Cloudify Review

Supports the OASIS TOSCA blueprint.

What is most valuable?

  • Good OASIS TOSCA blueprint support
  • Extensibility
  • Multi-platform nature

How has it helped my organization?

It has enabled us to create the DICE Deployment Service. It also simplified deployment of any other services (monitoring, continuous integration, etc.).

What needs improvement?

It would be great if it would start supporting Ubuntu 16.04 or newer.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used it since spring 2015.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

There were some issues with deploying the solution on OpenStack Mitaka. However, we were able to resolve them.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not encountered any stability issues. Since version 3.4.0, the solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No scalability issues so far.

How is customer service and technical support?

Very responsive and helpful support through mailing lists and groups.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was fairly straightforward though following the documentation.

What about the implementation team?

We have an in-house team.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also evaluated Brooklyn and Alien4Cloud. None of them offered stable TOSCA blueprint support.
