Windows Server Review

Server operating systems that boast simplicity, but require more security features

What is our primary use case?

We use it for the operating system.

What is most valuable?

I like its simplicity. 

What needs improvement?

It would be better if they had more security features and fewer bugs. They can also improve their technical support.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Windows Server for about ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Windows Server is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Windows Server is scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support isn't very good. I would rate it somewhere in the middle.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

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

It could be cheaper. 

What other advice do I have?

I would tell potential users that it depends on the solution and the setup. If it's related to security, maybe it's better to go for Linux. If they're looking for usage and administration, they can go for Windows.

On a scale from one to ten, I would give Windows Server a seven.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
