We use Red Hat Desktop Virtualization to manage both our servers and desktops

What do you like best?

We use Red Hat Desktop Virtualization in an environment where we need to access both servers and desktops from a single workstation. This product allows us configure the amount of resources the virtual server or desktop receives based on the needs of those using the server/workstation.

What do you dislike?

The configuration can be a little daunting for those new to running virtual servers, but once my team and I got a little practice of setting up the servers we became quite proficient at the creation and deployment of the servers/workstations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend this product if you need to dynamically manage the resources available to virtual servers and workstations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We run multiple servers off of the same hardware, but need to keep the actual servers from interfering with each other.

As an Enterprise Architet, I deal with the virtualization capabilities of Red Hat on a daily basis.

What do you like best?

Red Hat allows for an easy, standardized image to be quickly applied into our cloud environment; typically in less than an hour. This allows us to provide prompt delivery of approved, architected solutions for our user community. The users can get their applications up and running in a day versus several weeks using a standard process.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, more specialized needs are cumbersome to implement into a cloud environment, often requiring multiple phases, which slows down the delivery SLA for the user community.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get the Red Hat virtualization, your customers and users will be thrilled a=by the delivery responsiveness.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Red Hat virtualization allows us to quickly implement and adjust environments for our users so that they can implement their development, testing and production environment with the minimum delay. This speedy turn-around makes for 'happier' customers and improved delivery of mission critical applications,

Exciting but lacks respect

What do you like best?

Ease of use

Troubleshooting is a lot easier given you have some experience with Linux.

Customization is easier.

What do you dislike?

You need someone with Linux experience to use this.

Constant comparison with VMWare products/features.

Rate at which features and product is getting matured.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It gets most of your virtualization related work done. If you have some experience on Linux then supporting/hosting the software is easy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I help solve customer problems. Most of the times at least in India, customer interest on RHEV is for dev,/test environment.

Unless RedHat finds better way to market its product its difficult for folks like me to make a customer believe in the product..

Some of the popular requests have been around.

Security, Connectivity, HA and DR.

easy, fast, open, and cost-effective Desktop Virtualization

What do you like best?

It is very simple to migrate [virtual machines] from other hypervisor platforms into REV.

In addition to the desktop virtualization, REV 2.2 introduces a number of other new features. Chief among them is the ability to import virtual machines from platforms, such as those offered by VMware, Citrix and Microsoft. To this end, REV uses the Open Virtualization Format (OVF), an open standard for virtual machine images. This is also the first release to include the V2V virtual machine conversion software, which can convert VMware or Xen virtual machines created within Red Hat Enterprise Linux into KVM virtual machines.

REV also includes a data warehouse for monitoring the performance and usage of virtual machines, the data from which can be piped into most other SQL-based business intelligence tools.

What do you dislike?

Security and performance is a challenge for this product. the interface could be more friendly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

no special recommendations.

Red Hat provides a complete virtualization solution for Desktops

What do you like best?

I like the innovative idea that Red Hat came up with virtualization of the Desktops. The desktop virtualization is the complete open source solution that no vendor dependency is there. The performance is super for the windows and linux users. Due to this high performance we can be confident that it will power our virtual machine workloads. The cost is at the lower end so it affordable to everyone. The the enterprise features are present in this virtual desktop solution.

What do you dislike?

Nothing much to dislike like the initial stages it more risky with security and storage. since we put more VMs for one host, if the host machine breaks we need to take out more VM servers outage for an application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

defintely recommend it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Entire enterprise applications are run on the virtual servers. The performance and utilization of resources considerably went to optimum levels with this virtual server concept.
