The best way to use this solution [Cisco Software SD-Access] is in Campus LAN environments, [which] could be small, medium, and large sites, that includes remote branches also. And always use with 3 node (HA) availability. This solution is not appropriate for Data Center environments. This solution is not mean[t] to connect remote sites (the WAN itself). This solution is ideal to achieve high and low level hierarchies of security and connectivity of end users in a network.

In terms of business challenges, it simplifies the job of my engineers and significantly increases the productivity of my teams when they collaborate with IBM teams all over the world. Now that we have completed a proof-of-concept using the services supplied by IBM, we expect it to assist us in managing them more efficiently; thus far, management has been straightforward.

Cons

Cisco

  • Documentation: Working in this solution I realized there were missing information details about the fusion device support for nexus.
  • Fusion router: This roll in the fabric should be already integrated in the solution, right now it is configured manually.
  • Bugs: Unfortunately the solution still present a lot of bugs, mainly in the controller.

    As far as my experience with SD-Access -I'd say things that can be improved are - better functionality with ISE, ease to understand licensing and better documentation for configuration (add-ons, etc), and licensing.

    I have used Salesforce to explore it as an app but I have found them both able to solve my needs and requirements when it comes to security. While I choose IBM Cloud Internet Services for more accessibility, a better price was available with Saleforce. Although that is just my observation.
