Most Helpful Review
Gives me insight into which servers interact with other elements in the environment, helps me to maintain them
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The solution offers 100% telemetry coverage. The telemetry you collect is not sampled, it's not intermittent. It's complete. You see everything in it, including full visibility of all activities on your endpoints and in your network.
The most valuable feature of this solution is security.
The product offers great visibility into the network so we can enforce security measures.
The most valuable feature of the solution is that we don't have to do packet captures on the network.
A complete and powerful micro-segmentation solution.
Instead of proving that all the access control lists are in place and all the EPGs are correct, we can just point the auditor to a dashboard and point out that there aren't any escaped conversations. It saves an enormous, enormous amount of time.
Scalability is its most valuable feature.
By using Tetration insight, we are able to get the latency on our level accounts and we can determine whatever the issue is with the application latency itself.
The gradual way the Network Insight shows you all the relevant information about your networks. It's pretty good. You can really dig deep deep inside and see where the problem is, where it comes from, what you have inside, how did you configure it. Also, it has alerts so you can have pretty much quite a big overview about your network. This is really something good.
A lot of time is saved when you use this type of software solution for the network. We have moved systems into the new data center and the servers and systems are much faster because of the very low latency between virtual machines.
The solution helps reduce time to value, increase performance, provide deep visibility, and easily manage networks.
The initial was straightforward. You can have it up and running in one hour.
It provides deep visibility into what is happening with traffic and helps us manage our network.
If we deploy NSX it shows us how the workflow will flow in the organization, what the roadblocks are, and what we need to do to overcome those hurdles. When we run this product, it gives us reports which describe problems with physical switches. We work with the network team to get them all resolved.
The most valuable feture is NetFlow to help us understand how VMs communicate with each other over ports that are known and ports that are also unknown to us. Our company is a security company, so it's very important for us to know exactly which VMs are doing what at all times.
It especially helps with deploying NSX, that you're not having to manually chase down and figure out what you need to do to microsegment VMs. This gives a nice option where you can say, "Hey, this VM, show me what flows are there." I can export it out and then import it as an NSX rule and job done.
The multi-tenancy, redundancy, backup and restore functionalities, as well as the monitoring aspects of the solution, need improvement. The solution offers virtually no enterprise-grade possibility for monitoring.
The interface is really helpful for technical people, but it is not user-friendly.
The emailed notifications are either hard to find or they are not available. Search capabilities can be improved.
I'd like to see better documentation for advanced features. The documentation is fairly basic. I would also like to see better integration with other applications.
It has an uninviting interface.
They should scale down the hardware a bit. The initial hardware investment is two million dollars so it's a price point problem. The issue with the price comes from the fact that you have to have it with enormous storage and enormous computes.
It is not so easy to use and configure. It needs a bunch of further resources to work, which is mainly the biggest downside of it. The deployment is huge.
It is highly scalable, but there is a limitation that it is only available on Cisco devices.
I want to be able to monitor a network flow that is approximately two weeks back, but I haven't found an easy way to do this.
The virtual appliance has rebooted.
vRNI needs more remediation where it hooks into NSX.
If it had some kind of plugins with vSphere, more effective plugins with Horizon View or other VMWare products, if it had interconnectivity, I think it would be more effective than it is today.
I would like to see them expand the capabilities to infrastructure types other than just VMware.
While it's not exactly a feature, what normally happens when we are trying to look at the VM flow portion is - although Network Insight does have options to integrate a few physical switches into it - we can't really get an end-to-end flow of the network. We might be using a few switches that are not supported by Network Insight. That is where they can improve, in the support for more physical switches and network devices.
In a very general way, I would like to see an improvement in interoperability with third-party product, from other vendors.
I would like to see more reporting features, more dashboards.
Pricing and Cost Advice
It is not cheap and pricing may limit scalability.
Pricing depends on the scope of the application and the features. Larger installations save more.
The price is outrageous. If you have money to throw at the product, then do it.
The pricing is a bit higher than we anticipated.
We have spent less time investigating network flows, so it is absolutely cost-effective.
It has brought more money into our company.
The solution has reduced the time that we spend on other products. For example, with NSX, we were able to quickly find things that we would normally spend days trying to figure out.
It's an expensive product because we have a lot of nodes.
They should include the product in NSX because it's important to have it for deployment.
Cost always has room for improvement, you could always make it cheaper. But I think it's a good value for what you pay for it.
The solution has helped us to reduce time, increase performance, reduce costs, and even easily manage networks. We are probably seeing 10 to 20 percent labor savings because we are able to be very specific and focused on what we want to do. It ends up saving the customer money and makes us be more efficient on our cost deliveries.
It reduces costs. It takes something that may be challenging and makes it more usable and visual by being able to bring in tools, seeing what their impact is, such as microsegmentation and application rationalization, and seeing it quickly.
