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

Pros
"We use this solution on a daily basis, and it is very stable.""Features like AFM, the gateway, and Global DNS are the coolest features that save work for us.""The most valuable features are load balancing and WAF.""The reporting feature is quite good.""The best aspect of the solution is that we can have everything integrated with a rather large capacity in order to personalize and configure specific rules.""The GUI is fine, at least from an engineer's perspective."

"It has reduced the time taken to go to market. In the past, we were struggling with building these integrations, but now the process has sped up and there is an added advantage of quick delivery. In addition, it is an agent-less solution, which provides more flexibility in terms of multiple options.""It's very stable. If you ask me for the success rate metrics, it's more than 90% for both."

Cons
"There are a lot of scripts available on the internet for people who know how to use them, but with a graphical interface, it would be easier for new users.""The shell, kernel, or Linux has something like a delay, especially with the Virtual Edition, when you are trying to implement it in the cloud and you want to access it remotely with web management. It would be great if they could improve their kernel. It was difficult for me, especially when I got started with BIG-IP. I was struggling to find which commands work with it. If you want to work with it, you have to be a Linux guy.""I had trouble with high availability deployment in my environment.""Integration with VAS is something that they need to work on.""The solution should improve pricing. It's expensive in comparison to other American solutions.""They could use YAML or JSON if they wanted to make it a little bit easier for us."

"There were a lot of scalability issues that we initially faced. Whenever I tried to deploy 100-200 endpoints, it became a huge challenge. We had to actually start using other tools like Tivoli Endpoint Management in order to patch the issues.""The price is an area that should be addressed because the price is high."
