Pros
F5 BIG-IP is used with good applications and functions as an application firewall with additional features. We will not use any feature or any service unless there is a business case and there is a need for implementation.We're able to do load balancing and global load balancing. When you marry those two products together, you can do a lot more. We're able to deliver our applications more securely and faster. It has improved our deliverability where we have more service across the shared data centers. We can intelligently reach all of those client connections across all of the servers and do it fairly quickly. It has helped improve our application delivery and performance.It is a fast and available solution.It is the perfect solution when you have high workloads in your IT environment.It integrates with AWS WAF, which makes it easy to deploy without changes to your infrastructure.It improves the overall performance of applications by decreasing the burden on servers associated with managing and maintaining applications and network sessions, as well as by performing application-specific tasks.Initial setup is easy and pretty standard.It is a very good, flexible solution. It helps us to catch up on flaws in our partner solutions on top of its load balancing feature.

the security level is very high. After we tested it and checked all the security aspects of the product, we found that it's highly secure.If you want a very flexible system that you can easily integrate, and develop interfaces for it or plug-ins to other application environments, it's probably the most flexibleSafe-T is very good for users because it has plug-in for Outlook.

Cons
The license terms for "non-commercial" will be a challenge for us.The license terms for "non-commercial" will are challenging for us.There are issues with F5 BIG-IP but they are minor issues not affecting production and services. Sometimes the operations and the facility systems fail. However, there is an alert action from the windows. An ordeal for the manager.I would like to see improvement in the manageability and easier setup.I would like them to have more flexible models.Performance: Using the product, applications are jittery.​Needs to provide a visual interface to follow a customer's activity (from client to BIG-IP to SNAT IP to the chosen server, then back). Today, we are still performing packet captures.We would like to see load balancing between the cloud and the on-premise, a straightforward deployment feature.

One important thing that we haven't found in this product is the ability to provide a read-only view for documents. Also, the ability for the customer to add annotations to these documents.

Pricing and Cost Advice
They are expensive.We purchased through the AWS Marketplace because it was a popular way to go, and we were intrigued. The price of this product is not an issue. They have good pricing and licensing.Unless the price difference is large, this is not the primary concern for the product. The performance and product-related issues (secure for VPN, multi-function for network device, etc.) are the keys.I would recommend that the cost be lowered.If you are planning to use security features, better to go for strong hardware and the best bundle license, which is great for web security.The price is high.We have found the pricing and licensing on AWS to be competitive.Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was good. We chose to go through the AWS Marketplace because everything that we needed was a soft appliance. We needed something to work in Amazon, and this product was available there.
