We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution already has security profiles and it can protect from DDoS attacks and other kinds of attacks."
"The solution is very user-friendly and very easy to use."
"The most valuable features for us at this early stage are the interface and the integration with existing VMware solutions."
"The most valuable features are stability and low cost."
"The most valuable features are security and dynamic routing."
"Overall, for me, it's a good solution and has been working well."
"This is the most scalable product of its type."
"This is a good firewall and overall it is rich in features."
"The most valuable features are ease of use and user interface."
"From a security standpoint, the customer was able to better secure critical workloads while routing L2/L3 worked normally, giving them more confidence that they would be ready for any potential security incident mitigation or outage (DR)."
"The web interface could be much better."
"There aren't really any aspects of the solution we are unhappy with. It's been a positive experience overall."
"Occasionally the licensing is not very clear. They should make it easier to understand."
"It could be cheaper!"
"They need to enhance their technical support."
"We have done three installations and we have not had any critical issues. The time it took for the installation was approximately two days. However, they should provide better documentation."
"VMware NSX only supports some platforms like KVM."
"The training costs a minimum of $3,000, which is expensive and should be reduced."
"Their licensing model should make it easier to purchase licenses."
"One drawback is this solution requires a lot of other products in the VMware ecosystem to have a full end-to-end operation orchestration monitoring. You have to buy a lot of add-ons to fully utilize the functionality."
"I was not involved in the purchase of the solution but I hear it is on the expensive side."
"The price of this product is too high."
"We are using a perpetual license to use the solution and we have support."
"There is a license required for this solution and there is also a support license available. The price of the solution could be better."
"This solution requires a licence."
"The price is based on the virtual desktop infrastructure(VDI) side and also is dependant on the size of the environment. The price is expensive and it could attract more purchasers in smaller organisations if it was reduced."
"VMware NSX is expensive and everything is licensed. We have to pay for each individual feature."
"You can scale NSX if you have the resources, but it's usually expensive and complex to scale up."
