Peakflow SP with the TMS works quite well. Can be very fast once a 
threat is discovered, depending on how you set up the mitigation. If you 
use auto mitigate and anycast BGP announcements, you can get a base 
mitigation going within seconds.

Although it works quite well, it can be a bit pricey. I've seen but not 
yet played with DefensePro from Radware. I thought they also had premise 
based unit like Arbor's Pravail but I can't be sure on that.

I need it to be carrier-grade in terms of capacity and redundancy, and as far as I know, Arbor is the only product in the market which offers a "clean pipe" volume of traffic, so if the DDoS attack volume is, for example, 1Tbps, they will grant you for example 50Gbps of clean traffic.
