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

Software Defined WAN is growing a lot this year and when we had some issues connecting to our external and remote locations we needed something that could also manage those sites in one easy place. We had trouble doing this with our existing infrastructure, but now our sites are all connected with the [Aruba Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN)] and we couldn't be happier.
  • 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
  • Ran into some weird bugs along the way that required support to address
  • Not having physical devices that you can reboot yourself takes a bit of control away
  • Administrators have a bit of a learning curve in figuring out the new system
  • ROI is still to be determined as you have to calculate the existing hardware costs
  • Theoretically you could be saving lots of time managing all the hardware in between sites
  • SDWAN is still new and may take an entirely new budget to accomplish

You really have to have the exact needs we did to require a system like this. Connecting external buildings or remote offices that don't have a great way to metro net or VPN back into the network can use this solution and it makes things alot easier. If thats your same situation this may be a simpler way to accomplish that.
