Cisco DNA Virtualization [EOL] Review

Good support, feature-rich, and works well from a technical perspective

What is our primary use case?

We are a system integrator and we are currently working on a project with a client who is using this solution. It is used for private cloud or data center virtualization.

What is most valuable?

We make use of all of the features that are available.

What needs improvement?

It would be helpful to have better information on how to implement this product.

The price of this solution could be lower.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with Cisco DNA Virtualization for the past two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Initially, we had some issues with stability but now it is okay.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

Cisco has a good technical support team.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We work with many different vendors for storage and security solutions. However, we have not worked with a solution that is similar to this one before.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not easy. The difficulty comes from the fact that many customers have been working with traditional networking systems for 10 to 20 years, and the concept of Cisco DNA Virtualization is different. It means that they have to adapt.

What about the implementation team?

We handle the implementation of this solution for our customers.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Cisco products are not cheap.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, from a technical perspective, this product is good, but it could be improved with respect to pricing. It is also difficult to implement.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
