Oracle Web Portal
We considered adding application acceleration features to our F5 BIG-IP server load balancers, but the licensing fees were very high. After evaluating A10's AX Series, we learned that we could provide faster acceleration, at half the price.
Todd Marsh, Principal Network Engineer, Bentley University
We chose A10 Networks primarily for the flexibility of the architecture. The ability for us to create various virtual Application Delivery Controllers within the AX Series and still maintain performance was very important. Additionally, ease of configuration and cost compared to our previous solution was very appealing.
