KVM Review

Free, easy to use, stable, and mature

What is our primary use case?

It is useful for everything for which you would use VirtualBox. It is the kernel virtualization model in Linux. I am using the 5.10 kernel. It comes with the Linux operating system.

What is most valuable?

It is easy to use, stable, and flexible. It is a pretty mature product, and it is faster than VirtualBox.

What needs improvement?

Its resource usage can be improved. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for several years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

How are customer service and technical support?

There is no support for it except in the community. If you want support, you have to pay a company that provides support for this platform.

How was the initial setup?

There is no installation as such.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is free for everyone.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. If they were using Linux, this is a requirement.

I would rate KVM an eight out of ten. If KVM uses less resources, it might improve my score.
