The Solution – A10 Networks Announces their ACE Trade-In Program!

The ACE Trade-In Program delivers the following benefits:

  • Upgrade to a feature rich AX platform built on a highly scalable, new generation architecture
  • A10 is committed to the ADC market with a clear vision, focused platform development and comprehensive roadmap
  • Consolidation of existing ACE installations at extremely high ratios, e.g. 15:1 or more
  • No licensing for hardware appliances ensures all features are readily available and no hidden fees or escalated ADC costs
  • Deployments reliant on Cisco ACE Virtual Contexts can transition to A10’s AX Series multi-tenancy solutions with Application Delivery Partitions (ADPs) or SoftAX
  • Performance to meet any requirement or peak load in compact and energy efficient 1U or 2U appliances
  • Cisco-like Command Line Interface (CLI) or advanced GUI for ease-of-use and quick staff ramp-up time, reducing retraining costs
  • Better value alternative to F5’s (FFIV) BIG-IP family, which can add hefty integration and licensing costs onto the already high price tag of F5 products

Effectively immediately, customers can upgrade existing Cisco ACE models to A10’s AX Series Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) and receive up to $24,000 plus installation and migration services with a qualified trade in.
