The user interface I find to be lacking. If you compare it with VMware or Hyper-V, you have lots of room for improvement. I think that VirtualBox should be more user-friendly. View full review »

One of the things that we need, because with LeVAULT we control the authentication layer, and we support multiple factors for authentication - anywhere from four to 27 factors - and we allow you to be able to raise your key's devices, as keys to authenticate, as one of the factors. We're working with them to be able to allow the local USB ports to be ported over to the remote desktop, running VirtualBox. We didn't talk about the capability of improving playing video, and being able to download; and streaming. View full review »

The communications setup lags. It does not connect properly so the batching and networking is a bit slow. The networking needs to be a bit more robust. Also, it continues to upgrade itself, and I would like an option to switch this off because it causes slowdowns for the network. In addition, I think that there should be some separate bits of software to install to make it communicate better with Windows. There should be a default installation to do this. View full review »

I think part of the reason is, is a lot of people do not trust Virtual Box because they think it's buggy. It seems to be a theme here. I got into it and it was buggy enough that I didn't want to continue using it. View full review »

It's not as robust as server platforms, nor does it need to be. View full review »
