We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros

It saves an enormous, enormous amount of time.Scalability is its most valuable feature.By using Tetration insight, we are able to get the latency on our level accounts and we can determine whatever the issue is with the application latency itself.

Cons
It has an uninviting interface.They should scale down the hardware a bit. The initial hardware investment is two million dollars so it's a price point problem. The issue with the price comes from the fact that you have to have it with enormous storage and enormous computes.It is not so easy to use and configure. It needs a bunch of further resources to work, which is mainly the biggest downside of it. The deployment is huge.It is highly scalable, but there is a limitation that it is only available on Cisco devices.

This flexibility makes it very useful for DevOps to automate deployment of containers.
