We primarily use the solution for hosting virtual machines. We're using RHEV virtualization and Red Hat on top of it.

The primary use of this solution is to implement ERP. If you want to have multiple servers on the same machine or if you do not require multiple machines it supports kernel-based virtual machines.

For any application that requires 100% uptime, 100% of data accessibility, I use these servers. Within our organization, there are roughly 100 employees using this solution.

Enterprise Virtualization is for specific customers. We are an integrator and we have some customers who want to have in their data center or in their office a virtualization solution. This solution is perfect for that type of client.

In my company, I am working in a strategic department. My primary task in the company at the present time is looking into an overall roadmap for our organization to adopt a virtualization solution. We are doing this mostly for cost optimization. So I am exploring the potential benefits of different solutions and what the potential options are for us to minimize and optimize the costs and our overall tax expenditures by bringing in these VMware solutions. Our goal is hosting multiple applications within one single host. The purpose is to reduce the number of physical servers and then to move from a physical to a virtual environment. This is the reason that we introduced the VMware solution. So VMware is basically purely on the virtual environment that we have adopted because we are moving out from a physical environment to a virtual environment where we have deployed some VMware licenses to manage our various systems applications on one single host. Of course, VMware is not an OS by itself. When it comes to the operating system, we are leveraging on the Red Hat virtual environment to be able to run and support the integration of multiple systems. So the VMware is being used to host the virtual environment. We have actually a combination of both Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and VMware virtualization solutions to create the needed environment to meet these goals.

We have been using RHEV in both on-premises and cloud deployments for testing. In my team, we don't have access to a paid version of Red Hat. Instead, we mostly use CentOS and Ubuntu.

We have several applications that are pillars of the business, such as ERP and SAP, which were previously in a Windows environment. Our system architects have been working on moving these applications to a Linux environment. This is why we are using this solution. At the point, all of our work with Red Hat is on-premises.

There has to be more effort into closing the security vulnerabilities in this solution because we are facing daily attacks. We would like to have this done faster. We would like to see live-patching on the systems, without having to require a reboot. It would be better to have more patches, especially kernel-level updates, live and online so that we can keep the business up and running during this period. Improvements can be made to managing this solution, such as enhancements to the GUI. There should be better integration with third-party tools. Tools for scanning the hardware, such as the CPU and memory, would make life easier.

The GUI interface needs improvement. Not 90%, but 50% or 60% of the work is done from the command line and so on, so the GUI needs work because people are looking for an easier way to manage the environment. Right now, if someone is not very familiar with Red Hat and actually is looking to add Red Hat to the environment, they have to take some training. It needs to be easier to use. The solution could use network virtualization.
