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 »

Ran Givon says in a Nutanix Acropolis review
CEO at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
The management interface of this solution is great. We really enjoy not being locked into VMware as the app adviser vendor. The latest version of Acropolis has a very handy micro-segmentation feature, which we use very often. Overall, I think the most significant upside is the great support provided by Nutanix.

Gerhard Joubert says in a Nutanix Acropolis review
IT Manager at Q4 Fuel
I definitely find the reduced power consumption very valuable. Another aspect I really like, when one compares Citrix to VMware, is the interface where you talk directly to your VM from the present software. We have found that it is a lot more responsive using VMware compared to Citrix. View full review »

ICT Solution Especialist with self employed
For me, there are several features that I find valuable, including: * Use of open-source software. * Compatibility with simple Linux container solutions on the same hosts. * The integration of a simple and flexible backup solution. * The dashboard/control panel. Worthy of special mention is the community, which is excellent at solving or explaining difficulties for the users of the solution. View full review »

Bunmi Sadiq says in a VMware vSphere review
‎IT Supervisor at a maritime company with 201-500 employees
The features in vSphere data recovery are excellent. Sometimes I've deleted an entire server before and was able to recover the deleted VM. I didn't have to use the backup to restore the VM. I just used some command line tools and I was able to restore the deleted VM. I find that fascinating. For VM migration, I can migrate my virtual machines from one place to the other. vSphere has easy integration. I have some older server models. They are HP products. I have both old and new server models. I was able to integrate all these servers despite that fact that the date of manufacture is a five-year gap between the units. I was using the same version of vSphere and I was able to integrate all the servers together. They are working well through it. View full review »
