What is most valuable?

The most important feature is the fact it was recommended by the supplier. The previous load balancers weren't a very good match for what we were trying to do. They work. It just keeps going. The vendor will set them up, and they've just been... more»

How has it helped my organization?

They balance a lot better than the last set that we had. The previous load balancers made some bad decisions with allocating the load, and they would basically overload one of the single nodes behind. These, from loadbalancer.org, tend to... more»

What needs improvement?

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, whereas the previous ones were. In terms of... more»

What is most valuable?

First of all it's the reliability, what you create by load balancing, because you have more endpoints. That's for our web services that we provide. This is the only feature for us, and it's important because it makes our network more reliable.

How has it helped my organization?

We can more easily set up a test environment, because you can easily configure your forms. It makes it more flexible for us to convert our test environment to a production environment, without having to change DNSs on the outside. You just... more»

What needs improvement?

We are only using the basic features, and for us it's good. We're not yet using the SSL certificate offloading because we are still using an older software version. But I already know that in the new versions they have, it's built in. That... more»

What is most valuable?

Ease of use and support. 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. The support especially helps us with quick... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has relieved the load on our team so we can focus on other aspects of the operation. When we do load balancing, the customer does not know that this particular node is down because the load balancing hides it from them. So, from a customer... more»

What needs improvement?

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, to somehow extract the data and chart it for this appliance, we could use it to present certain... more»

What is most valuable?

* Reliability * High availability

How has it helped my organization?

It means that if one of our mail-servers falls over, it's a much more seamless process. Or if we need to do maintenance on one of them, we can take it out of the Loadbalancer in a controlled fashion so that users don't notice that there's... more»

What needs improvement?

At the moment, I can't think of anything. For what we use it for, it does everything we need it to. It does it well and it doesn't have any trouble, so I can't think of anything that I would change.

What do you think of Loadbalancer.org?

Primary Use Case Load-balancing a web application server. It's a requirement for the application which we're using, which is why we bought the hardware. It does its job. We don't touch it. • Improvements to My Organization We couldn't use our line-of-business software without it. It sits in front of it and it just does its job. It's an unsung hero, I'm afraid. It just does what it does. It plods along everyday, and when it breaks, it gets fixed really quickly. • Valuable Features The SSL Layer 7 load balancing. • Room for Improvement Obviously the simple ones like price. Make it cheaper, make it faster. Other than that, it's a spot-on product. It doesn't have any issues; no wishes or wants with it at all. • Use of Solution Three to five years. • Stability Issues ...
