I would like to see an improvement in the virtualization itself. We use the physical servers for easier migrations, but the virtualization can be better.

The backup solution is a little bit slow and sometimes sluggish on the restore side. It takes a little bit of time, but that could also be the fault of the hardware. 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 installation could definitely be easier. For the vendor, if the solution offered better information, they would have more users on it. The solution should implement something that enables me to at least get an overview of the loads and the statuses of the machines and applications from my cell phone. An app for mobile management would be great.

If this solution could import directly from OVS format then it would make migration much easier. Not many people know about this product, so bulletins and advertising should be done to make people more aware of it.

I would like to see more monitoring in the next release of this solution. Currently, it's simple structured monitoring.

The solution needs a better billing system.

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

This solution needs a more flexible and efficient backup solution in the dashboard. The capacity for integrating deployment through WAN is needed. Something like a Federation tool for Central monitoring and management. UPS supervision integration would be a nice feature because right now this has been integrated by ourselves using another tool that is not on the platform.

IMPORTANT - use separate physical network for Corosync/Heartbeat functions. This is obscure in the documentation - but you'll find it.

Mostly simplify web interface, simple things like the use of right mouse button to change VM attributes, make it more intuitive, but it is just cosmetic improvements, the core functions are all there. Support for Docker are missing, it can be usefull nowadays .
