It's absolutely scalable. The only place that we have a problem with scalability is with what is called the UL Bridge dashboard. That is an API stream that goes to the net probe. We're just sending so much data that sometimes the net probe suspends, so we're not seeing the data. That's the only place where we really have an issue. But I don't think it's the ITRS functionality that is responsible. I think it's our software just sending too much data. In terms of the possibility of increasing usage, everything is pretty stable. The servers that we have them on are all Linux servers with more than enough CPU and memory. I've never really run into a utilization problem on any of the servers where ITRS is running.

Because we have an enterprise license there is no issue with scalability. If the number of servers increases, we have enough licenses to cover that. As far as the dashboards are concerned, the number being used by the various departments is fixed. View full review »

One thing that could be improved in terms of rapid scaling would be more ability to clone aspects of an implementation. It seems like there are opportunities in this area, where we have repetitive tasks to do when it comes to implementing things on new servers or on new gateways. It would be great if there was an easy way to clone something that had already been done. Within my area, there are about 240 users who just look in the Active Console or at a dashboard to determine what might be alerting in their world, and then respond to it. We're still at the beginning of our implementation. I expect it to be used more. Most of these users use it minimally. If they have a production issue, they'll pop in there and take a look. It's not like they're staring at it full-time. And there's a small team, four of us, who are helping to build the implementation. We do all kinds of things, mostly around onboarding servers, interfacing with the support team, and interfacing with the teams that own the applications to make sure that we implement correctly. Most of us are e-business systems consultants, but those titles will be changing over to engineering titles because of a reorganization here. In terms of "power users" who are in there every day doing a lot of things, there are maybe 20 people. View full review »

We've used horizontal scaling effectively. Horizontal scaling, by having more of it, more systems, and more processes, works quite well. That horizontal scaling allows us to delegate the administration as well. We've not hit scaling problems ourselves, but if people wanted a big, humongous instance, and they used vertical scaling, I imagine they would. We've not had problems, but I could imagine some people, if they go the vertical direction, would have problems. That's not uncommon with software technology. I was watching a Google presentation last night and they were saying, "If you go vertical, you will almost certainly hit problems, whereas horizontally, you can just keep scaling forever.
