Good high availability, easy to scale, and pretty stable overall

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for everything Microsoft-related for the most part. I would say our visualization platform is about 99.5% of all our workload from a Microsoft point of view

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution has high availability."
  • "The biggest pain point is probably the firmware management of the underlying hardware. It could be a lot better."

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers. We are a little behind the latest version, which I believe is 7.1. We're using 6.5 for the most part. We still have a little bit of a legacy in 5.5, however, that is just hardware related. It doesn't support the newer version. We trying to rectify that as soon as possible. I would recommend the solution to other companies. Overall, I would rate the solution nine out of ten.

Easy to use, stable, and reasonably priced

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use the solution to build a machine and transfer it to vCenter. I also occasionally use it to transform from a VirtualBox machine to an ESXi machine.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is very convenient and easy to use."
  • "The solution needs to improve the methods used for starting and stopping the machine."

What other advice do I have?

We're just Oracle customers. We don't have any business relationship with the solution. We're using the latest version of the solution. While I can recommend the solution for personal use, in a professional context, I've never actually tried it. A company would have to do some research first to ensure it fits their needs. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten overall if I was rating it on personal use alone.

Provides speed and stability; could integrate better into two in ones

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case was running an entire government payroll system.

Pros and Cons

  • "Stability and speed are the most valuable aspects."
  • "It lags behind in that you need to go to something like Fedora to get all the extra bells and whistles."

What other advice do I have?

I've always used separate hypervisors so it's difficult for me to give advice. I'm more familiar with the other products so I would rate this product a six out of 10.
