The underlying product (Velocloud) is not the issue, Windstream is. Anything this company touches turns to crap.

Pros

  • An intricate system of connections that make it seem like your outside sites are all on one single LAN
  • Well priced in their category as others are a bit pricier for the same services
  • Aruba is backed by a well staffed support team that can get you through your issues

  • Failover is easy, no single point of failure, provided you have the bandwidth.

Windstream
  • While the product may work decently once implemented, Windstream is a constant roadblock.
  • Trouble issues need to be escalated before people will bother to work on them.

  • One outage on our main site cost over 500K in lost revenue for a day, Windstream was unapologetic for failing to set a QOS policy right during cutover.
  • We needed to get a building re-wired to get the install at one location going. Windstream said, let us quote it... It took them 2 months to get us a quote that was 4x higher than a local provider. Thankfully, this didn't impact the deployment schedule.
