I'm looking for information on the ACE 4710 appliance's capability as compared to the CSS product line. I've been using the CSS product for many years in mostly web-hosting environments, and find that 80-90% of the implementations are using the same features. I would like to know if these features are available in the ACE product line, as well as any other general feedback with the ACE regarding things to look out for. A typical CSS design includes the following features:
1) ACA balancing.
2) Arrowpoint cookie for session persistence.
3) HTTP to HTTPS redirection.
4) SSL offload.
5) Persistence remap.
6) HA through VIP and virtual-interface redundancy.
7) DQL for multiple domains using same rule.
8) Destination server NAT'ing
I've read through the ACE config guide and see that most of these are supported on the ACE, and if not, comparable replacement commands are available.
Comments on the availability and use of these features in ACE is greatly appreciated, as are any other comments about ACE behavior vs CSS behavior.
