What do you like best?

It comes from Red Hat, so the support is one-stop. It handles all the repos we could want. It groups hosts flexibly enough for our needs. It runs overnight, so we don't waste time during the workday. It can integrate with Insights, though we don't use that. It will patch our hosts in AWS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It' a little opaque when there are errors, necessitating a support ticket. Sometimes the jobs lock up, which requires manual intervention. It won't patch CentOS, but we don't care since we have migrated off of that operating system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We use it for the main roles: RHEL patch distribution, scheduling, and enforcement. It has made our patching windows run much more smoothly and simply than when we ran Solaris 10 hosts! It's especially nice to lock in a set of patches that we can push out in successive waves, and have confidence that the first machines patch will get the same patches as the last ones done.

What do you like best?

I like how licensing can be handled all in one place. I also like how different OS info and patch level can be identified from a central console. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how the scope for the software is limited to RHEL. Although used primarily for RHEL systems, we are sometimes forced to incorporate other Linux based OS in our environment, such as CentOS or ubuntu. If we were to dedicate time to improve our configuration to primarily use Satellite for patch management then we would still have to find a different solution for patch management at large for other OS, such as ansible or puppet. If we were able to pull in those other servers with similar architecture, there would be a huge benefit for using Satellite as the central solution across the board. Their LDAP integration could use some work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Solving licensing of RHEL systems in one spot instead of licensing them individually from each OS. I like how systems can subscribe to it via subscription keys. I've realized the benefit of seeing vulnerabilities for systems across datacenters in one central panel. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Instant server provisioning

Easy and automated patch management

Effective configuration and compliance management

Integrated Ansible for automation Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

OS independent. Always the small and medium-size organization looks for a common tool for Windows and Unix/Linux patching/administration to reduce the operation cost in licencing/implementation/HW/maintenance/upgrade. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It helps to fix the vulnerabilities/bugs/security enhancement on time instead of waiting for the next patch cycle. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
