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.

With proper design, VMware NSX can and should be deployed to virtually any VMware virtualization environment, but the deployment should be tailored to the needs of that environment. There isn't really a one size fits all deployment design for all environments. That versatility is what provides its greatest strength to a business.

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 use both Cisco ACI and VMware NSX, and while they have different strengths and capabilities, I would recommend VMware NSX, as it can be used in all VMware environments, without costly physical infrastructure changes. Cisco ACI provides some of the same capabilities, but not all. It's focus relies on physical networking changes.

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.

  • Ability to move workloads more easily with the ability to stretch/move networks across multiple physical locations.
  • The added flexibility allows you to expedite tech refreshes since you're no longer constrained by the hardware.
