What is most valuable?

The Deterministic CGNAT feature.

How has it helped my organization?

It solved the CGNAT performance issues and, within two years, it had no problems and no outages.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see the scalability numbers for the virtualized version which are comparable to those I noted in my answer on "Scalability."

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used F5 load-balancers for the same purpose before, but those devices weren’t meant to be built for CGNAT. F5 devices built for CGNAT were also functioning well according to PoC tests.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise doing comprehensive PoC tests for your specific purpose, for all products.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Support can also be a problem if you are in the United States, as its main contact centers are in Asia. Application integration with third-party development tools is also a problem, as there are limited integration options… more »

What other advice do I have?

Overall, A10’s ADCs are a good product with the price many companies can afford and have features that even some high-end ADCs. I recommend it for those companies looking for advanced features offered by the product yet wants to keep costs down. However, the future might not be bright for this company, and I highly suggest that existing and potential users follow the progress of their legal battle… more »
