Snapt ADC
Next-Gen Application Delivery

Snapt and F5 come from different worlds. F5 is a bricks and mortar product from the last millenium that's dominated by outdated practices: large hardware devices, deep and expensive channel and a pricing strategy that's convoluted and expensive.

Snapt has a clear and transparent pricing strategy; is software-only and capable of massive performance on simple VM servers or in containers; and includes full 24/7/365 support on all packages.

40% of Snapt clients are ex-F5 users. Time to get on board?

The primary differences between F5 and Snapt.


Snapt includes full, high-level support in all its Enterprise-level products, with SLA guarantees. F5 charges a large amount of money for the same service. Additionally, Snapt does not outsource support.


Snapt is widely considered the most attractive and user-friendly load balancing/ADC product. We offer free trials, and feature many screenshots of our product. Once you have tried the Snapt interface, you will feel the difference!


Snapt has the best cost/request and cost/SSL request. The product has no hard limits, and scales as your VM or cloud solution scales. More power means more requests – not more costs! F5 is prohibitively expensive, and you must pay extra for ADC modules.


Snapt competes with F5 on a feature-by-feature basis. But – Snapt includes ALL products and features. That means you receive all our modules – GSLB, acceleration, SSL, compression, WAF! F5 charges for each!

Software Only

Snapt is a software-only ADC solution. We do not offer a hardware appliance and do not limit our software offering to sell you hardware. The product is flexible and agile – just as a VM solution should be. F5 still focus on hardware.


All Snapt solutions from the ADC-500 up include full, free redundancy. We do not charge you for the second server, and we provide full support for both servers. F5 charges you for both servers.
