User-friendly, scalable, and easy API use

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for two things; the first is the handling of all of our virtual machines through centralization, and the second is the orchestration of services.

Pros and Cons

  • "You can use a single API to get things done, rather than multiple APIs on multiple modules."
  • "I would like to see support for native VLAN, and fault-tolerance."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody interested in implementing this product is to do the POC, and don't just go blindly with it. You need to see what the pitfalls are and whether your team can handle it, or not. If they cannot handle it then you should look at other cloud products, such as those that have more support in the community. On the other hand, if you are looking for something small, scalable, and easy to deploy, then this is a good solution. I would rate this product a seven and a half out of ten.
