Windows Server Review

User-friendly, easy to install, priced well, but the security should be improved


What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for business applications.

What is most valuable?

It's user-friendly.

What needs improvement?

The security is not good. Windows Server has never been secure. You have put firewalls in place and do other things such as installing anti-virus software to secure Windows, otherwise, it won't work well.

Windows will never be secure, but it should be.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for several years from 2008 to version 2015. We use it extensively.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is fair. It's okay.

How was the initial setup?

It is very easy to install.

It doesn't take very much time at all, it's very easy, just click until it's finished.

What about the implementation team?

I completed the installation myself.

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

It is priced very well and we pay an annual license fee.

It's not very expensive when compared to Linux.

What other advice do I have?

We plan to continue to use this solution and would recommend it to others who are interested in using it.

I would rate Windows Server a seven out of ten.
