We need to deploy our main application, the ERP system, and we needed an efficient solution to provide a solution to the remote sites, with very small links between the data center and the remote site."

"The initial startup costs for this solution are relatively high."
"The solution is very expensive."
"Deployment and configuration could be simplified."
"Technical support is only average and can be improved."
"In the future, I would like to see better support for application virtualization."

"Licensing and hardware outsourcing is expensive, but can be cost-effective in the three to five-year range."
