What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the Dynamic Multipath Optimization (DMPO), which allows the customer to maintain and monitor their link quality in real-time. It will tell them whether the performance is good, bad, or degrading. This solution… more »

What needs improvement?

VeloCloud needs improvement in terms of its security features. It needs to work with third-party vendors such as Fortinet, Check Point, or Palo Alto because at an increasing rate, and because of new rules for compliance, organizations… more »

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

The price of this solution is higher than that of other SD-WAN vendors.

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

We also work with Forcepoint SD-WAN and we have tried other solutions as well. Some of these include Riverbed and Fortinet. One of the big differences between VeloCloud and the other vendors is the speed and ease of deployment. VeloCloud is… more »

What other advice do I have?

We have been using multiple versions of this solution. We have been using the software as well as different Edge devices including the Edge 510 series and the Edge 520 series. The 510 series is the most common one. Most of the deployments… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for one of our customers is the ability to stage cloud workloads from the local network.

What needs improvement?

This solution needs a local gateway for the cloud in every country. The gateway is used to set up cloud access and one of my clients had a bad experience with the local partner that was trying to set one up. Technical support is in need of improvement.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend using this solution. It is a good product and if the support were improved then it would be even better. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

VeloCloud performs as well as the Cisco SD-WAN but it is cheaper in price.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the dynamic multipath optimization. This is something that other competing products do not have. Zero-touch provisioning makes it very easy to set up. The single path optimization features are useful.

What needs improvement?

There is no security included, which is something that should be improved. For example, they should at least include basic firewall capabilities.

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

The pricing is very comparable to Fortinet.

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

Prior to VeloCloud, we used Fortinet. However, the SD-WAN is not as good, which is why we switched over.

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I like. For anybody looking for an SD-WAN, this is a really good option, and probably one of the best. My only real complaint is about the lack of security. If security is their primary goal, then I would suggest… more »

What is most valuable?

I like the agility to be able to direct the application-flow per packet across both WAN links and transport links and I think they're the only vendors that currently do that. Normally a vendor will say that each site has a primary and standby WAN connection, but that they can only send the TCP… more »

What needs improvement?

Improvement could be made in understanding application profiles and definitions. I'd like to see improvements in ease of deployment, making it easier to deploy and integrate.

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

It's quite an expensive solution compared to other vendors but there are no fees in addition to the standard licensing costs. There weren't any additional features that had cost implications.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.

What is most valuable?

The dashboard is very comprehensive, where you can see all of the sites with a map. You can click through using the map, which is easy to do. They make use of a combination of different internet lines, which improves quality.

What needs improvement?

There is room for improvement with respect to security. The price of this solution should be lower.

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

As consultants, we have worked with several vendors simultaneously. We are independent and we do not propose a particular technology. Rather, we conduct and exercise with our clients and determine the best vendor based on that.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this is a good product but there is always room for improvement. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

What do you think of VeloCloud?

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is in companies that have multiple office locations, say a minimum of 10. They are connected to the internet using line or broadband internet connectivity. There can be a lot of fluctuations and connectivity issues so bandwidth is our current focus. VeloCloud is a software layer which helps customers manage the connectivity in the console. In the event that there is any downtime coming up into the secondary line of the bandwidth, the language will be correct. The solution proactively detects where the problem could happen or could arise. Users who are using the applications would not even know whether there was a downtime.

What needs improvement?

The product could be improved if the reports were modified making…
