It's not very stable, at least not in the case of the community edition. I'm working with the community edition right now and I think perhaps it is because of that it is not very stable, it causes the system to sometimes hang. I'm not sure if this is the case for pair tiers.

The solution should offer better integration with other products.The user interface could be made simpler.Technical support and customer service need to be improved.We don't get continuous replication of the data.It gets the job done but it's a bit slow.The technical support and documentation need a lot of work to come up to standard.Having additional training materials, such as a video tutorial, would be an improvement.Inter-version compatibility is a problem, and migration projects between versions are required.
