Windows Server Review

Supports all kinds of applications but needs better stability

What is most valuable?

Windows Server can be used for any kind of application. It is an operating system that supports enterprise applications. There is no application that doesn't go with Windows.

What needs improvement?

It could be more stable. Windows has certain problems that Unix platforms don't have. It requires more administrative effort as compared to Unix. I don't know why Microsoft has not changed that. It generates a lot of trash data, so slowly and steadily, you find more and more space being utilized. There is some kind of administrative load, which doesn't happen with Unix.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for many years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable, but its stability can be better.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have a maximum of 50 or 60 users. 

How are customer service and technical support?

We didn't use their support much. 

How was the initial setup?

It was very easy to install. The time period for installation depends on the complexity. If we want to simply install with the default option, it doesn't take much time. If you want to enable all of the service options that Windows provides, such as SNMP, it will take longer. If you have to install IAS and all such things, it will take time.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. We plan to keep using it.

I would rate Windows Server a seven out of ten.
