Use of Solution

I have used this solution for three years.

Stability Issues

We have not encountered stability issues with the newer versions.

Scalability Issues

I have not encountered any issues with scalability.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Overall, technical support is good, but sometimes due to the complexity of the request, the support gets delayed and transferred to R&D late in the process.

Initial Setup

Initial setup was straightforward. It was easy to implement.

Other Solutions Considered

We evaluated CA LISA, Parasoft, and IBM GreenHat before choosing this product.

Other Advice

Work together with the Dev and Test teams. Understand what your needs are before you virtualize everything. There’s no benefit to virtualize everything: Analyze, design the solutions, and then start virtualizing.
