Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
I do not have any experience with the pricing of the product.We are quite happy with price. It's not too high.The licencing model that we bought has been good. The licencing model is more flexible.We have been evaluating F5, Citrix, and other ADC products. Citrix is the most expense of all of them.It is true that it is a bit pricey compared to newer technologies coming to the market. For example, A10 is a load balancer that does everything that Citrix can and it does a lot more than what NetScaler does when it comes to the security space, and their prices are so cheap. Every box comes with its own license and support built into it. When you compare that with NetScaler, you have to buy licenses separately, you have to buy a support agreement that is going to be separate. A small NetScaler, even if it is a VPX which is a virtual server, could cost you close to $150,000 to $200,000 dollars. So the pricing is really high.It all depends on the features that will be used and the number of accesses.Costly product and complicated licensing.It's not for startups or SOHO.
