AhmedElghawabiTechnical Consultant at a tech services company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The CloudVision Portal allows us to centrally manage all of our Arista products."
"QoS is the most valuable feature because our clients work with VOIP and Critical applications."
"The most valuable features are the jumbo frames and the stacking."
"This solution comes with a lifetime warranty."
"The technology is good and the interface is simple. We haven't had any bugs, disconnections or delays."
"Dell PowerConnect Switches are easy to configure."
"When the price is competitive the customers tend to choose the cheaper brand and then look at the features. So having a competitive price is a plus."
"The functionality is very good."
"The security is the most valuable aspect of this solution. It also has good storage and resource handling."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is simplicity."
"I would like to see a version available with eight or sixteen ports."
"One of the issues that we have been faced with here in Brazil is that we don't have any list times for delivery."
"Scalability, especially with the power connect series is something that you have to take into account before starting the project because any changes to an ongoing project can be difficult."
"More stable firmware releases would be an improvement because we have had them randomly power on and off."
"Because of the stackings you lose some boards and switches."
"It would be great to have modules that integrate with SDN solutions such as Cisco ACI, Arista SDN, Huawei Agile, and IBM."
"I would like to see better scalability and more features on these switches in the future."
"We've only been using the solution for half a year. We haven't run into any issues, but maybe over time, that may change. It's too soon to tell. Offhand, there aren't any features that are lacking."
"Not a ten because I have to do a lot of testing on it. The correlation is okay."
"When it comes to the configuration, there should be documentation and interactive help available to assist people who have experience with products from other vendors."
"The only licensing costs are for CloudVision, although the upfront price of the device is not cheap."
"The price is not that good, but our clients value the solution despite the price."
"This solution is much cheaper than comparable products by Cisco."
"The price of these switches is okay."
"Its price is okay. Sometimes, it is lower than a Cisco solution."
