Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"One of the most valuable features of this solution is the server load balancing. Something that sets this solution apart from other products is that the hardware has a much higher capacity than other vendors. That's the edge of Array Networks. Their technical support services are also very good."
"The most valuable feature is the SSL VPN."
"Content Switching provides flexibility for routing traffic as desired to designated real servers. It also provides good geo capabilities through its GSLB feature."
"The flexibility in configuration options is impressive."
"One of the most beneficial features for application delivery is its integration with Citrix Storefront, facilitating user logins and ensuring continuity during data center outages."
"It is the best product out there."
"The most valuable features of Citrix ADC are load balancing and application firewall."
"The best feature of Citrix is its track record of stability in its features."
"One feature that works really well is the SSL VPN. It's very easy to set up and you can go very granular with it. You can define what user groups get what kind of access and the management overhead is very low."
 

Cons

"I would like to see more granular reporting and monitoring features, and I believe our clients want to see them as well. Also, SD-WAN would be a good addition."
"The technical support has room for improvement."
"I will try to migrate all the tools to the cloud because there is more lab and more VPN scalability available in the cloud. It is not available on-premises."
"Technical support sometimes takes a little longer because of the multilevel ticket priority."
"Its GUI should be improved. Its CLI is powerful, but GUI needs more features."
"The solution should be able to scale more effectively than it does."
"Improvements are needed to address the issue of machines becoming unregistered, ensuring stability for end users. Troubleshooting with Citrix support can be challenging, so clearer diagnostics would be beneficial. As for global server load balancing, it works well on-premises, depending on user volume and service stability. Overall, it's satisfactory for us."
"Does not include security. A web application firewall would be a nice addition."
"There are certain features that are very useful and Citrix makes you pay a bit more for them."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"I think the price for Array APV is very competitive, and some of our clients are very satisfied when it comes to the price."
"Ninety day free trial makes it easy to try out this solution."
"Citrix NetScaler's pricing is slightly above average but not overly expensive. I would consider F5 BIG IP to be the most expensive, Citrix NetScaler to be the second most expensive, and then Kemp Load Balancer to be the third."
"The license for Citrix NetScaler is on an annual basis and it is reasonably priced."
"Citrix NetScaler VPX is not the cheapest solution out there, but you get what you pay for."
"We are quite happy with price. It's not too high."
"We get value for money. Its price is fair. I don't think it is overpriced."
"This product is more expensive than some of the competitors."
"NetScaler does the same thing as an F5 and it's cheaper."
