We chose A10 ADC as our server load balancer platform because of their impressive interface and competitive price, plus the first class customer service and response from the A10 team. A10 ADC balances the user connections over our JD Edwards Enterprise Resource Planning software and Windows 2003 Terminal Servers. There is a far more even distribution of load after implementing A10.
We selected A10 Networks as it delivers the most capable solution. We look forward to a successful partnership with A10 to deliver powerful, carrier class IPv4/IPv6 solutions to help our global customers preserve investments while providing a clear path to IPv6, efficiently and affordably.
We have total confidence in moving forward and implementing the A10 Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) as best-of-breed. These guys are serious, and their support is just as serious as their hardware. A10 Networks’ equipment is the only choice in an extremely high-density environment, which fits our business model perfectly.
Customers trust C4L to protect them from the crippling effects of a vast array of escalating multi-vector DDoS attacks on a daily basis. Thunder TPS 3.2 greatly expands our effectiveness through the surgical nature of the countermeasures, the comprehensive baselining, anomaly detection capabilities, and detailed monitoring.
We considered adding application acceleration features to our F5 BIG-IP server load balancers, but the licensing fees were very high. After evaluating the A10 ADC, we learned that we could provide faster acceleration, at half the price. With A10 all features are included, so we no longer have to dip into our budget in the future for more features or performance. In addition, we now have the latest state-of-the art architecture – and our entire school is benefiting from faster, more responsive applications.
Small business customer success online is largely influenced by the technology and support employed. Using A10, we are able to provide the same, top-level service our nearly 11 million customers have come to expect while improving reliability and keeping costs down.
Once a potential buyer test drives one of our vehicles, the rest is easy. I feel the same way about A10's AX Series of appliances - once you try them you'll be sold... While we were originally drawn to the AX's application acceleration features, the recent enhancements to the AX Virtualization Multi-tenancy feature will allow us to consolidate our Microsoft Exchange 2010 environment and our web environment to a single pair of appliances, with high availability. This reduces the amount of Application Delivery Controllers in our network and saves us money in the process.
The cost for 80 Gb of throughput was less than that of 24 Gb from another vendor, and we got 4 boxes instead of two, allowing us to provide a multi-site clustered solution that we frankly could not afford from the competing vendors. A10's port density alone allows us to remove DMZ switches, as we can provide load-balanced DMZ connectivity with some of the 1 Gb Ports on the A10 ADCs at each production site. This saves us an additional four switches.
We always look to partner with best-of-breed infrastructure and service providers. It gives us the confidence needed to run our service at the levels our customers expect from Box. A10 Networks falls into this top category and we're pleased to standardize on A10 for our application load-balancing needs.
We chose A10 Networks for our application delivery needs because its application feature set is of exceptional value. The pricing model of an all-inclusive feature set alleviates management headaches and also provides massive cost savings for required advanced features.
