"This product is very user-friendly and easy to use."
"The solution is very convenient and easy to use."
"The pause feature is valuable. I can pause, which is something that not all hypervisors allow. The snapshot feature is also valuable."
"The good thing is that it is multi-platform. Once you create a virtual machine in one particular environment, you can switch over to see if you can run it in other environments. For example, if you are on Windows and you create this virtual machine, you can actually go ahead and change the operating system. You can switch it over to Linux or Mac OS and see if you can run the VirtualBox on those particular machines. It even runs on some of the commercial operating systems that are not mainstream, such as Solaris and BSD. These kinds of operating systems are also supported by VirtualBox. The other thing that is good about VirtualBox is that it is open source. So, if you need to do any modifications for your own purposes, you can just download the source, modify it, and deploy it in your environment. It is pretty good and very versatile. You can create and manipulate virtual machines from the command line, which is also very important. It's something that some other products on the desktop side do not have. VMware Fusion and Parallels Desktop don't have a good command-line interface to create and manipulate virtual machines, whereas VirtualBox has it out of the box, which is pretty good."
"It's a pretty good product in terms of monitoring."
"The solution has high performance and is easy to use."
"The snapshot feature is very powerful; it protects us from disaster."
"Oracle VM VirtualBox is easy to use."
"I can control and manage everything. I know everything that's cooking inside. This is the best part for me."
"It is easy to deal with when comes to application migration and its compatibility with the multiple component applications."
"The price is the solution's most valuable aspect. It's much cheaper than, for example, VMware."
"There aren't any bugs on the solution."
"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."
"This solution is very stable. Much more so than similar products."
"What they provide is way beyond the essential requirements of customers."
"The solution makes migration easy."
"The solution could be more user-friendly."
"The AI and the UI could be improved. The user interface is a little outdated and the AI is not very attractive."
"The memory and hardware usage could be a little bit lighter. Right now, it's quite heavy on the usage. The CPU usage should be lower."
"Oracle VM VirtualBox is not flexible, It's not like VMware."
"The solution needs to improve the methods used for starting and stopping the machine."
"When I select the Ubuntu operating system from within the virtual machine, it sometimes hangs."
"I find the solution to be incredibly unstable, constantly falling over and not working properly."
"It would be good if we could use Hyper-V Windows subsystems with Linux and VirtualBox on the same instance. Currently, to be able to use VirtualBox, we have to restart the machine into an instance of Windows where Hyper-V is disabled, which is understandably very inconvenient."
"Red Hat by itself is not scalable. But you can have third party add-ons like Ceph to make it massively scalable."
"We hope that Red Hat can produce a paradigm edition. We are looking for paradigm computing and paradigm storage. Its scalability can be improved. It is not easy to scale, and we hope that Red Hat can provide a more scalable system. They should also provide local service and support. Our customers are looking for a good software vendor to provide professional services."
"The availability of technical expertise with the solution may be limited in some areas."
"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."
"The documentation is not as good as it should be."
"Customers are not aware of this solution, they can improve by providing more awareness and solution availability."
"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."
