What is most valuable?

Of course the troubleshooting tools. I think the troubleshooting command is easy and useful. Because ADC is the intermediary between the servers and the end-user application, it gives thorough information about the traffic, what the problem is.

How has it helped my organization?

Even though FortiADC is not completely working for me, overall it helps me provide workload distribution to the servers, as expected.

What needs improvement?

The L7 Persistent load-balancing algorithm has not worked for me after having tested it many times with my customer's in-house application. I'd like to suggest that the company make sure that all load-balancing algorithms work properly with most applications, even those that are in-house apps… more»

What other advice do I have?

If FortiADC wants to compete - and having used F5 LTM for a year - in my opinion: * They should make the Knowledge Base easier to access. They need a "cookbook" like Fortigate. They should modernize their web community appearance. * From my experience with the F5 support team, it is quite easy to… more»

What is most valuable?

* SSL Offloading * VM availability * L7 load balancing

How has it helped my organization?

The boxes were used to load balance the environment, making it more reliable, and improving the performance and response of the applications.

What needs improvement?

The user interface could be more friendly and CLI could be more like that of Fortigate.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Compared to F5, FortiADC pricing is better.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I’m a F5 engineer as well and, to be honest, I do prefer BIG-IP, but as I’ve worked at Fortinet partners I had to deploy some of these. Before FortiADC, I deployed a… more»

What other advice do I have?

It’s easy to use, but it could have more features, when comparing it to a F5. Make a checklist before going into it hands-on. This will make it faster to become familiar… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I’m used to deploying F5 BIG-IP load balancer and all of its modules. Either it’s way easier or I'm more used to it.

What do you think of FortiADC?

What is our primary use case?

We use FortiADC as a disaster recovery solution. We deploy FortiADC as a high-availability (HA) cluster at the datacenter, and as a standalone unit at the DRC.

How has it helped my organization?

FortiADC helps application availability and improves user-response time. In addition, the price is competitive.

What is most valuable?

The main feature that we use is GSLB (Global Server Load Balancing). GSLB makes the customer's network more reliable by scaling applications across multiple datacenters. GSLB as a disaster recovery solution can direct traffic based on site availability.

What needs improvement?

I think it would be helpful if Fortinet put more video examples on their cookbook site.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three…
