Valuable Features The most valuable features for us are HA, DRS, and SDRS. • Improvements to My Organization We have reduced our number of physical servers from 180 to 20, saving us cost and resources in our data center. • Room for Improvement I'd suggest improvements in a couple of areas.

The current version is very stable and offers all of the features we require from a virtualisation infrastructure platform. I am especially impressed with the self provision user portal and the performance of Spice as a remote desktop protocol, although it would be nice to have better client end support (OSX, IOS etc). One of the biggest lacking features is the ability to replicate virtual machine configurations to another RHEV environment for DR. Our development team addressed this by producing a python script which calls the REST API and replicates VM configuration allowing us to restore data into prebuilt VMs. Overall we...
