Services versus CPE owned/operated appliances

What do you see as the criteria that should be used when deciding whether to deploy one's own solution using available appliances as opposed to contracting for a service that enhances application delivery?


A server is a good fit if you are working with other companies. The reason is that there are no standards in this new area, so unless the two companies agree to get equipment from the same vendor the application delivery systems will not be able to work together. Since most companies have multiple partners this makes it even more complicated. As for buy a solution or getting a service for internal use that should be decided just like any buy/outsource decision.
