"Nutanix AHV's most valuable feature is NetFlow."
"You don't need any other instruments for control, AHV. You only need to look at the prism to control all infrastructure."
"The entirety of the infrastructure resides in the same product, which makes it easy to troubleshoot and investigate problems."
"For our markets here in Morocco, we are mainly working with server virtualization, and the most valuable feature is the software-defined storage and hyper-converged infrastructure."
"The solution is user-friendly and provides good virtual machine backups. The user interface gets updated when there is a new release."
"Using AHV, we have a built-in VR solution. It operates using a reduplication-based unique package transfer process."
"The most valuable feature is manageability."
"The installation is easy."
"I like that it is free and runs on Linux/Ubuntu - I wouldn't use any other solution. I am able to perform small developing tests."
"It's a pretty good product in terms of monitoring."
"This product is very user-friendly and easy to use."
"Oracle VM Virtualbox is easy to use and does not require much training."
"The snapshot feature is very powerful; it protects us from disaster."
"Oracle VM VirtualBox is easy to use."
"It's very simple to use."
"My storage use is doubled; if I am creating a one TB virtual machine then my storage policy will take two TB from my cluster."
"VMware does tend to have more features than AHV. It's more of the leader in this space."
"Adding even more integrations would be an improvement."
"A lot of tasks cannot be performed using the GUI, the graphical interface."
"It worked well in the beginning but after using it for some time, we found some limitations in terms of compatibility with other software."
"The solution could improve the call logging system to HPE, it is a bit tedious."
"If you have the need for special hardware like FibreChannel-Cards or such and there is no networked-way around it (such as you could work with USB Dongles via an HW-Dongle-Server of network), you have to use a separate hypervisor."
"The software based controller has high consumption. This could be improved."
"The user interface needs to be improved."
"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."
"I find the solution to be incredibly unstable, constantly falling over and not working properly."
"It has some issues when you have some weird device drivers. For instance, when you have a weird sound driver working on your machine, and the VirtualBox needs to output the sound of the virtual machine into the sound driver of the physical machine, the bare metal, it doesn't work too well. If you tweak lots of drivers and play around with the different kinds of drivers and machines, you will probably break something. I have not played with it too much and maybe it already supports it, but it would probably be good to have the ability to use a container from the virtual machine environment instead of spinning off a complete virtual machine. There are other tools for that. On Linux, you have a DXE, LXC framework, and you have Docker as well. Docker is good because it is multi-platform, and you can run Docker on pretty much anything, even different processors, but it would be good if we had a VirtualBox running on it while spinning off containers instead of full virtual machines. The other thing that will become important, and I'm pretty sure that they are thinking about it as well is that there's this new hardware platform that Apple is releasing, which is an ARM-based new chip. So, VirtualBox will probably have to work on ARM-based CPUs as well."
"Basically, the GUI and command-line interface need improvement."
"Oracle VM VirtualBox is not flexible, It's not like VMware."
"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."
"There are a few bugs that need to be updated."
