The feature that I have found most valuable is that its storage container, LVM, and everything else work out of the box.

It is easier to balance loads across hypervisors if a given container or virtual machine uses more resources than its peers.

We had some challenges with management including volume and storage management. Setting it up properly and making it work, specifically shared storage between the virtual machines, is difficult.

The solution should include some features that can help with converting raw files into different formats. It should offer better management around raw files.

It would be nice to have total CPU and RAM allocations show for all VMs/CTs to avoid overloading an individual hypervisor.
Separate physical network for Corosync/Heartbeat should be emphasized in the Quick Start or Getting Started documentation.
