Overall Satisfaction with Aruba Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN)

Aruba Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) is being used as a means to centralize some specific remote sites in our organization. It's a way to centrally manage them as opposed to the problem of managing each specific router at each site as a solo network. It helps us solve the issue of deploying rules and changes separately, which would be much more time consuming.
  • The software and web interface is nicely designed
  • Fewer bugs than some other competing services
  • The right support team for your product can be difficult to get ahold of
  • Integration with Cisco is not as super tight as integration with Aruba devices
  • Some of the advanced features are difficult to use
  • It has created a bit of overhead as another control panel that needs to be managed
  • Recovery of invested costs will take some time
  • Time is saved on the separate management of sites

While I do believe the product to do most of its features quite well, it's when you want to delve into the deeper functions that things get a little less clear and sometimes confusing. And getting a technician who knows the product well can be a tough task. For users with a large Aruba network, it is a great tool however.
