Chris Thibeau says in a Proxmox VE review
Technical Support Analyst at a tech vendor with 1,001-5,000 employees
The template option allows us to build a desktop in a VM, then quickly deploy as a linked clone. The hard drive file on the template is used (read-only), then all changes are saved in a separate hard drive file. It is like deploying a new VM based on snapshots. View full review »

Matias Sundman says in a KVM review
System Architect at a aerospace/defense firm with 10,001+ employees
There is a lot of value with an open source solution because you have some freedom of changing how the system behaves and looks because it's open source. You can modify to your requirements which you cannot really do with VMware. View full review »
Software512a says in a KVM review
Software Architect with 501-1,000 employees
I find the density of the product most valuable. It is because of kernel same page merging technology (KSM) that is integrated into Linux kernel. That high density makes KVM one of the important players of the virtualization market. View full review »

System Architect at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
Our infrastructure is based on KVM and Linux Containers (LXC). We had a lot of VMware legacy, but it was converted to Ubuntu and KVM hypervisor for about the last year. Management and backup is a lot easier with with Ubuntu and KVM, especially combined with ZFS and snapshotting. View full review »

PaaS Engineer at JSE Limited
The most valuable aspect of this solution is that you don't need to pay for it. It's free, as opposed to paying for a VMware license. View full review »

VascoCampos says in a KVM review
System Engineer at NoBoring Lda
I like that this is an open-source solution. It is very powerful, and it's easy. When you install Hypervisor with KVM, you can transform it into a server with the graphical QEME in minutes, then look at what you have and remove all graphical things and then you can restore what you had originally.

reviewer1197474 says in an Oracle VM VirtualBox review
Head Of Information Technology at a media company with 5,001-10,000 employees
The most valuable feature is the ability to copy bidirectionally between the desktop and the virtual machine. The representation is very good. I have a problem with Hyper-V where you don't see the edges, especially the bottom and the top. With VirtualBox, I'm able to see that. VirtualBox gives you granular control to very deep levels. This solution is not resource-heavy on the system, and I'm able to run several virtuals at one time. This solution is very user-friendly. View full review »
Syed FasihUr Rahman says in a Nutanix AHV review
Enterprise Solutions Architect at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
The interface is very good, and quite user-friendly. You can learn how to use this solution in three to five days. They have lots of easy ways to provision VMs with just two clicks, which is something you cannot easily do with VMware. It is possible but quite lengthy and complex. The automation functionality is strong. View full review »
Werner-Schonborn says in an Oracle VM VirtualBox review
Product Specialist at Schoemans Offcie Systems (Pty) Ltd
The most valuable feature for me is the ease-of-use. With the GUI, it is easy to set up things and configure new things intuitively. It is a very good interface. VirtualBox is not as feature-rich as VMware, but the GUI from VirtualBox more than makes up for the features that it is lacking. View full review »
WilVan Lierop says in a XenServer review
System Integrator at a marketing services firm with 201-500 employees
The feature I find most valuable is its performance. It's a no "frills" solution. There aren't many tools and some may find that a little arcane, but I come from another visualization background. I like the console because you can do everything on the console, so you don't need any tools. View full review »
