Quotes From Members

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

Pros
Key features include SSL Offloading, VM availability, and L7 load balancing.The main feature that we use is GSLB (Global Server Load Balancing). GSLB makes the customer's network more reliable by scaling applications across multiple datacenters. GSLB as a disaster recovery solution can direct traffic based on site availability.Because ADC is the intermediary between the servers and the end-user application, it gives thorough information about the traffic, what the problem is.

The most valuable aspect is that it establishes user security.I am finding SSL-TLS acceleration the most valuable function, with certificate management. It is easy to generate certificates and assign them to services

Cons
The user interface could be more friendly and CLI could be more like that of Fortigate.I think it would be helpful if Fortinet put more video examples on their cookbook site.The L7 Persistent load-balancing algorithm has not worked for me after having tested it many times with my customer's in-house application. I'd like to suggest that the company make sure that all load-balancing algorithms work properly with most applications, even those that are in-house apps.Setup could be easier. The company's homework is to redesign those menus to configure with the smallest number of steps.
