Stable, with good resource management, but needs to allow more access to documentation

What is our primary use case?

The solution is primarily used for server virtualization. We have opportunities that we want to learn from. For our customers, we recommend this product. We have Oracle databases or Oracle, Linux, or Red Hat Linux to run it on a virtual machine, and Oracle VM fits perfectly into that.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable aspect of the solution is the resource management from the OVM Manager."
  • "You need to have a model for documentation available for the users. Right now, if you have to search for some troubleshooting, you need to have Oracle login. Many personnel might not have that login. The reach, the availability of information to the end-user, is not there."

What other advice do I have?

We're partners with Oracle. We're consultants. My advice to other potential users is this: nothing is better than planning. It's much in a better way to start a project. That way, you understand how much it is that you need to have or how many servers you require. It seldom matters when you deploy in the virtual environment. You need to be very hands-on in Linux environments. I come from a Windows background. I am not a Linux user, for the most part. That said, fo this project, I learned Linux. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.

Good performance, but better management features and integration are needed

What is our primary use case?

We are a consulting company and I work with a lot of solutions to compare them and find out which ones are good for my customers. The primary use case for this solution is virtualization. I use this solution in on-premises data centers.

Pros and Cons

  • "The GUI interface makes the management of KVM easier than ever before."
  • "Business continuity features need to be added."

What other advice do I have?

I have been using this solution since before it was owned by Red Hat, when it was community-based. It is easier to manage than ever before because you used to have to use the command-line interface, instead of the GUI. I do not recommend this product for those looking for a stable and scalable virtualization solution because they will ultimately have problems in their data center. Just two weeks ago, I helped a friend of mine to migrate from KVM to VMware. I think that if Red Hat worked on some business continuity features and add them to KVM then it would receive a better grade and be a moreā€¦

Open source, easy to install, and works well with Linux

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use Proxmox for training in university. I use its virtual environment.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is open source and free to use."
  • "The availability of the solution could be a bit better."

What other advice do I have?

I'm just an end-user of the solution. I don't have a business relationship with Proxmox. I use the product in my classroom as a learning aid. I'd recommend the solution. It's been an invaluable learning resource for myself and my students. It works well and shows off the potential of virtual environments. I use it often for my classes and with my students as a teaching device. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate this product at an eight. I would only give VMware a higher rating. It's definitely at the top of my list in terms of technology in this area.

Simple to use, supports many different operating systems, and has good management features

What is our primary use case?

We are distributors and to meet with our clients' requirements, it supports many OS systems. It monitors and protects the entire system.

Pros and Cons

  • "Simplicity is the most valuable feature."
  • "When we need to share, publish, or encrypt something, we still need to perform it using the command line."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
