We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The scalability of the solution is very good."
"The most valuable aspects of the solution were the support and performance of the product and the flexibility it gives you to work."
"The solution's most valuable feature is its stability."
"I think VirtualBox has good stability because I use it in an environment with several resolutions."
"The solution is very stable."
"The initial setup was straightforward."
"This solution can be used on many different platforms including Windows and Linux."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to copy bidirectionally between the desktop and the virtual machine."
"I haven't faced any inconveniences working with this solution. It is very easy to use."
"The solution should work to simplify the system. However, it should be flexible enough to allow for special cases."
"The solution has to do a better job of promoting the product and its licensing capabilities."
"Oracle needs to improve its hot virtual machine migration. It didn't work as intended. It should allow us to migrate between virtual machines, without stopping the database."
"The technical support needs to improve."
"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 solution needs to improve its flexibility. It's not as flexible as VMware."
"The user interface needs to be improved."
"It should have the functionality where if I move the mouse away from one screen, the context changes automatically."
"The price should be reduced."
"The product is free to use."
"Everything is free within limitations. Once you go over a certain level of usage you have to license the product."
"It is pretty good for the price, which is free."
"This is an open-source product and it can be used free of charge."
