Good availability and great for running exchanges and managed services

What is our primary use case?

The typical use base varies due to the fact that, with our client base, we're here, there, and everywhere across the board. It all depends on what direction they want us to go and that we go, or suggest to go. The only places that we would use a virtual server is in an instance of running an exchange. I have also looked at it for running our managed services server on as well.

Pros and Cons

  • "The greatest aspect of the solution is its capability to be available from anywhere."
  • "Support could always be a bit better."

What other advice do I have?

We're resellers. I'm not sure which version of the solution I'm using at this time. It's likely one of the latest versions. In general, I would rate the solution at an eight out of ten. Largely, it's a pretty good solution, however, technical support is really lacking right now.

Good monitoring, self-service, and administration features

What is our primary use case?

We use this product for virtualizing all of our environment. We have between 80 and 85 apps that run our core services. We are an insurance company and we have a lot of internal apps.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are monitoring, and the self-service that they have for a customized environment."
  • "The response time from technical support could be faster."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to hire external, trained professionals with the correct skills for these specific products. In summary, this is a good product and although it has issues, they are minimal. From my perspective, I think that everything is going well. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

We don't have a large infrastructure. Just a single VM server with network switches and a firewall.

What is our primary use case?

We are an engineering firm, so we're using Microsoft Virtual Server for engineering, drafting, and administration.

Pros and Cons

  • "Everything is fine as far as our implementation goes."
  • "In terms of what could be improved, pricing is always too high of course."

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of one to ten, I would give Microsoft Virtual Server an 8.
