What is most valuable?

The ability to take multiple data sets and match those data sets together is the solution's most valuable feature. The data lake that comes with it is very useful because that allows us to match data sets with different configurations that we wouldn't normally be able to match. The AI functionality… more»

What needs improvement?

The solution is cloud-based, and therefore the billing model that comes with it could be more intuitive, in my opinion. It's very easy to not fully understand how you tag things for billing and then you can quite easily run up a high bill without realizing it. The solution needs to be more intuitive… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previous to this solution, we used Microsoft Azure. Amazon allows you to provision more services once you have the initial platform in place.

What other advice do I have?

We use the public cloud deployment model. We use the Amazon cloud. From a technology perspective, Amazon is very simple. It requires, in order for it to run effectively, quite a mature cloud-based culture within your organization, however. My advice to others would be to get their operating model… more»

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

The licensing costs for this solution vary depending on which model is being used. It comes in many different sizes and models. I think that the cost of support, or maintenance, might be in addition… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to this solution, we used F5 BIG-IP and the Azure Load Balancer.

This is definitely a solution that I recommend. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Our clients do evaluate other options and vendors such as F5, Cisco, Palo Alto, and Microsoft Azure before deciding on which solution to implement. People generally choose Citrix NetScaler because of… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspect of this solution is that it is simple to deploy. The deployment took us ten minutes. We only require two staff members for the deployment. It's all automated and it's a very stable product.

What needs improvement?

In terms of what needs improvement, the price could be lowered. We've tried to deploy more of them but our purchasing department has said that they're way too expensive and they would prefer to use something else. We sort of stopped deploying them because of that. There are additional costs to the… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using Brocade before Pulse Secure, and then before that, we were using Riverbed and before that, we were using Azure.

What other advice do I have?

I really like this solution. I would rate it a nine out of ten. My advice to someone implementing this solution would be to use a Terraform to deploy to make it as automatic as possible.
