When compared to other solutions, the cost is high.Our licensing fees including technical support are approximately $3,500 USD.The licensing costs for this solution vary depending on which model is being used.Citrix NetScaler VPX is not the cheapest solution out there, but you get what you pay for.We have a yearly licencing fee, and there are no additional costs.Ninety day free trial makes it easy to try out this solution.Licensing is adequate. I wanted to have a more prominent license, but until I do they don't give enough support. The additional cost would be too much.NetScaler does the same thing as an F5 and it's cheaper.
