Good support, highly scalable, and compliments business continuity plans

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and F5 DNS Delivery is one of the products that we implement for our customers. This product is normally deployed for high application availability. That means we use the local traffic manager module the most. The DNS module is used for global server load-balancing and fail-over across data centers.

Pros and Cons

  • "F5 technical support is quite good and they follow up if there are any issues."
  • "I would like to see deeper integration with VMware in the sense that F5 compliments VMware, in the context of application availability."

What other advice do I have?

We're doing a campaign now to question our customers about business resilience using the F5 product. Most customers have invested in business continuity but sometimes they find that what they have done doesn't conform to their own business continuity plans. We go into this type of environment and introduce F5 to ensure that their continuity plans are on point. In summary, this is a good product and I recommend it. That said, no product is perfect. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
