Good network integration, but the visibility of applications could be better
Pros and Cons
  • "You can integrate all the networks into the software."
  • "The visibility of applications is not great."

What is most valuable?

The HDA is part of the micro-segmentation of the network, and it can be integrated with security departments like the F5 Checkpoint Firewall Tool. You can integrate all the networks into the software and file network data center. We are looking for the load balancing and application service of Cloudflare.

What needs improvement?

The visibility of applications is not great, which is why we study upscalability. We want to understand the software-defined network and access, the edge, and how to connect. The setup is complex and could be improved. Regarding additional features, the integration with the APM would be good.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for 14 years, and it is implemented on-premises, Google Cloud, Amazon, or Azure.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a stable solution.

How would you rate customer service and support?

Positive

The setup process was complex and not simple. It's not a plug-and-play solution.

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

I rate the pricing a six out of ten, with ten being a good price.

What other advice do I have?

I rate this solution a six out of ten. It can be compared to VMWare but more as a complimentary solution than a competitor.
