Best VM software ever used

so far i run the controller on a serperated dedicated server, it runs stable and got almost weekly a update or bugfix this get applied with out downtime as it is on a differend server, and so far not a single update has failed even reboots are not needed and it dit not crash yet, so it is a stable system same for the node, i used other software in the past and this is so far the most stable software the nodes are still running fine with a uptime of almost a year also i dit not have any problems with creating vm's or starting/running them the gui can look a bit buggy ( specialy stats ) but in the end its the stability of the node that counts and that is what it does perfect for me.

Pros

This software is one of the best software i used, compared to other "free" software does VM Manager do what it was designed for the thing i love the most is how fast you can set it up, how easy it is to use multiple servers and how stable it runs under use also i love it that i can use a second controller just to control the software, it does not need to be on the same node but can be done on the same node i use the control panel on a local subnet connected to the nodes over there own 10Gbit line so migration can go smoothly and all systems stays operational, when the clients use the public ip to connect to there servers

Cons

there are some templates that you need to use, lately they added the ability to mount a iso but it is not like i am used to do as it is mainly template based is it limited to what you can do for example, resetting a windows password if your client forgot his password is almost not possible i use a custom iso for that case, but as the system does not allow to custom mount only for install is it a must to use the recovery console and use a other way to bypass the "security" also there price plans could be a bit cheaper , but that is just personal.

Reasons for Choosing VMmanager

they where all missing some functions and stability that i need for the system on a positive note it was all freeware at some point, so compared to a paid product they are not bad in the end it is worth to pay for good software if free software does not provide what you need other paid software still got there bugs or are expensive compared to VM Manager so in the end after a long search i ended with vm manger

Reasons for Switching to VMmanager

the above programs are not stable enough and dit not do what i want it to do some of them dit a better job at other things, but are missing stuff that i needed for example , i need a WHMCS plugin to control the vm from my billing system and most of those are missing that option Xenserver ( and xcp-ng ) was my first option, used it in the past but was barely stable lots of crashes and even data loss in the progress so i tried proxmox for some time proxmox got same problem , it was just not stable and was slow, and so does the list go on with there own problems ( manual install , no iso's , custom plugins needed, not stable ... ) until i desided to use VM Manager

VMmanager is a virtualization platform that does not know how to make backups correctly

A non-working backup system, there is no flexible ability to manage user rights

Pros

Interface, easy to install and configure

Cons

Primitive backup system (1 process for all nodes at the same time). I cannot make a full backup every day. A full backup of my cluster will take a week. I created a ticket for this issue. But more than half a year has passed and nothing has changed. Support admits that the backup system is primitive, but does nothing.

Reasons for Choosing VMmanager

I was promised that everything will work fine
