We performed a comparison between F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) and Peplink SpeedFusion based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about F5, Microsoft, Citrix and others in Application Delivery Controllers (ADC).
"What we like best about this solution is its stability. It is extremely stable."
"I think F5's tech support may be better than Citrix's because they mainly focus on the ADC product, but Citrix support covers Hypervisor, XenMobile, FAS, and ADC. And from my experience, sometimes, we face some issues that Citrix cannot handle."
"We enjoy its overall ease of use."
"The scalability of the solution depends on the sizing of the network. Generally, the scalability is quite good."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is IP Intelligence."
"There is a lot of documentation available."
"Bandwidth optimization and capacity awareness of the bandwidth are valuable features. Its video streaming capabilities are also very useful."
"In my team, we work in a very agile environment and the solutions from BIG-IP, including BIG-IP WAF, suit us well when developing and serving our applications."
"Our customers find it to be an interesting and tempting solution."
"The SpeedFusion feature is good. It allowed us to move away from IPsec between the sites. It is also a really easy product to deploy."
"The solution is scalable."
"An expensive solution for the minimal features we use."
"F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager is sometimes a bit cumbersome to deal with some builds, although that's gotten significantly better over the years."
"The solution could improve the documentation."
"For a future release, I would like to see more features in the cloud."
"A lot of functions that are attributed to iRules can actually be simple profile changes. iRules do have a certain performance impact. Therefore, instead of writing simple iRules, they can create certain profiles for classes that will perform the same function."
"It reaches a point where scaling is no longer possible."
"A more hybrid approach would be beneficial for users."
"Their hardware support isn't the greatest. We've had one unit go down, and it took a while for them to replace it. It was in the Caribbeans, so it might be a location-related issue."
"They don't have next generation firewall, UTM, like the other competitors."
