Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not have a previous solution. We went with Exinda because it works. It did what we wanted it to do, in terms of optimizing WAN traffic and our business saw a benefit as a result.

What needs improvement?

It will be great to get ability to work with in cloud infrastructures.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

They offer scalable licenses. These licenses can be on different types of solutions; small boxes for a desktop or solutions for data centers. You can choose a big server but not have a big license or you can choose not a big solution for the desktop but have a big license.

What other advice do I have?

My advice would be to be sure to choose the right license. They have a lot of options with a lot of features but you have to be sure to choose the license type that you need. I would rate Exinda an eight out of ten. In the next release, I would like to have the ability to work with the cloud.
