Windows Server Review

Good stability and feature-rich, but the integration with other operating systems should be improved


What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is its stability. We have had no problems with Windows Server and we plan to continue using it in the future.

This product has very good features.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better integration with other operating systems. For example, when I migrate from services from Linux or Unix to Windows Server, it's hard to do. I expect it to be easier.

For how long have I used the solution?

We began using Windows Server between 10 and 12 years ago.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable product. We have more than 150 people in 20 different groups who use it. In my personal group, we have four people.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not faced any problems that we couldn't solve, so we have not needed to contact technical support.

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

I have worked with other operating systems such as Linux and Unix, and I find that they are more complicated.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. It takes between two and four hours to deploy, depending on the type of service.

What about the implementation team?

We installed it ourselves and we have an IT staff of about six people that use it regularly.

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

We have a corporate deal with Microsoft and pay licensing fees annually. It is an expensive product.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this is a good product that is easy to use, it has very good features, and I can recommend it.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
