We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is the Linux shell, which is useful for troubleshooting or capturing traffic."
"What we like most is its performance to price ratio."
"It's an extremely reliable platform for the network switches we use."
"The solution has good load latency. They're the market leader in this aspect right now."
"The solution is very stable."
"It is very stable. It has good hardware and very stable code. It provides good value for its price. They are a very lean type of organization, so they are very responsive, and they're able to focus more on their platform versus having multiple products out there."
"The initial setup was really straightforward and easy."
"The technical support is good."
"There's a zone for each server and services in the storage."
"It has good integration with HPE Primera. They have smart zoning in which the administration is very easy. You don't have to do anything. Zoning and other things are done automatically if you just enable the smart zoning. That's one very good thing in HP."
"I have not had any issues with our Brocade switches."
"The CVP management platform needs to be improved."
"The intent-based networking management, together with the provider of these solutions that are already free, would be beneficial."
"The solution needs to accommodate new features."
"The solution needs to improve their product range."
"Its price can be better."
"There are some performance issues."
"No graphical interface."
"It should be simpler. There are still some things that can be simpler in the Brocade switches."
"These switches are no longer supported."
"Arista is very expensive. Not everybody is in a position to spend $70,000 to $80,000 for one switch."
"It is pretty pricey for a networking platform. It is on par with Cisco."
