There aren't any bugs on the solution.What they provide is way beyond the essential requirements of customers.It is easy to deal with when comes to application migration and its compatibility with the multiple component applications.The solution makes migration easy.The price is the solution's most valuable aspect. It's much cheaper than, for example, VMware.Stability and speed are the most valuable aspects.The most valuable feature of this solution is the support portal.Technically, the main reason why I'm using Red Hat is because of its stability.

Cons
The solution needs to improve the methods used for starting and stopping the machine.This should have better support for multiple network cards and some parts of the GUI should be improved.It could improve slightly with enhanced reporting capabilities that show the current status of the network.The solution needs to improve its flexibility. It's not as flexible as VMware.It should have the functionality where if I move the mouse away from one screen, the context changes automatically.The user interface needs to be improved.The solution should have more enterprise features, like migration, high availability storage, disaster recovery, and the ability to deploy to enterprise-scale usage. They should not just offer desktop usage.The technical support needs to improve.

We'd like it if it would be possible on Red Hat Virtualization to possibly connect two or three VMs to the same disk.Red Hat by itself is not scalable. But you can have third party add-ons like Ceph to make it massively scalable.The availability of technical expertise with the solution may be limited in some areas.The support is tricky in a few places. We're facing some challenges within Malaysia where we don't really have the system integrators available who can provide extended support. When we need personnel on-site, we can't get them.In comparison to VMware, this solution isn't as stable. We're testing it right now, and we're not trusting the stability of the product.It lags behind in that you need to go to something like Fedora to get all the extra bells and whistles.Configuring the network interfaces is much better in Ubuntu and should be improved.I heard that there are big differences between Red Hat eight and seven, but it's still quite difficult for me to judge it. I found it a bit more difficult to manage than version seven, which was much easier. In term of features, though, it is still not yet clear which is better. I have no clear idea of which features need to be changed at the moment.
