Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure Room for Improvement

Head SDWAN SBU at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees

The licensing policy needs to be improved. They have a licensing policy based on the number of CPU sockets. Nowadays what has happened is that the license they are trying to move is based on the number of CPU cores. With the advancement in technology there are now more cores in a single CPU. It's been very challenging in terms of managing the license around everything. Today we have a processor with 24 and 32 cores on the same physical CPU.

I would like to see the inter-operative ability of different hyper-converged platforms. For example, Nutanix came out with a VM platform where you would be able to manage a couple of workloads on the cloud as well. I would like to see the same from Red Hat where users could not only manage direct hyper-convergence from their end but at the same time have a couple of workloads on AWS, Azure, and/or Google. 

Seamless migration of one workload to another would be ideal.

It is not user-friendly, and it is very difficult to operate. You have to have a deep understanding of the technical details of the infrastructure to implement it. When you compare it with VMware, it is totally different because the graphical user interface is not that easy to understand. It is not intuitive. To use it, you have to read a lot of documentation and even understand what is going on behind the solution. It is not for someone who has a little bit of knowledge.

Currently, it is too complex. I need something that is easy to implement. It should have a basic configuration as well as a complex configuration.

The main issue is the initial investment. It is an expensive product, and it should be cheaper.

It should also be easier to use and manage. The professional service for this solution is quite complex and expensive.

It should be more user-friendly, in my opinion.

The cloud deployment could be improved. I also don't believe there is VDS support either.
