Overall Satisfaction with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization

we are using RHEV as a replacement for VSphere as a cheaper and better integration with KVM
  • Integrate with KVM
  • Python API is easier
  • integration with puppet and cobbler
  • better documentation on issues
  • Faster patch releases
  • better integration with OVA
  • Better integration with KVM
  • Better API
  • Automation is easier
RHEV is more stable than oVirt but less capability. Much easier to automate than esx
Well suited for a Linux based deployment utilizing KVM and needing a web interface. Most useful for people wanting to use an API to act against the hypervisor
