The load-balancer function support multiple servers, load balancing two gateways on the same tier. However, the firewall could be improved.
The features I've found most valuable are--
- Proxy server (to filter traffic, act as intermediary between our server and our client, and analyze and load-balance traffic)
- Load balancer (support multiple servers, load balances two gateways on the same tier)
- Hot spot (with captive portal, forces authentication or click-through for network access)
Improvements to My Organization:
It's provided us with a fair internet speed for all users. We're also able to control web contents of our users.
Room for Improvement:
The firewall feature could be improved.
We had no issues with deployment.
We had no issues with instability.
We were able to scale just fine.
