Is scalable and easy to use, but the monitoring feature needs improvement
Pros and Cons
  • "It is easy to use. This is what I tell my customers. The coding is easier to develop as well."
  • "The monitoring feature is not impressive because they use Windows for so much monitoring. They set a lock on the window, and then we have to gather the information from the main monitoring feature in the Windows server. There is not enough capacity for problem solving performance issues."

What is our primary use case?

My customers use it to replace the mainframe of each system that's difficult to provide in a test environment. We use virtualization or intelligent mockup.

What is most valuable?

It is easy to use. This is what I tell my customers. The coding is easier to develop as well.

What needs improvement?

The monitoring feature is not impressive because they use Windows for so much monitoring. They set a lock on the window, and then we have to gather the information from the main monitoring feature in the Windows server. There is not enough capacity for problem solving performance issues.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've worked with this solution for six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Right now, the best platform for Micro Focus Service Virtualization is the Windows environment. Windows is somewhat less stable than Linux, and because Windows is not as stable, the maximum stability you can have with Micro Focus Service Virtualization is 70%.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is good.

How are customer service and support?

The support for Micro Focus Service Virtualization is better than that for other products. The technical support staff are highly skilled. Sometimes, we don't have to open a ticket. We can just go into the community and then talk to them directly. I would rate technical support at seven out of ten.

How would you rate customer service and support?

Neutral

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not complex, and it is easy to maintain.

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

It's an expensive solution, but you can get discounts. You have to buy one server and one designer together, for example, and it may cost 15 million Thai Baht.

What other advice do I have?

Because of the price, Micro Focus Service Virtualization is not for everyone. For large companies with specific use cases, this solution may be the best way to go.

On a scale from one to ten, I would rate this solution at seven.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
