Overall Satisfaction with F5 BIG-IP

We utilized the F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager and Global Traffic Manager modules. It was utilized for the entire organization. It allowed us to maintain maximum uptime by intelligently balancing traffic between multiple web servers, distribute load across multiple data circuits both locally and in remote datacenters, as well as manage our disaster recovery failover with minimal intervention required from the team.

F5 BIG-IP would be well suited in situations where high availability with intelligent load balancing is critical and the budget allows for such a solution, being that it is not an inexpensive product.

It would be less appropriate in situations where only basic, round robin type load balancing would be the only requirement.
