Great scalability, good stability and one of the best on the market

Pros and Cons

  • "The CA Application Insight feature is the solution's most valuable aspect."
  • "The configuration of the solution is a bit difficult to maneuver. They should work to make it easier."

What is our primary use case?

In general, we are replacing vendors with virtual services because vendors are not available and it is costly to get support from them. This is the primary use case for the solution.

What is most valuable?

The CA Application Insight feature is the solution's most valuable aspect.

What needs improvement?

The configuration of the solution is a bit difficult to maneuver. They should work to make it easier.

I'm not sure if there are any features missing from the solution.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is quite stable. We haven't faced any bugs or glitches or noticed anything at all that has affected its performance.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of the solution is very good. We haven't had any trouble when expanding the solution.

Right now, we have 15 users on it. Most are engineers or admins. They're handling the day to day department tasks.

How are customer service and technical support?

We've been in touch with technical support in the past. They are pretty good. They work to get back to us as soon as possible. We've been satisfied with how they've assisted us so far.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously use a different tool.

How was the initial setup?

The solution's initial setup is quite complex. It's not straightforward.

Deployment took about two to three months for us.

The number of people you will need for your deployment depends on the project. In our case, we only needed two people to take care of it.

What about the implementation team?

We handled the implementation ourselves. We didn't need the assistance of outside vendors or integrators.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm not sure of the licensing costs for this solution. These are not details I handle in my day to day. They are directly handled by the client.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I've also looked at HP and Micros Focus as options that we may work with them in the future.

What other advice do I have?

This solution is a great tool. In my opinion, it's the number one tool on the market right now, and I've done some research into other options. 

I'd recommend this solution to others. Many people don't realize that things can be virtualized like this. It can be very easy. All the requirements are right there in one click. It's simple to use. People should try it.

I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

The graphical view when writing a flow but it should support more Python scripts

Pros and Cons

  • "The graphical view of when you're writing flow is the most valuable feature."
  • "In the next release, I would like to see more features to use active directory. And more rules to support more Python scripts and to work with Kubernetes and clouds, to have an easy solution for a lot of parameters."

What is most valuable?

The graphical view of when you're writing flow is the most valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

We want to expand our work to Amazon or Azure to the public cloud. We have Kubernetes on-prem and I want to know if Nolio can handle it.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Nolio for three years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have more than 500 uses in my company. Nolio requires 20 people for maintenance. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was easy. We work with several environments and it doesn't take long move from the environment to one to the other.

We have problems with the CRT. We also deploy microservices. We have a lot of parameters that are different to go from one environment to another, and it's a lot of parameters that we have to deploy and change.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is not an issue here.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Ansible. You don't need to be a DevOps engineer to know how to write the scripts. I could be an operation user. It's too complicated.

What other advice do I have?

It's a nice tool. I think that in the next version, 6.7, they will have more features. Features like supporting Kubernetes.

I would rate Nolio a six out of ten.

In the next release, I would like to see more features to use active directory. And more rules to support more Python scripts and to work with Kubernetes and clouds, to have an easy solution for a lot of parameters.
