User friendly, easy implementation, but expensive
Pros and Cons
  • "The solution is user-friendly and the CLA troubleshooting is easier compared to other solutions."
  • "There are competitors that have more features."

What is our primary use case?

We are in the government sector and we use this solution for load balancing and application management.

What is most valuable?

The solution is user-friendly and the CLA troubleshooting is easier compared to other solutions.

What needs improvement?

There are competitors that have more features.

In a future release, I would like to see VAS, application policy management, profiling, and the SSL encryption and decryption features should be on the system instead of having a separate SSLi system. Additionally, they should combine the products into one solution instead of having separate products, such as encryption and decryption, and load balancing.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for approximately four years.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good.

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

I previously used F5 BIG-IP.

How was the initial setup?

The implementation is easy.

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

The price of the maintenance support is too expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have evaluated Avi Networks.

What other advice do I have?

If someone has experience in Cisco Networks, the CLA hierarchy and configuration are 90% the same making this solution easier to use.

I rate A10 Networks Thunder ADC a seven out of ten.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
