Pivotal Cloud Foundry Review

A solution that offers excellent scalability with easy setup that comes at a reasonable price point


What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for deploying web applications manually and connecting with databases.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of the solution is its ability to scale. The services that connect to the database are also very good.

What needs improvement?

In the next release, they should offer additional applications for the databases, and improve the deployment experience. 

They should offer more information to consultants in the form of tips and other details to help them better understand the product.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for 1.5 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable. Sometimes it shows some downtime, but I'm relatively satisfied.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is excellent. It's very important to us. Right now, we aren't using the solution too much, but in the coming months, we do plan to increase usage.

How are customer service and technical support?

We haven't needed to contact technical support at all.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I have experience with and have used other solutions in the past.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very easy. Deployment takes maybe half a day.

What about the implementation team?

I handled the implementation myself.

What was our ROI?

I haven't seen an ROI yet, but I haven't invested a lot of time into the solution yet either.

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

Licensing is on a monthly basis and right now we pay $24/month. There are no other costs over and above that.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate the solution nine out of ten.
