We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The feature that I have found the most valuable is that it works for my use case of application load balancing. I'm using it for PeerSense, and it's easy enough for PeerSense."
"Load balancing is valuable, and we are also using the WAF feature."
"The SpeedFusion feature is good. It allowed us to move away from IPsec between the sites. It is also a really easy product to deploy."
"The SpeedFusion feature is the most valuable."
"Pricing, monitoring, and reports can be improved."
"There is no standardized document available. So, any individual has to work from scratch to work it out. If some standard deployment details are available, it would be helpful for people while deploying it. There should be more documentation on the standard deployment."
"Their hardware support isn't the greatest. We've had one unit go down, and it took a while for them to replace it. It was in the Caribbeans, so it might be a location-related issue."
"Its pricing is the main issue. The pricing could be improved. I would like to see an outbound policy based on the application. It is a very good feature, and most of the customers are looking for that. They can also include stronger firewall features. This would help the customers in choosing this product as the only device for the SD network."
"HAProxy is free in the initial offer. However, pricing can be improved."
"It is free of cost."
"It has lifetime licensing. Its pricing is high for most of the markets."
"Its licensing fee is on a yearly basis. For the price, it is actually pretty good value."
