Good overall features, a good community version, and an easy initial setup

What is our primary use case?

We primarily have many tools, including Jira, that are currently using RDS. It's mainly used by developers.

Pros and Cons

  • "The provisioning is much faster. You don't have to prepare hardware or install software. You just need to create an instance and you have a database."
  • "A lot of the features are disabled by default. The solution should enable more features. I understand this could cause challenges to management for many clients using RDS, however."

What other advice do I have?

We're currently expanding multiple versions of the solution. We use the cloud deployment model and most clients are also in the AWS environment. I'd advise others to pay attention to the sizing, You don't want to over or under-size. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Scalable and flexible with good pricing

Pros and Cons

  • "Customers can benefit from a lot of cost savings if they go for Azure."
  • "Support isn't that great. They need to work on this aspect of their service. It can be challenging to reach them."

What other advice do I have?

We're a partner. We have a business relationship with the client. I use a few different versions of the solution, depending on my clients, and have worked with both the 2016 and 2019 versions, for example. I would recommend the product. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I'd rate it at an eight.
