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.You get the value for your money. There aren't any hidden fees.I do not have any experience with the pricing of the product.We are quite happy with price. It's not too high.We have been evaluating F5, Citrix, and other ADC products. Citrix is the most expense of all of them.
