Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"FlexPod has improved our company as far as ease of management, stability, and redundancy.""All of our main applications run on this solution, and it has done a stellar job.""FlexPod is easy to setup, maintain and has great stability.""The agility is probably the most valuable feature for us. It's very easy to send out resources.""The biggest lesson that I have learned from this solution is the ease of actually setting it up and learning it.""It is definitely easier for us to maintain and do build-outs, so it takes a lot less time to set things up for the customer.""It's a kind of one-stop shop as far as support goes.""This solution has helped to make more things consistent within our organization."

More FlexPod Pros »

"You will find the high availability and License Team with Oracle very valuable."

More Oracle Private Cloud Appliance Pros »

"The most valuable feature is the customization. With the customization you can really give the customers what they want."

More Rackspace OpenStack Pros »

Cons
"The initial learning curve is pretty steep.""This solution is very hard to maintain and keep up.""One touch upgrades would be nice.""I'd like to see some more Ansible integration for automation purposes. We automate everything else with Ansible, so it would be great if we could automate our FlexPod with Ansible as well.""The procedure for contacting technical support could be simplified.""As we do much of the Tier-I support ourselves, and thus don't normally need it, there is time wasted in moving up to the next level.""The biggest thing that I would like to see is more cost-effective FlexPod solutions.""On the NetApp side, there are definitely things to improve in terms of software updates."

More FlexPod Cons »

"The initial setup was very complex."

More Oracle Private Cloud Appliance Cons »

"The line migration is a problem."

More Rackspace OpenStack Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Cost is the primary factor behind why I would not give this product a perfect rating.""It is not going to save you money, but that is not the point. The opportunity to stay competitive in the marketplace is not a cost.""We have a lease for approximately $10,000 USD per month.""We pay approximately $1,400 USD in total for between five-thousand and ten-thousand ports.""It is not cheap, but there is a return on investment in time saved and efficiency.""The solution has saved our customers' organization in terms of CapEx. E.g., with the cloud availability, it's turned into sort of a hybrid CapEx/OpEx model.""The main return on investment would be that instead of having to refresh all of our desktop hardware we have been able to go reimage existing machines and use those as thin clients, then also purchase new thin clients rather than buying actual hardware. It also reduces the overhead of having our technicians deploy those systems and maintain them.""Our licensing costs are about $50,000 per year."
