    Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI)

    With a substantial free tier, AWS is a solution for fast, reliable and secure access to tools and workflows for any project. AWS is still the most intimidating cloud solution to approach. While there is no shortage to power and solutions, it is not for the faint of heart. It is easy to get lost while using AWS though the solution is there. Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI) requires an IT manager with experience deploying applications and building databases. Comparably, Parallels is a much easier UI to navigate, along with many open source and free options.

    Red Hat Virtualization (RHV)

    RHEV is well suited for organizations that need a cost-effective and flexible solution for their environment. As its vendor-independent software, easily install on any type of hardware. RHEV provides a GUI interface to manage the software, which makes the management of the software easier for the end-user. RHEV is best for non-production or less critical applications. RHEV can be easily integrated with other REDHAT software.

    Pros

    Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI)

    • Quick, clean access to the VDI images.
    • Easy provisioning of images to use based on multiple criteria.
    • Integrating with our other products (AV/AM, productivity, etc.).

    Red Hat Virtualization (RHV)

    • RHV issues/bugs can be reported via Bugzilla to RH support. The service is great and typically responds soon.
    • Red Hat distribution integration is seamless as it is integrated into the kernel.
    • OpenStack support enables more customized VM templates and network configuration control.

    Cons

    Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI)

    • Copy and paste does not work well
    • The performance is degraded during the day being slow at the end of the journey
    • Some user interface issues displaying the page
    • Sometimes when I type a word a letter is pasted many [times]

    Red Hat Virtualization (RHV)

    • 1- RHVM API is pretty slow, especially after creating a VM it is not possible to retrieve the VM details (i.e VM's MAC Address) fast enough, where we need to place a pause in our Ansible Playbook, make the automation process slow.
    • 2- RHV is still using collected to monitor the hypervisors which is deviating from Red Hat policy for other RHEL based applications to use PCP to monitor, which is richer in features.
    • 3- It will be great if it is possible to patch the hypervisors using other tools such as satellite and not only via RHVM.
    • 4- In the past Red Hat used to present patches in the z release (i.e. 4.3.z), and features in the y release (i.e 4. y), but starting from 4.4 that is mixed together wherein the Z release you get both patches and features, that is not good because that requires a lot of time to test when we patch as it includes features as well.
    • 5- Engineering team has to be more reactive when new feature is requested.

    AWS support in general is pretty good, and WorkSpaces is no exception. We haven't had too much need for support but on the occasion we have, they've been quick to respond and helpful. Our issues have been resolved rapidly.

    Cisco AnyConnect is a VPN client and using a VPN can reduce the internet speed. It is not quite reliable as workspaces. Cisco AnyConnect is not at all optimised for linux machines. They suffer a lot from crashing and loss of internet speed. Workspaces works quite well even on linux machines

    Red Hat Virtualization (RHV)

    RHEV is an excellent product, includes more features, is less expensive, and has rock solid reliability and is backed with the best Red Hat Support in the industry. RHEV uses KVM under the hood which is used by all the big players in the industry (AWS, Rackspace, etc) to lower their overall costs and improve efficiency and profits and that's why RHEV is an excellent solution!

    Red Hat Virtualization (RHV)

    • RHEV has provided a positive ROI as our customers are not experiencing as many outages during maintenances.
    • We have not experienced any catastrophic failures as a result of vsphere losing connection to the ntp.
    • There has been a level of stability in our environment that was not previously experienced with our previous vendor.
