We're looking here at moving away from an existing Nortel Alteon load
balancer (content switch, whatever you want to call it) implementation
serving various web systems and towards a larger-scale enterprise scale
system and I was curious as to experiences and recommendations from
other large universities.
At the present time, we're looking at F5 and Juniper, and wanted to hear
from others utilizing these products for enterprise load balancing.
Information on any problems, caveats, recommendations, suggestions and
advice would be greatly appreciated, as well as success with product
lines other than those two. Information as to the sizing of your
current implementation would be valuable.
Feedback as to support costs and FTEs associated with this service on
your campus would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
