I would not recommend this solution. There are a couple of other solutions that are easy to manage and install, and they are also not expensive. We plan to keep selling this solution, but we are not 100% sure. I would rate Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure a four out of ten.

Currently, we are using just three machines at our site, and I don't know if my company is using it at other sites or planning to increase its usage. It seems very complex to manage the infrastructure. I would rate Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure a seven out of ten because of the implementation and integration issues.

On a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of ten.

I have been using Red Hat and there is a small hyper-converged solution called Zero Stack which I also use. We're in discussions with Red Hat in India to have some sort of enterprise agreement with them in the future. I'd recommend Red Hat to others. I'd rate it nine out of ten.

My advice to those considering this solution is that they should get what they actually need. Red Hat is a big company and it is quite flexible in the kind of environment they support. There are other products we are aware of and tried, but they failed to support our application running on top of them. With the Red Hat KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine), we could play the tricks we needed to more easily to get our application to work. KVM was the key. On a scale from one to ten where ten is the best, I would rate this product as maybe a seven. It is not bad, but it is not perfect.
