Versa Director Review

Easy to define a variety of different policy constructs; could be simplified with regard to features

What is our primary use case?

We are looking at this solution as a means to get better management around our SD Wan functionality. The solution is used by our network teams. We're a large service provider and customers of Versa.

What is most valuable?

I think the most valuable functionality is some of the policy pieces that are quite useful. They make it a lot easier to define a lot of different policy constructs.

What needs improvement?

I think the one area that could be improved is that there are a lot of features. That is also an advantage but it makes things a little difficult. I'd like to see some simplification so that there is less bloat.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for over two years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is fairly stable but there's room for improvement. Our service provider handles all maintenance. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

For the scope of what the solution is supposed to be, it is scalable and inherently, it does tolerate quite a substantial scale. I wouldn't use it on a service provider scale, but it definitely works for the enterprise scale.

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't had to deal directly with technical support because everything was done through the service providers.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is fairly complicated, and there's quite a bit of work involved from a design standpoint, making sure everything is in place. We had a fairly small deployment, with a very small number of locations and I think it took a couple of weeks. 

What other advice do I have?

I rate this solution a six out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
