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.

The LoadMaster we have found load balances our email servers, Citrix servers and more. Their support has been absolutely top notch, well informed, and any issues have been resolved in less than 60 minutes. I cannot say anything negative about these boxes or this company!! They are always willing to help and provide excellent customer service from prequalification to support.

Cons

A10 Thunder ADC

  • Functionalities and features do not match our needs.
  • Other vendors offer very similar characteristics for lower prices.

  • Complexity. You really need. highly skilled IT team to manage this device. This is not a solution or appliance for SME's - medium or large enterprises only!
  • Bugs, during 2015-2016 we suffered from a. number of bugs that caused downtime that would not have occurred without the Kemp LM. This is especially annoying given that it was purchased to reduce downtime! During 2017 stability improved.
  • Costs. This is a high cost solution with high ongoing support fees. Not for those who are very cost conscious

Kemp makes it very easy to setup, configure and manage the LoadMaster without needing a lot of help from their engineers. The interface is very easy to understand and intuitive to use. We like how it is not complicated - I can easily have one of my techs login and they can figure out how to setup/configure virtual services for load balancing without needing a manual or tech support.

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.

Support has been easy to deal with; I have only need[ed] to contact them a few times during setup.Once its been in place and operational, we have not need[ed] to mess with the system [which] is a huge advantage. I like system[s] that do not break and require constant attention in a production environment.

They all do the same thing, just present the functions in a different way and cost more/less. We have found that the virtual load balancers offer the same performance at the throughput that we need. While a dedicated appliance would be necessary in some applications, we don't have the need for them today and the VMs work just fine.

Return on Investment

A10 Thunder ADC

  • Allow routing instances in the device, this would increase the benefits much more and compete very well with other vendors.

  • So far it's all positive impact.
  • The cost of Kemp is very low compared to other solutions in the market, so ROI is really good.
  • For us business continuity is more important, which is provided by Kemp so overall the return is way more comparing the cost of the software.
