"Trial of LunaCloud for our company's PaaS offering"

What do you like best?

Pricing, simplicity of console, possibility of a partnership with our company

What do you dislike?

Stability, support, API support, use of combination of software/hardware not supported by software and hardware vendors

Recommendations to others considering the product:

nfortunately, when evaluating LunaCloud in 2013 to serve as the Cloud provider for our personal edition PaaS offer, we ran into a lot of problems. Please note that, in contrast, we were using AWS for our Enterprise offer, so the comparison might not be fair. However:

Problems:

- Stability (we had downtimes of entire clusters of machines almost every week)

- Lack of API's (we had an automatic provisioning system that was agnostic to the IaaS provider, as long as it made available some basic APIs that LunaCloud had to develop specifically for us in that time)

- Non-Certified hardware and software: Then, they had a set of Hardware and Software that were not certified with each other: The Cloud Software wasn't certified to run on the servers and the servers' provider did not certify the storage provider they were using; so the debugging and troubleshooting was extremely difficult for them

- Weak support and SLA's: We were expecting from a partnership that we had with them a faster response time to our problems. There were even times that when one of their head support engineers had health problems, they were unable to solve harder issues.

Strong points:

- The web console was very user friendly and easy to use

- The scaling features were very comprehensive and flexible

- The pricing was very straightforward

- The cost was very competitive when compared to other IaaS providers (GoGrid, AWS, Rackspace, Microsoft, etc.)

Please note that this is a review based on LunaCloud's state in mid/end 2013, beginning of 2014. These issues might not be valid by now.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Implementation of a PaaS offering for our company. We tried a partnership with Lunacloud that we eventually canceled due to their incapacity of supporting our requirements

"Awesome support and performance"

What do you like best?

The base plane VM is really fast compared to the alternatives.

What do you dislike?

Linux kernel version was not the latest, so it was impossible to run docker.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Git it a try, its way faster than AWS.
