The most valuable feature would be the ease of deployment. That is the most significant feature for me because I've worked with multiple vendors and it's always been very complicated to install the software and get everything running.

Single click actions is definitely the most important. They were not even aware that they wanted this.

I can use VMware or Hyper-V license, if I already have. But if I use a similar solution as Nutanix Acropolis hypervisor (AHV) that comes embedded in Nutanix solution, I can manage all my virtual environments with everything I need without spend more money on licenses.

The level of statistical performance data that it can confirm in real-time is extremely useful. I can see what my VM’s hosts and guests are doing from a single pane of glass and identify issues before they would otherwise become apparent.

If we can have certified compatibility with other companies, such as Oracle, then it would let us know that they function correctly together.

They have offered some new features that I have not deployed so I assume that these issues might have been addressed already, but, at my time there was a networking problem.

If they can simplify the software slightly for the installation, that would make all the difference.

AHV is a great hypervisor but still limited compared to VMware. AHV is the one product they must improve.
