Experts out there, I would like your opinion on vRealize suite for a small company.
Client does not have big network and would like to know whether it is worth to invest on vrealize suite.
I do not have knowledge on it.
Would you recommend it for a small vmware network.?

I must have misunderstood between vrealize ops and vrealize suite !.
My client is after vrealize operation manager. They have only 200 VMs and want to monitor , health check etc. They have already running esxi ent plus. They do not have cloud.
If I understood correctly, the Ops mng is for auditing, capacity planing , health check etc.
Do they have to spend money on operation manager instead they can buy third party monitoring tools for less expensive?
What will they benefit out of Ops Manager compare with other monitoring tools for small network?

So they want to report on health, and capacity planning only ?

VMware used to call it vCenter Operations Manager (vCOPS). and then it became VMware vRealize Operations Manager.

and we nicknamed it vROPS.

There is a foundation version, which you can use for FREE with your current license, which will give you a taster of vROPS.

Veeam One is also a competitor to this product, and you've also got the Dell Quest products vFoglight.
