Excellent for internal business core applications and has the ability to scale up as necessary

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for an internet application called MyPension.be, where every Belgian citizen can search for information regarding his employment and pension. That's the primary application. In addition, we use the solution for our internal business core application. We have 2,600 internal and external users. Theoretically, there are 10 million potential users but most don't access it. We've had times when we've broken records, and that's usually connected to publicity in the press.

Pros and Cons

  • "There are several levels of module so a company can upgrade if necessary."
  • "It's unfortunate that the network firewall isn't really a next generation firewall."

What other advice do I have?

For others wishing to implement, you need to be very clear about what you want to do, how you want to protect your data and then search for a solution. It could be F5 or something else. When we asked for a review of the product, we provided a description of the features we wanted, and they proposed F5 and Fortinet for the same money. I think Fortinet has fewer features than F5. Fortinet is okay, although it does require two appliances so if you also want a low bouncer you have to buy for the low bouncer and Fortinet. When you take F5 only one appliance is necessary and it's a simple…

Easy to use, good performance, and the SSL upload capability is helpful

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and this is one of the products that we deploy for our customers. I have deployed VIPRON six different times so far. Our customers are in the banking industry. Our clients primarily use this solution in core banking for handling card-based transactions.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the SSL upload."
  • "The pricing for this solution should be reduced so that it can be more competitive."

What other advice do I have?

The biggest lesson that I have learned from working with this product is that the sizing must be correct, which is because of the cost of the device and the license. We sometimes have problems because pre-sales engineers will suggest a lower model to save on costs, but this results in substandard performance that cannot handle the level of throughput and concurrent connections. It is very important to have the sizing assessed properly. Overall, I think that the product is very good and our only complaint is about the pricing. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Easy to set up, easy to configure, and quite stable

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution to balance the traffic that we receive from other communication companies, which we are using for financial projects.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution itself is perfect. It's easy to configure and we haven't had any initial issues with the hardware or power supply."
  • "It's hard to scale down the solution. You need to buy another product in order to do this."

What other advice do I have?

I'm familiar with the F5 1600. We have one for the application delivery controller and the other one as a net traffic manager. We are on the F5 network with other communication parties. I'd recommend he solution for those organizations that have the budget for it. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I'd rate it higher, but the company was not able to support us when we initially had problems with the solution.

Has good vertical scaling options and excellent customer support

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the vertical scaling of the application infrastructure."
  • "The initial setup is complex but it is manageable."

What other advice do I have?

I would advise someone considering this solution to learn about TMOS and F file, explore the basic features, learn about the F5 modules and then buy a VIPRION chassis. It's a very good product. I love this product. I would rate this solution as a nine out of ten. Not a ten just because everything has room for improvement.
