Windows Server Review

A simple solution that's easy to use and has okay stability


What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as a database.

What is most valuable?

The product, overall, is very simple. It's easy to use and navigate. It's got a good design.

The implementation is very easy. It doesn't give you any trouble.

What needs improvement?

The stability is okay, however, it could be better. It's an area that they could improve on if they wanted to.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for two years at this point.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is somewhere in between good and bad. It's so-so. It could be better. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have 15 people that use the solution, and five engineers that manage everything as necessary.

We do plan to continue to use the product going forward.

How are customer service and technical support?

I don't really need the assistance of technical support. I'm an engineer. Typically, I can fix any issues that may arise. Therefore, I don't contact Microsoft. I can't speak to their support service and how helpful they are.

How was the initial setup?

We found the initial setup to be very simple and straightforward. It's not complex. We didn't have any issues.

I can't recall how long the actual deployment took. It was a while ago now.

I handled the installation by myself. You only really need one person to deploy the product.

We have engineers that can handle maintenance on the solution in our company.

What about the implementation team?

I handled the implementation myself. I didn't need to have the installation done by a consultant or integrator.

What other advice do I have?

We only really use Windows Server for one thing. We don't have too complicated of a setup.

I would recommend the solution to other organizations. I've mostly been happy with the product overall.

I'd rate the solution at a nine out of ten.
