Windows Server Review

Straightforward to set up and stable, but the administration is complicated

What is our primary use case?

We use these servers for databases and applications.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the ESRP that is used with the Windows Platform.

What needs improvement?

Windows Platforms become rather complicated. We started with the Windows Platform because they simplified it, but now, it has become quite complicated.

The administration has become quite heavy and also the specialization. 

We are a rather small factory, not a big system. We are small with a thousand employees, and we need a simplified environment.

In the next release, I would like to see the administration simplified.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Windows Server for more than 20 years. 

The version we are using is quite new, 2020.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Windows Server is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable, but the administration becomes quite complicated.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not used the technical support, we have had contact with the third-party partners.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup of Windows Server is straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

In our country, the Windows platform is widespread, which means there is a high amount of usage. We primarily use Windows Solutions. Some also use Linux, but Linux is the minority.

I would rate Windows Server a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
