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.

Radware

Radware Alteon Provide Multiple functionalities such as Load Balancing, SSL offloading, etc. If a customer has multiple application servers or multiple WAN links, then Alteon is recommended. Because if the customer has only a single server that is serving clients, then Alteon can't distribute the traffic to another server, and the load balancing will not happen.

Radware

  • The software web application is beyond terrible, in most of the cases the web was broken or did not have similar functionality the command line interface had.
  • The command line interface wasn't a natural looking interface, it was very fumbled and while it ran on Linux, the interface was all menus and sub-menus.
  • When enabling different pools for different web services, when a new pool was activated, the old pool connections were all reset instead of allowing HTTP sessions to naturally expire.

      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.

      We moved away from Alteon to F5 BigIP LTM and just by swapping out the hardware, we saw 40% speed increase in our applications. Everything else is much improved as well, from the web interface to the command line to the API.

      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.
