Overall Satisfaction with VMware SD-WAN (VeloCloud)

We utilize SDWAN to aggregate our 17 branch locations together to provide consistent and reliable connections for business applications.
This has provided an enhanced level of response with real time applications and allowed for seamless failover between the different connections deployed. VeloCloud's SDWAN allows for detailed real time information of aggregated links.
  • Displays real time link information and utilization statistics.
  • Allows for configuration and troubleshooting through the portal.
  • Intuitive graphical design displays easy to read statistics for QoE.
  • Some of the settings and configurations aren't as intuitive as desired.
  • The layout of the UI could be improved for better dashboard experience.
  • Ability to have more than one site/destination up at a time to compare traffic between links.
  • Reliability
  • Stability
  • Ease of Use/Monitoring
  • Inclusion of this product has led to our removal of old point to point and self managed wireless tower communication.
  • Switching to Velocloud SDWAN allowed us to remove distributed repository style framework and embrace a newer option.
  • Switching to SDWAN has already mitigated several instances of connections going down and the quick failover means there was no business interruption.
We preferred the features and UI of the Velocloud compared to FortiGate SDWAN. They seemed to offer the same sets of information in different layouts. Our company decided on Velocloud for personal/aesthetic reasons. They offered a more concise set of graphs and tables out of the box for us. SD WAN provided us a with a broader look into our connections with a more robust view, which Velocloud backed by Vmware, gave us.
