Overall Satisfaction with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Desktops

This was used in an organisation which I was working for, using a client-server architecture. This led to a more consistent environment and prevented *snowflake* desktops, which could be hard to diagnose issues on and provide support for. This also increased security and ultimately ended up saving a significant amount money for the company.
  • Standardisation where provisioning the environment became repeatable and predictable.
  • Easier debugging and understanding the client system.
  • Improved security and centrally managed.
  • Ran into a regression when updating firmware for IGEL
  • Desktop froze and became non responsive on a few occasions.
  • Server crashed and took down all the clients in the Thin setup.
  • Positive effect in that it saves money on support and debugging client machines.
  • Faster to fix bugs and debug user issues.
  • Amazon WorkSpaces
  • Red Hat Enterprise is more expensive but better supported when it comes to support.
  • Amazon WorkSpaces had more online documentation and resources to scan through.
  • Well suited for very large organisations with a wide variety of departments.
  • Less useful for a single group of developers where the command line is mostly used.
