VMware SD-WAN Review

Straightforward to set up and the support is good, but service providers should be enabled to have global visibility

What is our primary use case?

My company works with a wide range of SD-WAN services to bring such solutions to clients.

The use cases depend, as they vary from client to client. One of them is application prioritization, and cost always comes into play when replacing a traditional MPLS network.

What needs improvement?

Some of the service providers that use VeloCloud as their SD-WAN should be enabled to have better global visibility.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with VMware SD-WAN over the past 12 months.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have been in contact with technical support and they have been good.

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

Some of the products that we work with or have experience with are Cisco SD-WAN, Silver Peak, and VMware's VeloCloud.

How was the initial setup?

In my experience, the setup process has been fairly straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?
