VMware has been chosen by many of our customers who do not want to do a lot of complex routing in their environment and want a very easy-to-use solution. The most valuable features are simple troubleshooting, Dynamic Multipath Optimization (DMPO), and cybersecurity.

They have a lot of built-ins. There are so many applications defined inside the solution. It makes it so that we don't have to create some policies. Each and every application is already defined in it.

Anyone can migrate over to VeloCloud, it's that simple, just plug in the necessary cables and it's done.

It is fairly similar to other solutions. It has the capability for testing link connectivity, which is its unique feature from a control perspective.

VMware SD-WAN Cons

Sami-Isoaho - PeerSpot reviewer
Principal Cloud Architect at Loihe
Implementing VMware is much more difficult, time-consuming, and expensive than implementing Fortinet or Check Point.

In an upcoming release, they should allow customers the flexibility to use mobile applications where they can go and check on the information about their networks. A lot of vendors, such as Meraki, have a lot more integration with the use of portals to a mobile application. Having this feature as an alternative to logging into a laptop would be beneficial. If you are a SaaS-based company why not make a mobile application as well. You might not be able to do configurations but at least monitor while away or on vacation.

The solution doesn't offer failover between their own devices. If I want to, I should be able to put the two devices at the side, so there can be a failover.

They need to start focusing on the security functionality. They should find a way to embed the next-generation firewall functionality within the architecture. They should move more into applying SASE tenants to what they're doing.
