Subject: Re: [load balancing] F5, Foundry, Radware, Alteon (Nortel), Cisco or others ?
Thx Scott for the link to gartner which brings me more insight on the whole market. Any more research paper regarding the load balancing products or market ? Is there any journal or books regarding this subject ? I were being pointed to this list thru a books Server Load Balancing. I learn from various sources that F5 seems to be the market leader nowaday and does poccess the richest feature set, for now I just concern on the performance especially on GSLB and SSL handling.For the Cisco product, it seems that there are also a lot of user base while I saw quite some comments on some area or issues that Cisco is trying to address now which frightened me.Alteon, seems lost quite some market after meging with nortel because of lacking in new product line (just my opinion).Netscaler is still a boy in the market and gartner's comment to them is not bad, also there are some positive comments including strong technical underpinnings and being invested by sequoia capital.For other products, I really can't find much info/comments on it and don't really know much about that.
Brand Vote Highlight
F5 4 GSLB addon, feature rich
Radware 1 GSLB addon, asic, feature rich
Alteon 1 GSLB addon, asic, performance animal
Cisco 2 GSLB addon, feature rich, some problems
Foundry 0 GSLB, asic
Array 0 ?
Netscaler 1 strong technical underpinnings
Webmux 1 reasonable pricing Frank
