Cons
The licensing policy needs to be improved. They have a licensing policy based on the number of CPU sockets. Nowadays what has happened is that the license they are trying to move is based on the number of CPU cores. With the advancement in technology there are now more cores in a single CPU. It's been very challenging in terms of managing the license around everything. Today we have a processor with 24 and 32 cores on the same physical CPU.This product is not so stable. Maybe it is just not mature enough in its development.

The biggest issue with the solution is that it doesn't support Hyper V. It's a big problem.I would like to see a more user-friendly interface.I think there might be some room for improvement when it comes to pricing, because although I know how to convert customers, at the end of day, it's quite expensive. Sometimes your feature architecture is still coming out much cheaper than hardware costs for your infrastructure.The solution needs to offer more documentation and educational materials.Including instrumentation would be a helpful improvement.There should be more functionality available for routing.I am not really impressed by the technical support of this solution.Needs some more monitoring tools.
