It's scalable. Whenever we buy another product other than hardware, it's easily integrated into the virtualization software that we download.

It's in English, so its exceptional qualities make the control environment more flexible, easier, more stable, and easy to recover after issues.

If it could actually virtualize the entire platform it might be better. If you're having more than one virtualization technology, maybe there's a way to actually have less - one technology to run the data center and maybe one special virtualization for power. If it integrated with other platforms more effectively it might be better.
