RHEV Review

A responsive technical support portal is available for quickly solving problems

What is our primary use case?

We have been using RHEV in both on-premises and cloud deployments for testing.

In my team, we don't have access to a paid version of Red Hat. Instead, we mostly use CentOS and Ubuntu.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the support portal.

What needs improvement?

Configuring the network interfaces is much better in Ubuntu and should be improved. I find this to be the biggest problem. In Ubunto they have the idea of the Netplan, which is much better than the facility in Red Hat.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using RHEV for about five months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have seen some bugs that I fixed on my own.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not had to scale this solution because it is not for everyday use. Rather, we use it for testing purposes.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support for RHEV is very fast and good. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use different versions of Linux including CentOS and Ubuntu. CentOS is very comparable to Red Hat because it is almost the same, internally.

How was the initial setup?

In the beginning, the initial setup was quite complex. However, once you get used to it, I would say that the setup is of normal difficulty and not a problem.

What about the implementation team?

I implemented this solution with the assistance of my colleague.

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

We are using the free version of Red Hat.

What other advice do I have?

RHEV is a good solution and I would rate it a nine out of ten.
