Good feature set and is simple to deploy
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable aspect of this solution is that it is simple to deploy. The deployment took us ten minutes."
  • "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."

What is our primary use case?

It's a load balancer for our front end application. We use the on-prem deployment model. 

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 standard licensing. There are bandwidth prices.

The feature set is quite good. We've been told to stop using them because of the price. If they can do something to address that I believe it would be better. On the latest version they've got a community edition, which is quite a good bandwidth, but in essence, it's to address the entry-level price. When you get to 10 gig bandwidth, it's way too expensive.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for around two years.

Application Delivery Controllers (ADC)
July 2022
Find out what your peers are saying about Pulse Secure, HAProxy, F5 and others in Application Delivery Controllers (ADC). Updated: July 2022.
622,063 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is quite stable. We haven't had any fall over. The only one problem we had was that the Terraform provider. If you put the wrong IP address into the Terraform via the API, then it crashes the node.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. We have several teams, but the actual users of the load balancer would be the internet.

We don't have plans to increase usage because it's too expensive. My corporation prefers to use F5.

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.
