Easy to set up, integrates well with Azure, and is reliable
Pros and Cons
  • "The solution is pretty stable."
  • "The fact that it is completely integrated into Azure, while positive, is also a downside."

What is our primary use case?

The product is an on-premise data center for SQL servers and for virtualized environments.

What is most valuable?

The fact that it's integrated into Azure is its best feature. They go hand in hand.

It's very easy to set up the product.

The solution is pretty stable.

The product can scale. 

What needs improvement?

The fact that it is completely integrated into Azure, while positive, is also a downside. 

For how long have I used the solution?

Azure Stack was implemented by Microsoft about eight months ago. That's pretty much how long I've been using it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable enough. It is not market-leading, however, it is reliable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is decent. It's not market-leading, however, it is possible. 

We have about 20 people using it in our company.

How are customer service and support?

I haven't used technical support. I cannot speak to how helpful or responsive they are. 

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

We didn't change solutions. We just added it and we are still utilizing a host of other solutions, including VMware's vSAN. They both do similar things, however, if I had my choice, I would go with VMware. That's just subjective, however. 

How was the initial setup?

The product has been simple to set up. The deployment is quick and takes an hour. It's not complex or difficult to implement. It's really quite easy. It's a next, next, next flow where you click through and run the software. When you implement it, you attach it to your Azure account and that's when the real work starts, of course, as then you have it up and running.

What about the implementation team?

I install the solution myself. We both deploy it in-house and use a consultant. 

What other advice do I have?

We're resellers. 

I'd recommend the solution, however, for those considering it, the most important thing is to get ahold of somebody who knows what they're doing, for example, a consultant.

I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.
