We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is very well integrated into Amazon's services."
"The simplicity of the solution and its ability to integrate easily with others are its most valuable aspects."
"This is a SaaS product, so it is always up to date."
"Good customization; able to report and take action on alerts."
"The solution was very easy to configure. It wasn't hard at all to adjust it to our needs."
"Load balancing and web application firewall features are the most valuable."
"WAF feature replicates the firewall."
"The pricing is quite good."
"The solution is easy to set up."
"It would be good if we had a product that integrates well with third-party vendors. Some of our customers want a multi-cloud solution. They don't want to be tied up to or be in just one cloud."
"The pricing of the solution could be improved. Right now, it's a bit expensive."
"For the first-time user, it is difficult to understand so the user-interface needs to be improved."
"Needs easier integration with the existing SIAM."
"The security of the product could be adjusted."
"It does not have the flexibility for using public IPs in version 2."
"Scalability can be an issue."
"The monitoring on the solution could be better."
"The configuration is very specific right now and needs to be much more flexible."
"It is not expensive."
"Every solution comes with a license and cost. Microsoft provides the license and the total cost is for the maintenance every year."

Elastic Load Balancing automatically distributes incoming application traffic across multiple targets, such as Amazon EC2 instances, containers, IP addresses, and Lambda functions. It can handle the varying load of your application traffic in a single Availability Zone or across multiple Availability Zones. Elastic Load Balancing offers three types of load balancers that all feature the high availability, automatic scaling, and robust security necessary to make your applications fault tolerant.
Azure Application Gateway is a web traffic load balancer that enables you to manage traffic to your web applications. Traditional load balancers operate at the transport layer (OSI layer 4 - TCP and UDP) and route traffic based on source IP address and port, to a destination IP address and port.
