Customers are moving to open source and Red Hat is the leader in this particular space. I think customers feel more confident running Red Hat Virtualization than VMware.

Technically, the main reason why I'm using Red Hat is because of its stability.

The price is the solution's most valuable aspect. It's much cheaper than, for example, VMware.

Red Hat by itself is not scalable. But you can have third party add-ons like Ceph to make it massively scalable.

We'd like it if it would be possible on Red Hat Virtualization to possibly connect two or three VMs to the same disk.

When we do a direct comparison, then obviously VMware does better in terms of having Fault Tolerance and doing active disaster recovery and these kind of things. This is something that can be improved within Red Hat.

I heard that there are big differences between Red Hat eight and seven, but it's still quite difficult for me to judge it. I found it a bit more difficult to manage than version seven, which was much easier. In term of features, though, it is still not yet clear which is better. I have no clear idea of which features need to be changed at the moment.

It would be better to have more patches, especially kernel-level updates, live and online so that we can keep the business up and running during this period.

It lags behind in that you need to go to something like Fedora to get all the extra bells and whistles.

The support is tricky in a few places. We're facing some challenges within Malaysia where we don't really have the system integrators available who can provide extended support. When we need personnel on-site, we can't get them.

In comparison to VMware, this solution isn't as stable. We're testing it right now, and we're not trusting the stability of the product.
