Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""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.""The work balancing applications are the most valuable feature.""The stability is good. If there is a problem, the load will be shifted to other sites automatically, which has been a good experience for us."

"The most valuable features are the configuration and configuring the process.""We have a lot of businesses that we put behind this solution, and it has really helped us in terms of monitoring the logs and incidents.""F5 technical support is really good."

Cons
"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.""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.""The product could be improved by making it easier to use and easier to implement.""The reporting is not so good. They don't have an application to connect the logs."

"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.""You need to have Linux knowledge in order to use the shell.""In terms of the scalability, this part is always so confusing because they are checking for packet count. Also, after an attack, they said that the throughput must be from gigabits but then I check my bandwidth and it is already done in gigabits. So it is a little bit confusing."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have all the features and functions of Citrix because we have a premium license.""For partners, NetScaler is not as expensive price-wise versus F5."
