Overall Satisfaction with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Desktops

It is currently being used in our department and we will be making the switch soon from VMware which is currently deployed. It is a really efficient VDI solution and we may end up using it for more departments prior to full enterprise wide deployment. So far it has been really reliable and easy to use with its control via the Web UI and no need for an installed application.
  • Extremely reliable
  • Easy to maintain in regards to upgrades
  • RedHat has done a great job for added customization
  • Open-source so has to be awesome
  • Great end-user experience
  • Well done on the Live migration
  • Saw minor issues during first boot and configuration of VM's
  • I doubt its a con but you need decent Linux skills to work with this
  • Could improve and make more user-friendly in terms of UI
  • Replacement costs are high for employee PC hardware and such a product has helped cut down costs and will continue to do so once deployed across more departments
  • Increased availability and manageability
If you're looking for a reliable open-source VDI solution then this maybe the product for you and your organization, the live migration and exceptional end user experience are really well done. Its other features such as USB support, efficient desktop pooling, snapshot features, load balancing and many more are implemented in its competitors as well but are better managed here in my honest opinion.
