ACE versus CCS.

Unanswered Question
Oct 18th, 2009

Hi all,

can someone help me what is better to use? We are planning to create Data center with Cat6500 so there is possibility to insert ACE module, but ACE is a quite expensive to CSS.

On the other side, is it possible to virtualize CSS as ACE?



I have this problem too.

You should not be comparing ACE module with CSS appliance.

CSS appliance can be compared with ACE 4710 appliance which is not as expensive as ACE module.Ace module is needed when more throughput is needed ( more than supported by ACE appliance).

Since there is no active development for CSS its not advisable to deploy CSS in new Data Centers.

CSS cannot be virtualized.

I believe you will also find if you look at ACE 4710 appliance as well as ACE 4G module, pricing is commensurate or even better than that for same/similar CSS.
