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.

Pros

Citrix SD-WAN (formerly Netscaler SD-WAN)

  • Excellent integration with the Citrix Cloud Connector makes it a breeze to use.
  • Access control is locked down with biometric security and easy password creation.
  • License usage is always 100% secure.

  • Ease of setup: after unpacking the device, you can have your VC appliance up and running within minutes.
  • Now that VMWare owns the Velocloud solution, I believe that they will be able to invest in the product to say fresh and ahead of the competition.
  • The technical support is one of the best I have ever interacted with and continue to follow up until the issue is resolved.

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.

Return on Investment

Citrix SD-WAN (formerly Netscaler SD-WAN)

  • 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.

  • Eliminate the cost of an MPLS circuit.
  • Ease of deployment: the amount of time saved when adding additional sites to the solution, especially when you have a profile already built and when you add a new VC you just associate that profile with that appliance. Again, in a matter of minutes, you can have a new site up and running.
  • Since there is not true firewall built-in, you would have to either purchase a third-party firewall or the virtual firewall that is supported by Velocloud.
