Windows Server Review

Reliable, easy to use and maintain, but the licensing could be better

What is our primary use case?

We are using Windows Server locally for our DNS.

We are implementers, and we perform this service for our clients.

How has it helped my organization?

Our company is an ISP (Internet Service Provider). Windows Server is not directly used for internal purposes, but as our product for our external customers.

What is most valuable?

We chose Windows Server because it is easy to use, and easy to maintain.

What needs improvement?

The license model needs improvement. It would be better if the license had a longer lifetime.

This may be a feature that is already in place, but I like to see a monitoring feature for the desktop.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Windows Server for approximately three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution. Its stability is one of the reasons we decided to adopt Windows Server.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have not yet experienced the scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is pretty good.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is pretty straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend this solution to others who are interested in using it.

I would rate Windows Server a seven out of ten.
