking for feedback on what you feel is important for your applications. If you complete this survey you will have a chance of winning one of the two $50 Amazon gift cards. (Randomly picked!)
  2. Project Virtual Reality Check “State of the VDI and SBC union” survey – With so many VDI and SBC deployments out there, the differences are huge. It is only logical to wonder how these real-world VDI and SBC environments are used and how they are built, especially when you consider how the VDI/SBC market is quickly changing. Since it’s driven as much by innovation as it is by marketing campaigns, there is a clear need to better understand what is really out there.

VMware Availability Survey

I just received the following… If you have some spare time on your hands please fill out this survey, it would be much appreciated.

We are hard at work building our future products to better meet your needs. As part of this process we are developing a 3-year strategy for the VMware Business Continuity offerings, and are seeking your input to best align our strategy with your business objectives.

Please bring your voice to the table – if you have a few minutes today, would you please click on the link below and share your insights on the VMware Business Continuity road map. Answer as few or many of the questions as you’d like.


Site Recovery Manager survey… please help us out!

I just received an email from the the Site Recovery Manager Product Management team. They created a new survey, and I was hoping each of you who is using, or will be purchasing SRM soon, could take the time to complete it. These types of surveys are very useful for Product Management when it comes to setting priorities for new features and identify gaps etc. Thanks!

We are conducting a survey about VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) to learn more about how people use our products. The survey will help us identify where we can improve the product to meet your needs and we would really appreciate getting your feedback.

The link to the survey is below, it typically takes less than 10 minutes to complete. http://www.surveymethods.com/EndUser.aspx?ECC8A4BDEDA6B9BAE7
