    "Works like a charm."

    October 4, 2013  |   By CPedersenGL

    Version: AlwaysUp 8.5

    Pros

    Allows access to the same functionality as other service wrappers, but with better options for configuration, checking and debugging.

    If you have legacy software, or software not designed to run as a service, this product has a good chance of solving your problem.

    Quick response to questions posed via. email.

    Cons

    Not a silver bullet. Have encountered a program that so far still won't run even under AlwaysUp.

    Summary

    In a perfect world you should not need software like AlwaysUp, but when you do, and you do not have the budget for a complete rewrite of a poorly designed (or just plain old) program, AlwaysUp can be a time saver.

    "sweeping under carpet only makes your domain dirtier"

    June 18, 2013  |   By SamEnglish

    Version: AlwaysUp 8.5

    Pros

    - false sense of security (feels warm and fuzzy - like morphine before an amputation!)

    Cons

    1. Doesn't resolve underlying instability issues
    2. Introduces a system dependency on a new 3rd party module
    2.1 that cannot be debugged
    2.2 that may introduce new errors and issues into your system
    2.3 that cannot necessarily be relied upon into the future
    3. Further encourages bad system design
    4. Further encourages bad management decisions regarding quick fixes in general. Problems need solutions. People need work. Clients need robust solutions. Managers need to spend the money and manhours necessary to achieve desired results PROPERLY.
    5. Using this "solution" denies the workforce the opportunity to legitimately work an additional x number of hours. Ironically the underlying instability problems and system-wide bad design decisions will probably resurface as astronomical maintenance costs that the managers blame on their technical staff. Net effect is disappointed clients, technical staff that can't do their jobs PROPERLY, and managers that sabotage their own workers.
