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

Pros
The SSL Layer 7 load balancing is valuable.We now get notifications when pool members go down, and we eliminate our downtime by not sending traffic to downed pool members.​With basic network knowledge, our required system functionality can be configured and maintained.​The load balancers have an easy installation and a relatively simple, easy user interface to use.We have about 30,000 connections going through at any one time and it's fine, it doesn't seem to sweat. It doesn't get overloaded.Most important for us that it makes sure that the load is distributed and that we always have access to the end servers.The user interface precludes need to be well versed with Linux IPVS command line. This make it easy for junior team members to participate in managing load balancing needs.It does what it’s supposed to do which is balancing an important intranet site we are using, so if one server dies, the second becomes active straight away.

The most valuable aspect is that it establishes user security.I am finding SSL-TLS acceleration the most valuable function, with certificate management. It is easy to generate certificates and assign them to services

Cons
Originally we had some stability issues with it, so they replaced it with a new box and it's fine.​I would like a notification when a new version of the software is available. They told me to sign up for their newsletter, but I have not received any notification for a newer software version.​Possibly a more graphical overview page (with colors) to give a two second overview to see if everything is working fine.​The automatic refresh of the System Overview webpage: It sometimes has an extra webpage reload (after a change) before you see it is executed. This can be confusing.They're mostly designed to balance a particular type of traffic. I wanted to load balance DNS, and they just don't do it the way that we wanted to. So they're not used as DNS load balancers.It would be great if there was a way to gain access to the graphing data, to create custom reports. If we had a way to use the graphing data, we could use it to present certain information to our client, such as the uptime status for their service.If I have to say something, I suppose they could add an automated configuration backup to an FTP location (or something similar) so you don’t have to manually do it. I don’t see this as a problem, of course, as the configuration rarely changes and we only need one backup, but maybe for other users that feature would be handy.

I would like for the load balancing to work with premier and the cloud, a mix of premium and cloud.

Pricing and Cost Advice
They're not the cheapest, not the most expensive, but I think value-wise, they're 100%.It filled a requirement for our project, and it did so at lesser cost than their competitors.​These guys make their pricing scheme really easy.​It is inexpensive, and even their “unlimited” version, the VA MAX is still far cheaper than competitors.I love that they do not price on some arbitrary throughput rating where you are guessing at what the load balancer is going to handle.We've got an unlimited license, which doesn't costs that much compared to other vendors, and we don't have to buy it again.It was easy to upgrade the license for unlimited clusters and servers. Pricing is fair.I think it’s very affordable.
