Feature Value Comment
UI Friendliness 
  • Full featured, easy to use but very slow.
  • Expect to see a few Italian sentences peppered through the UI, some emails are sent in Italian too. The important information is still in English.
  • 3 separate sets of credentials are needed to login to 1) the customer area, 2) Aruba Cloud (your cloud server admin UI) and 3) support.
Quality of Service 
  • Hourly billing only on Cloud Pro plans.
