We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are load balancing and WAF."
"The GUI is fine, at least from an engineer's perspective."
"The reporting feature is quite good."
"Features like AFM, the gateway, and Global DNS are the coolest features that save work for us."
"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."
"Employee onboarding, de-boarding, and other service-provision features make the process easier and it saves us a lot of time."
"There are a lot of ready to use orchestration custom packs."
"I had trouble with high availability deployment in my environment."
"They could use YAML or JSON if they wanted to make it a little bit easier for us."
"The solution should improve pricing. It's expensive in comparison to other American solutions."
"Integration with VAS is something that they need to work on."
"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."
"Efficiency of some features could be improved."
"There should be connectors to cover at least the top industry applications, and they should be easier to configure in a plug-and-play fashion."
"In terms of price, this solution is at the higher end of what you'll find."
