Fortinet FortiDB [EOL] Review

Good technical support and easy to set up, but the pricing needs to be improved

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for database security in a private cloud deployment.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of this solution are the security aspects.

What needs improvement?

The pricing of this solution is a little bit on the high side and can be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for around four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have not had to perform any upgrades after the original installation.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This solution is scalable, but if you increase capacity then you may have to move to a higher device that supports a higher demand. There are perhaps eight different versions of FortiDB.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer support for this solution is good. It is at the top. They are responsive when we need support.

How was the initial setup?

This solution is very easy to set up.

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

In the licensing model, the licenses are a little bit expensive.

What other advice do I have?

For anybody who is implementing this solution, I think the most important part is to get the right technical partner. We rely on our partner to help the client implement the solution. The most important thing is the technical support.

In case there are problems that come up later, you need to have someone on hand who understands the setup from the beginning.

This is a good solution, but there is always room for improvement. For example, for a large order, it is very expensive.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
