Cons
"In terms of improvement, the pricing and documentation need improvement. We have had problems getting the documents.""I did not go with it because their APM module is a different product altogether. It's a common thing that companies do. They sell something and then they add on top of it as a different product. It is a type of marketing strategy. But when it comes to the overall management, it takes a lot of time to really look into it."

More Avi Networks Software Load Balancer Cons →

"It would be good if they built in a fully functional web application firewall.""Technical support and documentation could both be improved.""Issues with SSL and encrypted traffic.""The initial setup could be simplified.""The configuration is relatively complex."

    Top Answer: 
    For ADC, any ADC can do a good job. But in case if you want to add WAF functionality to the same ADC hardware you have to look for other ADC's like F5, Imperva, Radware, Fortinet, etc. 
    Top Answer: 
    I like the solution's load balance with DNS intelligence.
