I find the density of the product most valuable. It is density that a technologist can just assign page merging. This is what makes KVM one of the important players of the virtualization market.
The initial setup was simple.

The stability of this solution is less than other products in the same category.

We would like to have a software lifecycle solution included in this solution. We can handle the software needed for KVM, but also the software that we provide. A lifecycle component would be very beneficial.

The solution should be more user friendly. We are struggling with the command lines.
