We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The feature that I have found most valuable is that its storage container, LVM, and everything else work out of the box.Less infrastructure required; simple to use.Ease of use, HA, internal 100gbps Virtio network, built-in backup (don't pay $1200 Veeam licence), support for multi-monitors on multiple VMs in KVM, no need to RDP in the VMs to do your stuff (Win, Linux and Mac with SPICE and using 6 screens here (11520*2160).The initial setup was really straightforward and easy.The most valuable feature of this solution is migration.The solution is easy to install. It can run on a lot of different types of hardware. Creating virtual machines with it is really easy.The solution allows for easy integrations.The most valuable feature of this solution is performance.

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.Red Hat is the most stable system.

Cons
It could have more security updates such as when a new threat is coming into market.Lacking in enterprise features.The Windows drivers could be easier (unlike manually installing Ballon, QEMU and optionally SPICE, VIRTio, etc.)The virtualization can be better.If this solution could import directly from OVS format then it would make migration much easier.We had some challenges with management including volume and storage management. Setting it up properly and making it work, specifically shared storage between the virtual machines, is difficult.The solution needs a better billing system.I would like to see more monitoring in the next release of this solution.

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.The Administration of the Oracle database and the SAP ERP needs improvement.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Zero - this is a free solution.Proxmox is free software, but if you prefer the support and a more rested repository then you can pay for it.An excellent choice for budget sensitive operations.​The cost is excellent.
