Find out what your peers are saying about Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect vs. VeloCloud and other solutions. Updated: January 2021.
456,719 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"First and foremost, it enables the customer to deploy high availability connections. This kind of solution enables them to deploy these HA connections for policies mostly automatically. It's a more automated approach than with other vendors."
"We had several clients that were paying $7,500 a month for an MPLS line for one single 10 megabit circuit and we were able to take that from $7,500 a month down to $500 a month for two 10 megabits circuits that added redundancy where before they did not have redundancy and it gave them a much better throughput."
"The most valuable feature is the support for asymmetric lines."
"The most valuable feature for one of our customers is the ability to stage cloud workloads from the local network."
"The most valuable feature is the Dynamic Multipath Optimization (DMPO), which allows the customer to maintain and monitor their link quality in real-time."
"Proactively detects where problems might arise."
"The most valuable feature is load balancing."
"They make use of a combination of different internet lines, which improves quality."
"The most valuable feature is the dynamic multipath optimization."
"The biggest feature is called D.M.P.O., or Dynamic Multipath Optimization, which is one of the technologies that they use to deliver or ensure data integrity."
"They have a lot of built-ins. There are so many applications defined inside the solution. It makes it so that we don't have to create some policies. Each and every application is already defined in it."
"They have to implement more security with it. The security, mainly their firewall functions, have to be included in the firewall features."
"Their WAN optimization in terms of wireless connectivity doesn't have a very good cellular capability."
"The security can be improved, with the firewall for example, because they supply a basic one but not a UTM."
"Technical support is in need of improvement."
"VeloCloud needs improvement in terms of its security features."
"Reports could be simplified."
"The cost of VeloCloud could be lowered."
"There is room for improvement with respect to security."
"There is no security included, which is something that should be improved."
"They need more gateways"
"The solution doesn't offer failover between their own devices. If I want to, I should be able to put the two devices at the side, so there can be a failover."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"You typically will license the hardware and you license the software to access the hardware capabilities. The price will range anywhere from a hundred to $300 a month. There are no additional costs."
"The licensing fees depend on the bandwidth. As an example of what we charge our customers, for 100MB without Boost, the price is approximately $2,000. That includes the licensing and the unit."
"VeloCloud performs as well as the Cisco SD-WAN but it is cheaper in price."
"The price of this solution is higher than that of other SD-WAN vendors."
"The price of this solution should be lower."
"The pricing is very comparable to Fortinet."
