SQL Server Review

An easy initial setup with good pricing and good stability

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as a WAP server and we have it on-premises.

How has it helped my organization?

It's helped us connect to our company's machines.

What is most valuable?

The pricing of the product is very good.

We've found the stability to be very reliable.

The initial setup isn't too complicated. It's pretty straightforward.

What needs improvement?

Overall, the solution could be improved in future releases. We hope to improve the way we use it ourselves in our next project.

The solution could offer better integration with other solutions - specifically Microsoft.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for about five years at this point. It'd been a while.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Thus far, the solution has been quite stable. It doesn't crash or freeze. there aren't bugs or glitches. It works well for us overall and we find it to be reliable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I'm not sure about the capability of the solution's scalability. We've never really tested its capabilities, and it's therefore hard to gauge.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have a department that handles support. I find them knowledgeable. They respond in a reasonable amount of time. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup wasn't complex. It was pretty straightforward. We didn't have any issues with the implementation process at all.

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

The licensing is reasonable. It's not too expensive. We are charged on a yearly basis, however, I don't know the exact amount we are charged. I'm not a part of the billing and payments department.

What other advice do I have?

I believe we are using the 2019 version of the solution.

In general, I would recommend the solution to other organizations. We've mostly been pretty happy with its performance.

We're not Microsoft partners. We are just customers.

Overall, I would rate the solution eight out of ten. If it had better integration capabilities with Microsoft, I might rate it higher.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
