One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable. It is great. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a highly scalable solution for our infrastructure. We have over 1000 people using this solution. They are using a computer system which has authentication, uses an active directory setup, with corresponding credentials. They are also accessing other software and central data storage for their file and storage management systems. Additionally, they are using a web application and database management solution for their specific role.

How is customer service and technical support?

Tech support is helpful.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. Our deployment took six months. We did research and development for almost two months through the deployment of the production environment. We used an integrator for the deployment. They also provided technical support throughout the process. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is a very cost-effective solution.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I looked at Hyper-V prior to choosing this solution. After testing it, we chose the Oracle solution instead.
