I'm content with Alteon's pricing. The licensing is a little bit complicated because it's based on how much bandwidth you want to use, what the throughput is. Instead of having a throughput limit, it just allows whatever the bandwidth is and bases the licensing on vADCs (virtual application delivery controllers) only. That makes it a little bit complicated.

The pricing is better than the competition. It is getting more pricey as the years go on, as more people are migrating to it, and as the technology gets better. But the pricing is competitive with, or cheaper than, the other solutions out there. We don't use the GEL (Global Elastic License yet, but we will be moving to it soon.

Radware is a very budget-friendly device. It is not too expensive.

I do not have specific details about the costs. There is a licensing fee, and they have an SSL transaction license and others. They have two or three licenses that you pay based on the volume.

We have a permanent license, not an annual one. I'm unaware of the cost.

I have no idea about the price, but the organization I was working for was always looking for economical products. So I would assume the price was quite competitive. I would definitely recommend Radware load balancer to organizations around the globe that don't have a huge budget.

The pricing is much more reasonable than, for example, F5, our old solution. I’m not sure how much the solution costs. However, my understanding is that it is moderately priced. I’d rate it a three out of five in terms of affordability. It’s not cheaper. However, it is less expensive than F5.

It has a good price point and is more reasonable than other comparable products.

The licensing processes are easy and the costs are acceptable. We use permanent licenses and we have not had any problems.

It's very expensive but it's worth it for the computer, system, and network.

For ADC both are very good, But in the leader in Gartner of ADC products, the tops rivals are Citrix ADC and F5  They are very good and can do the job but only some major differences to consider are. Citrix ADC -  Has App Expert Wizard which is a GUI ready to use to build simple to complex traffic syntax rule easily. Any admin that has some good background sees this syntax can understand and configure, it is very easy. This is good for a big complex environment or in case your network admin leaves the job and new one comes to take the role. GUI; Travesing each menu is very easy as they are all in the same pattern with every feature. F5 - Use the iRule, which does the same job. If you like to write programming code with lots of { {   } }, etc, it's ok. But for many admin teams, it may be hard to troubleshoot the traffics rules if the guy who wrote the rule left, not that hard to learn but still harder than GUI. GUI- F5 GUI is sometimes too complex than needed, sometimes it's left, right, under have to drill down a lot just to get to the simple tasks. Overall there are both good.
