Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"What our customers like the most is that this device is so rugged. It has very good performance and throughput. Its console is very easy to use and has many features, which makes it different from its competitors. Cloud IQ has all the features built into the console, whereas other solutions require you to integrate multiple solutions with their consoles. You don't need to add anything extra with Cloud IQ. With this single solution, you can do almost everything.""The technical support for this solution is good.""The support organization behind this product is extremely professional.""I like ExtremeCloud IQ's unified single-pane-of-glass dashboard. It offers a lot of visibility of performance, and it's great for troubleshooting. You don't have to go to 55 different places. You can get the information you need with just a few clicks.""The most valuable feature is the centralized management capability.""ExtremeCloud offers features that not a lot of other vendors do like their data storage and the ability to swap licenses.""Its configuration and deployment are the most valuable."

Cons
"I would like to see more security features such as NAC integrated to the solution. This would allow customers to be able to control all other users under one dashboard.""The licensing model could be improved.""ExtremeCloud should invest in an SD-WAN solution or integration with SD-WAN.""Having a wizard for customers who are just starting might be helpful.""The managing of switches within this solution could be improved.""Its price could be lower. It is a simplified solution, but it has price challenges. It is costly as compared to other solutions. It has almost everything. The only thing is that MAC is not possible on the cloud, and it has to be on-premises.""They can improve just the onboarding process. More user information about the introduction to the product would be helpful. It would be good if they have a better user introduction to the new product because it is different than the prior version."

"The support on offer to other vendors switching - like Aruba or Ruckus - could be improved.""The solution could offer more integration with other products.""We would prefer it if the solution could be less expensive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I did a multi-year license. It was a three-year license. It compares well with others in terms of the price. It is about a hundred dollars per year on a three-year scale."
  • "It is not the cheapest product but I think that the price is reasonable because you get a lot of support of it's needed."
  • "It is costly as compared to Meraki, Aruba, Juniper, and Cisco. Cloud IQ is an enterprise solution, whereas Meraki is specifically a single solution."
  • "The price was okay."
  • "It is easy for customers to use this product because they are able to interchange the license depending on their usage rather than having to buy individual licenses for each asset."
  • "This solution offers annual licensing that is middle of the range in terms of cost."
