Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It helps us to route the traffic to the available servers. If we didn't have Loadbalancer we would fail to set the end-user and it would cause a failure in the cluster.""For now, it's stable."

More Loadbalancer.org Pros »

"I think installation only took a couple of minutes — no more than 10 minutes."

More NGINX Plus Pros »

Cons
"There are many features you can set in the backend of Loadbalancer. They should simplify the configuration. The administrator should be able to configure it more simply. How it is now, you can only configure it if you have a lot of experience.""It doesn't have the bonding capability feature."

More Loadbalancer.org Cons »

"The scaling should be built into the software rather than configured from an outside source."

More NGINX Plus Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Compared to other similar solutions on the market, I think it's over-priced."
