ACE vs Radware WSD

I am in need to defend the Cisco ACE vs the Radware WSD as a load balancing solution. Can you give me talking points as to why the ACE is better than the WSD?

That doesn't help. I would assume Cisco would have some comparative document vs the competitors.

Something like this:


Re: ACE vs Radware WSD

About two years ago i had a similar issue with Citrix Netscaler vs. Cisco ACE(CSM).

I don't think there is a doc showing the advantages of an ACE vs. the competitors in marketing lingo.

What i did was to check out the technical specs of the Netscaler Series and compare it vs. the ACE in terms of connection per second, SSL setups, throughput, general features and scalability of the product. I had to do an internal presentation to convince the management part. It is kind of annoying to do stuff like this as tech but it helps keeping the disfavored toys out of the system. :)

If you already have a lot of Cisco equipment, pointing out that sticking to a vendor will probably support the manageability/maintainability of the network could also be a feasible argument.
