Open source, stable, easy to use, and it has good community support

What is our primary use case?

We are at a University and use this solution for teaching and research.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are that it's free and that it is simple to use.

What needs improvement?

It could be easier for beginners and the user interface could be more user-friendly.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Ubuntu Linux since it's existence, which has been approximately 20 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable. We use it on our laptops and we deploy it in our virtual machines. We are pleased with it.

We plan to keep using this product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable operating system.

We have approximately 2,000 students and teachers using it.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is quite good. It's a large community with many tutorials and books available.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we had used many other operating systems such as CentOS, SUSE Linux, and a few other operating systems based on Linux.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

It only took a few minutes to install.

What about the implementation team?

We did not use an integrator or vendor team. We have a team of 10 technicians who can help if someone doesn't know how to install it. Most users can install it themselves.

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

It's an open-source solution that can be used free of charge.

What other advice do I have?

Ubuntu and Linux, in general, are very common operating systems. Many people have knowledge of it. There is a large community of people who can tell you what is needed and tell you about the bugs it may have. They can contribute because it is open source.

It is a good product and one that I recommend.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
