3. OpenStack Cinder Allows configuration of Ceph storage domains via OpenStack Cinder. Requires vSAN.
4. Licensing Subscription model includes product, all upgrades / versions, and technical support. Requires vCenter license + support, vSphere License + support, and there may be license compatibility issues across versions.
5. Easy to Migrate Migrate workloads from VMware to Red Hat Virtualization via a simple GUI. No out-of-the-box migration options.
