What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for one of our customers is the ability to stage cloud workloads from the local network.

What needs improvement?

This solution needs a local gateway for the cloud in every country. The gateway is used to set up cloud access and one of my clients had a bad experience with the local partner that was trying to set one up. Technical support is in need of improvement.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend using this solution. It is a good product and if the support were improved then it would be even better. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

VeloCloud performs as well as the Cisco SD-WAN but it is cheaper in price.
