Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The whole solution is good. It has good tools that help me in managing the servers. It is also stable.""Proxmox is free, very stable, and doesn't require more resources for memory RAM. It's fine for a small data center.""The setup is very easy.""The initial setup is straightforward.""It is easy to deploy.""The solution is open source and free to use.""It has a good performance and you can cluster it.""The feature that I have found most valuable is that its storage container, LVM, and everything else work out of the box."

"It is easy to deal with when comes to application migration and its compatibility with the multiple component applications.""I can control and manage everything. I know everything that's cooking inside. This is the best part for me.""The price is the solution's most valuable aspect. It's much cheaper than, for example, VMware.""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.""The solution makes migration easy.""The solution is overall very good with all the facilities. It is user friendly, easy to configure, has documentation, and support is available.""This solution is very stable. Much more so than similar products.""There aren't any bugs on the solution."

Cons
"I can't speak to any improvements. It is not lacking features.""The product is still a little young so it is maturing, but new features are coming out all the time.""The facility of deployment is an area that needs to improve.""The initial setup has a pretty steep learning curve.""The only issue I have with Proxmox VE is updating it. You have to manually update it or you have to have a way to update it automatically.""We have only command lines for a management application to remove sites. The solution needs a proper GUI.""One issue with Proxmox is that some processes are not automatic. For some processes, you have to do it manually by command line.""Its performance and support can be improved. Currently, there is a cost for support."

"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.""Customers are not aware of this solution, they can improve by providing more awareness and solution availability.""The documentation is not as good as it should be.""The availability of technical expertise with the solution may be limited in some areas.""This solution could be more secure.""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.""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."
