Pros: Price for what I can do. I can spin up as many servers as I need, to do whatever I want. It is easy to use and very intuitive. I can test just about everything before putting it into production.

Cons: Instructions are clear, but occasionally something is left out, like a reboot or restart of a service is needed. It makes you wonder if you broke something.

Overall: I regularly advert potential production disasters with help from my Antsle. When there are no available servers in our datacenter to test on. I can install our special CentOS image on my Antsle in minutes, and clone it or create new Linux instances in seconds. I regularly make OS changes, test new software, and have fun trying new things that could and do sometimes corrupt the OS. The best part, there is 100% no risk to my production environment. I am able to perform all the necessary changes and test scenarios on my Antsle before applying them across my entire environment with no issues.

Pros: I can very quickly and easily spin up new testing instances using VM templates I created.

Cons: Updates are not as regular as one would hope. It would be nice if there were more disconnect between the proprietary software (antman et al) and the underlying Gentoo, so I could update Gentoo separately more easily.

There were some growing pains in learning the nuances of supporting ZFS and some of the other underlying technology. Better documentation on how to resolve problems from the command line would be great.

Overall: We migrated customer testing VMs from AWS to our Antsle and easily saved a thousand a month or so. The value of the Antsle we purchased has long since outweighed its cost.

Pros: antsle is extremely easy to setup and use. The templates that are already in place make deployment very easy and once you have customized them to you it is a breeze to duplicate them out for whatever you need. The interface is intuitive and easy to navigate around. The functions that you need are exposed for easy access and if you need to do something more advanced you can go to the shell.

Cons: The only thing that I had a little bit of a challenge with at first was the default passwords for each of the templates, but once I noted them and deployed a few machines + made my own templates, it became a breeze. Overall I haven't really found many things I don't like

Overall: antsle has allowed me to virtualize the bulk of my servers and to only leave a few bare metal servers. I have been able to bring down my ESXi environment which saves me energy, heat and money.

Pros: The ability to manage VM's without loading up my laptop. I can turn laptop off and connect right where I left off. The opportunity to keep the state of the VM active until I'm complete has increase my productivity. I can leave a sand box up and running and not worry about it crashing my system.

Another great feature is the ability to have multiple VM up and running to understand integration technique and security concern on your own private environment. I can emulate a solution in house before trying it at a client as root. Allowing me to guide the DEVOPS or administrator on the best approach to implement a solution.

Cons: You need to understand Linux. That more of a statement. I had a huge learning curve but googling and documentation provided by antsle on most common setup are available.

Overall: A great experience. The price was a hurdle but the clean quite solution out weighed my concerns.

Pros: I really appreciate owning my data. I think having the assurance that one of my most valuable assets is wholly owned and safe is most important

Cons: For a person who has never used any web technologies prior the transition to self hosting required some learning.

Pros: I really like the simplicity of the user interface. The documentation makes everything really easy to set up and manage.

Cons: I wish there was more information on the server load and processes running. There is a bar graph of the CPU load but it's not obvious which antlet is using all the resources or what process is running. I think I can still SSH into the server and view this information through "top" but it would be nice to get more analytics on the dashboard.

Overall: The server itself is a heatsink but the heat still can be an issue if the server is hot to the touch. Warm is safe but if the server feels hot it runs the risk of burning itself up. I have had a server crash from being too hot but the warranty department was really great. I was able to solve the issue by installing a CPU fan on top of the server case. I pulled an AMD Ryzer fan off its heatsink and set it on top of the antlet and never had any issues since. I also like how small and quiet the physical server is. This makes a great affordable solution for any type of software development.
