Quotes From Members Comparing Citrix NetScaler VPX vs KEMP LoadMaster

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
Enables a Web service that offers persistent client-server connections, IP restriction, URL rewrite (such as remove "/assets/" path from client-side URL path), and cache for CSS or JS files... You can easily use the GUI to set up all these requirements on the same network device within 20-30 minutes. (If you do the same steps on CLI, it might take less time.)If you need PCI-compliance and have high security requirements, WAF is the most valuable feature. If you need to monitor your load-balancing services with complex types of monitoring, make sure everything is alright, and load balancing is important, Content Switching and Monitoring features are the keys to your needs. If you want to provide a lot of static images or data, the Caching feature works best for you.I would say the rewriting and redirection functions are must-have's for us.

The auth website of ESP is really lacking. It’s not responsive (mobile friendly) and the procedure of changing the website is difficult. We tend to avoid using pre-auth for that reason.Several elements of the GUI need work. For example, if you have many content switches, it’s difficult to find the ones you need. And where is the search feature?If you want logging for SMTP traffic, you have to enable ESP, which requires you to define allowed IP addresses. That’s irritating, to say the least.It lacks an officially supported, well-written SCOM Management Pack.They need to improve the UI environment. Currently, it's hard to navigate and use product.Some documentation is out of date versus the new version, and things have been moved​.SNMP and/or RESTCONF management, in order to collect many counters, for plotting in a central application need to be improved.Some of the support documentation seems to make assumptions that the person installing or configuring is experienced with the product or concepts.
