Overall Satisfaction with CloudBolt Software

We use CloudBolt [Software] to make server deployment simpler for our everyday users, for almost everyone in our company. We use it to scale up and test for QA environments so they can test any new versions of our deployments. We also have a wide array of users who would use this in their specific departments for specific tasks. This ranges from scaling up one server for X task to scaling up multiple servers with different configurations - all done with a few clicks.
  • Reporting
  • Flexibility in OS
  • Support for different virtualization platforms
  • Support could be improved on a >tier 1 level
  • Logging could be more descriptive/specific
  • Stability of the actual server
  • We have invested countless man hours to troubleshooting and being support's QA.
  • Most of our teams have saved an invaluable amount of time by being able to automate their deployments.
  • After the initial time you spend [understanding] all the nuances, the configuring of groups, permissions, etc., does make administering it easier.
We honestly haven't looked into much. We've been using CloudBolt [Software] for a long, long time. I think we briefly looked into Morpheus but figured it was too much effort to lift everything, communicate it, etc. We selected CloudBolt [Software] because, at the time (and still do), they served our very specific case. We also liked the ability to customize certain aspects of the deployments - that enabled our "power users" to really tweak things just right for their departmental tasks.

I think it's great for giving any/all users the ability to deploy servers for whatever they want. It's also great for scaling up/down large quantities of servers. It also has some pretty good plugins and "orchestration actions" that you can write for yourself. I don't think it would be best suited if you want to set and forget it. It needs some TLC, and the interface and initial setup [are] not the most user-friendly. So if you're planning on using it for some complex tasks, make sure you have someone dedicated to it, at least for the initial setup. And make sure you have monitoring on it.
