We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The work balancing applications are the most valuable feature.The web application firewall which protects our services on the internet, and then of course services like our ability to provide high availability for the services we are offering are the most valuable features.When our primary link goes down I can still get to my Cisco devices and the NetScaler devices on-prem because of the SDN solution. If the internet connection at one of the branches goes down, we can still route them, they still get internet based on the SDN solution through one of the other sites. They can carry on working.

Cons
The product could be improved by making it easier to use and easier to implement.The user interface could be more friendly. Some wizards and other documentation for administrators, as well as some use cases, helps us to understand the solution.Security could be improved because then I can get rid of my Cisco firewalls. If they improve the security then I could run my security, my proxy, my firewalling and my SDN solution on one device instead of having to have multiple devices.

You need to have Linux knowledge in order to use the shell.The product could be improved on the global load and the integration with the other solution like Cisco and Dell. As a representor of the operation, we prefer to have one platform which can accommodate all type of integration. We are also looking for more improvements in the security policy configuration.
