We are looking at getting a ADC/WAF/LB combination and are considering Pulse, Netscaler and F5.
The Pulse reps are touting a fully virtual solution that uses a central bandwidth pool that can be deployed as any type of service that we want. Basically they are saying that if we get 2GB of traffic capacity, we can spin up as many ADC/WAF/TM/LB, either internal or external, and only pay for the capacity with no additional cost for the vAppliances.
Has anyone else looked at this solution? This came from Brocade, but originally I think it was called Zeus Technology.
This looks like a pretty cost effective solution, as we won't need to buy an appliance each time we want a new App deployed, and can dedicate an ADC per APP.
