I recommend it but would like to mention that the buyer should analyze their needs very well and perform exhaustive service tests prior to purchase.

Microsoft

For building scalable and highly available applications, Azure Application Gateway does most of the job on behalf of you; automatically load-balancing traffic from a number of users to a number of back-end servers. This ensure scalability and availability. The in-built security is great as can be expected from Microsoft, and user has a variety of tools for monitoring the health of the load-balancing function as well as the health of back end servers behind it.

      Support said the devices will work in our environment but when we had the device working we realized that it was not possible to do what we wanted, for this reason, our experience was not entirely good and we did not like the way they approached us for the sale of the device.

      I don’t like that it's part of the Microsoft brand. In general, I am not a fan of Microsoft products but Azure gets it right.

      NGINX and Kong are open sources and we don't like open-source. We want an enterprise application that helps us in the production workload.

      Return on Investment

      A10 Networks

      • A10 Thunder ADC had a negative impact on the company, due to the fact that the client had to monitor a large number of sites, which could not be achieved with this device.
      • This led to looking for another alternative.
      • It is more beneficial for companies that do not need to monitor a large number of websites as the security and stability provided by the device are excellent.

      • Costs increased for the company, so expenses were more than before.
      • Was able to get better user experience so users won't feel the website is useless.
