What is most valuable?

The valuable features of this solution are that it's open source, non-proprietary, and we can do just about anything we want to with the codes. There are no legal issues stopping us and of course Red Hat is rock solid and very stable.

What needs improvement?

What do you think of Oracle VM VirtualBox?

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for virtualization. This is a private cloud deployment model.

What needs improvement?

This solution is not enterprise-ready. The user interface needs to be improved.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We also use Proxmox VE, which is better in many ways aside from the networking and not being able to install unless it is a 64-bit architecture.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
