"I think installation only took a couple of minutes — no more than 10 minutes."

Cons
"In terms of improvement, the pricing and documentation need improvement. We have had problems getting the documents.""I did not go with it because their APM module is a different product altogether. It's a common thing that companies do. They sell something and then they add on top of it as a different product. It is a type of marketing strategy. But when it comes to the overall management, it takes a lot of time to really look into it."

"The scaling should be built into the software rather than configured from an outside source."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"With Avi Networks, you can buy a 10-Gig license and, if your primary data center goes down, in the flick of a switch you can move that license to your backup data center and it will generate the traffic... there are a lot of cost-effective measures."
