Freelance Contract Software Engineer at a tech vendor
The ability to autoscale based on load is the most valuable feature. I would highly recommend it.

What is most valuable?

It used to be the ability to autoscale based on load.

How has it helped my organization?

I was able to to deal with requests without needing every server on; I could turn them off.

What needs improvement?

Compatibility with SoftLayer I think was our block. Rackspace was fine, as far as I know.

For how long have I used the solution?

I think I have been using it for a few months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We didn’t have stability problems.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We didn’t have scalability problems.

How are customer service and technical support?

I don't recall using technical support.

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

We did use AWS autoscaling but Rackspace left something to be desired.

How was the initial setup?

Setup was fine. An initial setup was relatively easy. We had trouble migrating/importing though, so we had to create everything from scratch.

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

As it is GPL (as far as I know?) I would highly recommend it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We found no other suitable looking, easy-to-use solutions. APIs were complex.

What other advice do I have?

Install it on your own server, as we did. This helped us internalise
for privacy needs.
