Stacki having HP RAID controller support was a huge win for us. There was was no way that my team was going to manually update the RAID configuration of 1600+ servers.
Lead Systems Engineer
With Stacki, there really are no cons…Stacki gets your nodes into the state that’s ready for you to do what you need to do. For us it was executing Ansible playbooks.
Cloud Validation Developer
The Stacki implementation did make for a quick deployment of our Hadoop cluster, which would have taken us longer if we used Puppet and Razor and did it ourselves.
