What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is hyper-converged.

We have a private cloud deployment.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is integration.

What needs improvement?

The virtual machine configuration for networking should be improved.

There should be more functionality available for routing.

I would like to see better integration with other services because it can be difficult to merge into the environment.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for about a year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I think that stability is good for small and mid-level environments, but I don't think that it is suitable for high-end.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is great. You can increase size, which is good.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support for this solution is pretty good. They have provided us support when needed.

How was the initial setup?

When you are setting this solution up in a test environment then it is straightforward. However, when you have to combine it with the customer's hardware then it can be tricky sometimes.

The deployment took about one month.

What about the implementation team?

We used a consultant to assist with the deployment.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also evaluated a solution by Cisco.

What other advice do I have?

This solution is good for small-end businesses, but for high-level business, you may have to evaluate other solutions.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
