Most popular VMware Virtual Appliances for IT Administrators


Share Virtual Machines has ranked the virtual appliances for IT Administrators available at the VMware Virtual Appliance Marketplace (VVAM) as described below. I am going  through this exercise  to gain an understanding of what types of appliances are  popular, who is providing them and what they are composed of.  Apart from the serial number in the first column and the computed Rank in the last column, all other data is from the VVAM; the titles are self-explanatory.

Methodology Used:
  • I accessed the listings for Administration, sorted them by Rating and cut and pasted the first 100 listing into an Excel spreadsheet.
  • The Star rating that is visible on the web page shows up as a decimal fraction in Excel, this is what you see in the Customer Rating column below.
  • I computed a Rank for each listing  by multiplying the Customer Rating x 100 x the number of ratings for that appliance.
  • Finally I sorted the result by the rank to prepare the table that appears below. I have selected the top 20 of 269 appliances.
  • The virtual appliances are ordered by their rank from the highest to the lowest
  • I found it interesting that several appliances that rated a 5 had either one or no user each and the bulk of the ratings are for appliances having 4 and 3 stars.
