Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Thanks to Heroku, we don't need to do as much direct management in AWS.""It's easy to push a change and to deploy new things."

More Heroku Pros »

"This solution is providing a platform with OOTB features that are difficult to build from scratch.""We are able to operate client’s platform without downtime during security patch management each month and provide a good SLA (as scalability for applications is processed during heavy client website load, automatically).""The most valuable feature is the high availability for the applications.""Provides support throughout the whole platform."

More OpenShift Pros »

Cons
"They could flesh out some of their analytics a little more.""Heroku doesn't support Docker images on the CI infrastructure."

More Heroku Cons »

"If we can have a GUI-based configuration with better flexibility then it will be great.""Not a ten because it's not a standard solution and the endpoint protection user has to prepare with documentation or have training from other people. It's not easy to start because it's not like other solutions.""The solution only offers support for one server."
