The speed of the solution is excellent.
VMware vSphere is a stable platform. We never had any issues with VMware vSphere. Once you deploy it with a stable version of the server or the hardware, there's no issue at all.
It has a good performance and you can cluster it.
We are happy with Proxmox VE. We use it as part of a cluster.
It is easy to use, stable, and flexible. It is a pretty mature product, and it is faster than VirtualBox.
If you prefer command-line, there are all kinds of command-line options.
The pause feature is valuable. I can pause, which is something that not all hypervisors allow. The snapshot feature is also valuable.
This product is very user-friendly and easy to use.
There are two very good things about this product including licensing and stability.
The most valuable feature is that it's an end-to-end solution.
The solution's security is its most valuable aspect.
The continued uptime of our virtual machines is good.
The solution is overall very good with all the facilities. It is user friendly, easy to configure, has documentation, and support is available.
This solution is very stable. Much more so than similar products.
Oracle is probably the best database technology out there. I've never found anything as complete in terms of feature and functionality and sophistication.

Can you explain what an IOMMU is? How does it improve VM performance?
What is Server Virtualization Software?
Server virtualization software, sometimes also called platform virtualization software, is a staple of the modern data center. Virtualization involves emulating a complete physical computer in virtual form. As a result, it becomes possible to run multiple “virtual machines” (VMs) on a single physical device. Given the importance of virtualization to infrastructure strategy, current product offerings for server virtualization tend to be feature rich and highly sophisticated.
When evaluating server virtualization solutions, IT Central Station member comments reflect the depth of functionality and nuances of products on the market today. Preferences go well beyond basics like wanting a virtualization package to be flexible and easy to install and configure.
Enterprises are now essentially running their entire infrastructures on top of server virtualization software. As a result, users look for capabilities like automatic mirroring/backup using snapshots on the runtime as a way to minimize the number of fail-recovery procedures and downtime. IT Central Station members pay attention to how well a server virtualization solution can handle multiple physical machines, maintaining relative processing demand to get to optimal usage of each physical machine. The goal is to minimize overload at peak times.
Infrastructure managers emphasize host clustering support. For instance, will a server virtualization software package support at least 8 nodes and 90 VMs? They pay attention to replication and disaster recovery as well as live migration in a VM/concurrent based migration without VM downtime. Users seem to want a granular administration model. Stability is prized.
Portability and usability also drive selection of virtualization managers. With admins on call anywhere, some users want the software to run on a laptop without using up much battery power. The quality of the web client also matters in this context.
