Looking for some advise. At what point does it make sense to choose Controller versus Instant? From my readings special use cases like wanting to utilize VIA would warrant having a controller. Use cases such as load or "# of AP's deployed" do not necessarily warrant a controller. Can someone please verify this and also list what other situations would make me choose one over the other?

Thanks for your response.
I do agree that VLAN's at the edge can add complexity especially as the number of edge switches increase but, do i lose any functionality when comparing the two?
Also, from a scale perspective, IF i was managing using Airwave doesn't this soemwhat become a moot point? I could have multiple L2 clusters all managed by Airwave and therefore get around the 128 access points #?
Also on a side note, is it published anywhere the recommended/supported # of Instant Access points per Cluster?

There is not 100% feature parity between Instant and controller. Please work with your Aruba team or Aruba partner to help determine which will fit.
You are correct about having multiple clusters managed with AirWave.
I believe the 128 number is stated in the release notes and user guide.
