Citrix SD-WAN (formerly Netscaler SD-WAN)

Any organization with a robust IT support network and with 100+ users, all the way up to international conglomerates with millions of workers. The only situation I can see where it might be harder is if you have a very small business with limited technical know-how. Otherwise, it's honestly the no-brainer choice.

This is well suited when you need to deploy a virtual router to provide SD-WAN services across multiple sites. This works great for small businesses since they added firewall services. The price and feature set are also great for mid-sized enterprises due to the ability to manage multiple appliances with templates, central reporting, and ability to provide high availability of the appliances with VRRP.

Cons

Citrix SD-WAN (formerly Netscaler SD-WAN)

  • Managing more and more routers can add complexity with templates.
  • Documentation around internal routing protocol they use is confusing.
  • Boost add-on was oversold by pre-sales team and not helpful during testing.

Support is great and easy to work with. They have local engineers that can help design and walk you through implementations. The engineers are generally committed to your success and very helpful in training. Multiple times we have worked with engineers to help us implement OSPF across sites as well as VRRP to provide high failover options.

After a lengthy vendor selection process we determined that CloudBridge was the best solution—although as always with demos it was difficult to tell if we'd really made the right decision. Since selecting CloudBridge—hough I have had lots of input from colleagues who use other systems—I feel very happy with our choice. The feature set alone is just far superior.

We currently have almost all Cisco Meraki and would have loved to keep the product portfolio the same. Silver Peak was far cheaper and offered far more features. A lot of our evaluation showed that NGFW offers SD-WAN but it is not a full-featured deployment. Silver Peak is by and large better at being able to use both links at once, offer failover, QoS, and central reporting.

Return on Investment

  • Tremendous savings from high uptime percent.
  • Keeping our remote users engaged and stable at work means we can hire anywhere on earth.
  • Access control keeps our IT team from constantly being tied up with password resets.

Silver Peak VX

  • Able to get rid of MPLS
  • No more router hardware costs
  • Able to use both WAN links instead of one being only failover
