F5 BIG-IP Stability

Thomas Hejula
Senior IT Engineer at Lumeris
It seems very stable. I've had no problems with stability at all. It's been rock solid, from the perspective of staying in line and working as expected. I did individual testing. We were doing very small tests to start, 25 megabits. So, I was driving close to 25 megabits through it. Memory and CPU, I thought might be a bit of a concern, but overall it seemed good. It was doing what I needed it to do, and doing it well, so I didn't notice anything in my traffic. View full review »

It is a stable product. It runs on TMOS, traffic management operating system. This is very stable. If they see that an upgrade required, they provide you the release and they provide you the release notes, so you can upgrade your TMOS version and at any time. You can also open a case and they can guide you on how to upgrade your TMOS version. They also keep an eye on vulnerability. If there is a bug or any sort of vulnerability in their operating system, they will immediately release an update. So the product is so much more stable compared to any load balancers on the planet at the moment. View full review »

It is very stable. It's a pretty solid product. Our clients use it pretty heavily. Most all of them are production workloads and some of them are external facing workloads, so you can see seasonal peaks. View full review »

It is very stable. I have no concerns regarding stability for F5. We are seasonal, so we go from low to high volumes. F5 has never been a concern of ours for stability. View full review »

The stability seems fine. We provide fault tolerance with HA, so we have two of them up and running. We have built in integration. Therefore, we do not worry about workload issues View full review »

Overall, it's stable. There are cases which are not so much about stability but, rather, about functionality and false positives. View full review »
