Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the ability to provide very granular classes of service. That's important because it allows us to prioritize certain traffic types over others, to a very granular level.""Exinda can show you which product uses how much throughput and can help you manage it."

More Exinda Pros »

"TCP optimization... caches a particular TCP connection and the next time a user uses that connection he will reach the destination easily."

More Riverbed Steelhead Pros »

Cons
"What I don't like is the fact that I haven't purchased the overall management interface. That is the interface that allows you to manage multiple Exindas. Personally, I think Exinda should provide that for free. I think that if you buy more and more Exinda boxes, you shouldn't then have to incur a charge for the overall management software. While I can manage each Exinda separately, if they provided me with the overall management platform for free that would probably encourage me to buy more appliances.""It should improve the quality of service. It can improve their connection to the internet and your IP."

"Application response time and network performance could be improved."
