Great UI, easy to use, straightforward deployment, and many applications available

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution to install and use applications on it.

What is most valuable?

This solution is very user friendly, easy to use for any system administrator, simple to deploy applications, has a wide range of applications available, great UI, and takes less technical skills to operate than some other competitors. Additionally, the active directory has great functionality, if we want to integrate any assets, then we can easily do it.

What needs improvement?

When it comes to the performance of this solution others are slightly better such as Linux. This solution promotes its services only, in some of the integrations, it does not support external ones. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for the last three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable and the updates are done automatically. I have not had any major critical issue, but if there was, there is a big online community we can find a solution that is great. Otherwise, it is supported by Windows diagnostic within the software.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have approximately 45 users using the solution in my company.

How are customer service and technical support?

The support for Microsoft is very good.

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

We use Windows Server and Linux, they have different strengths and weaknesses in use cases. Linux feels a little lighter than this solution.

How was the initial setup?

The installation is straightforward, there is not any difficulty and took approximately 35 minutes.

What about the implementation team?

We did the implementation ourselves and a single person can do the deployment.

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

There is a license for this solution and the price could be cheaper.

What other advice do I have?

We are going to continue to use the solution and I recommend it to others.

I rate Windows Server a ten out of ten.
