Some of the most valuable features are the scaling from a small very cheap installation to a very large enterprise installation. In addition, the backups and assistance are good.

Do not use support. Freely available documentation is a bit weak.​
​Not very solid compared to its competitors' products.​
Some of the internal rearrangement in the administration is not as straightforward as it is in competing products.
