Our customers receive security and the capabilities to do many thing with networking, like routing and installation of networks

  • December 10, 2018
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

We have migrate our customers to the cloud along with their on-premise router. Therefore, when migrate their infrastructure to the cloud, we migrate Cisco too. This is our first use case with Cisco migrating a high availability infrastructure.
How has it helped my organization?
When the customer buys Cisco, they receive security and the capabilities to do many thing with networking, like routing and installation of networks. The most important thing is the security, as it brings assurance. This is the benefit to buying the product.
What is most valuable?
In this use case, AWS has a reference architecture to enable the Cisco routers in high availability and Transit VPC. This is a very powerful router and can enable us to use Transit VPC in AWS, and this is a very powerful feature that we use.
In security, it is a good product.
What needs improvement?
The possibility to use on-premise the same protocols as they're using on the cloud. When we want to do a high availability architecture, we have to use AWS features. The Cisco does not give you these features.
It could grow or adapt to changes in the cloud. For example, cloud does not support autoscaling. When people want to grow, they have to do manual activities.
For how long have I used the solution?
One to three years.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
Cisco is very stable and secure. I have confidence in it. I have never had a problem with Cisco.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
We have customers who have huge infrastructures, and others with small infrastructures. In terms of size, our customers have around 100 or 200 employees (or connections). Our biggest customer has approximately 3000 employees.
How was the initial setup?
The AWS integration into the environment is good. Cisco is very compatible with AWS.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
The licensing model is good with this appliance: Bring Your Own License (BYOL).
We never buy the product on the AWS Marketplace. We only download it. We always use BYOL. We never buy the license in the AWS Marketplace, because it's very expensive.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?
We also evaluate Fortinet with our customers. They generally don't want to change products, which is the main reason for staying with Cisco.
What other advice do I have?
I would recommend Cisco. It's a very powerful router and a very important player in the routers of the world. It can provide many solutions that the customer needs.
When AWS when offers Transit VPC, they always recommend Cisco.

The problems, I can not be handling important and urgent information that the problems of the connection, I do not think it is safe for the information to arrive quickly.

note if the problem to connect or that the system is closed is by the internet service or internal failures.

CSR1000V easy and effective

  • July 06, 2018
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

we use CSR1000v perpetual license using a transit VPC and put heavy traffic through them. we have around 50 VPCs and we can add new VPCs by just adding a tag in the VGW which a lambda reads and creates the tunnel between the VPC and the CSRs. its very easy to mange. we use DMVPN as well. we have used them for YEARS and find it a very valuable assets. we have Transit VPCs on east and West coasts.

The other complains make me laugh a bit, its a small thing to learn the new changes and there is plenty enough information to get them setup.

There is even a cloudformation scrip that will do it for you, but it wont take any experienced Devops engineer long to figure out how to configure it all through terraform.
