It's all a matter of need. Do you need to reduce your power expenses? If not, I would steer clear. How many hosts do you have?

there is 16 hosts, yeah the general consensus it to not use it

Yes, it works extremely well, we use it at our Datacenters.

Brings up servers on demand, and shuts them down cleanly, if not required. ALL VMware Admins should be seen to saving the planet! That's why we virtualise to save costs! Electrical, Air Con, Heating!

I somewhat "disagree" with the "stay clear".

Will you be using all 16 hosts? 24 x7 ?

I will go with your advise as usual!
