More Cisco Piston Enterprise OS Pros »

"You can use a single API to get things done, rather than multiple APIs on multiple modules.""CloudStack’s private gateway networking feature is what enables us to offer utmost security and confidentially to our customers and partners, by enabling them to connect to their virtual data centers via dedicated, encrypted, private fiber lines that never touch the public internet space. Ease of setup and management are certainly important additional benefits for us on the engineering team."

Cons
"The solution is just too expensive, so maybe the pricing could be better."

More Cisco Piston Enterprise OS Cons »

"I would like to see support for native VLAN, and fault-tolerance.""There are some minor things that can be improved even more such as, perhaps, a bit more polishing on the GUI side to catch up with the API possibilities (which are really extensive) but otherwise nothing critical."
