Juniper SRX Review

Excellent high-speed interfaces but throughput when using features can be improved

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use this solution for data center segregation.

What is most valuable?

The features that are most valuable are the high-speed interfaces and MPLS.

What needs improvement?

The throughput when using features can be improved.

100-gigabit interfaces should be added into the next release because we'd like to adopt them.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for approximately 6 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution's stability is very good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of the solution is limited.

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

We did use a different solution. The old boxes were at end of life.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was complex because we have a complex network.

What other advice do I have?

I find that the interfaces are okay. The big thing is performance. With all the features turned on it slows down.

The advice I would give to everyone is to specify a larger box than you think you need.

Due to the performance indications, I'd rate this product as a 7 out of 10.
