We require a building feature to integrate with other solutions.""This is very simple in OpenShift. We are happy with vCloud in terms of the virtualization but not for redundancy and distribution.""The product could use a billing feature so we can automate billing for clients.""In the next release, we would like to see improvements with the pricing. It could be reduced.""Lacks integration with the hyperscalers."
