"Performance-wise, this solution is really good."
"Straightforward development and deployment."
"Integration and mapping are easy, which is a major advantage."

"The images and size of the containers are too big and I think that they should be more lightweight."
"Technical support is good but they could have a better response time."
"The installation configuration is quite difficult."
"There is some lag in the GUI. There have been some performance issues and maybe it's because of the application data."
