Windows Server Review

Vast training support, easy to use, but could be more secure

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution as a server for our information at our company.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features I have found to be the flexibility and wide range of support training available.

What needs improvement?

In the future, there should be better protection for this solution.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for approximately 20 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable. However, you can receive a lot of cyberattacks. We need to invest more in security when we are using Windows. It tends to be the target of attacks and hacks compared to other operating systems, such as Linux. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have approximately 400 users using the solution in my organization.

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

We used Ubuntu Linux previously.

How was the initial setup?

The installation of the solution is easy. The time depends on what you are going to configure on the server. The install itself can be done in approximately 10 minutes.

What about the implementation team?

We did the implementation ourselves and we use a team of two developers and three administrators for maintenance.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. However, I would advise investing in more security measures. We plan to continue using the solution in the future.

I rate Windows Server a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
