Pros: Based on Linux platform, it is robust and secure. And provide unlimited customization levels. You can actually request something to suit your organizational needs. You can run multiple services not limited to operating system e.g. you can run to loadbalance Windows Server Farm and Web applications simultaneously. you can introduce new servers in existing setup and take out old without any downtime

Cons: Web UI to configure is bit complex , However the support is excellent and provide service promptly. Agent less there is not much information you can what going on target services

Overall: We are running dual server farm for end user computing and financial application. We were using 2x LoadBalancer as most of our users connect to windows servers from linux platform. Initially we started using this for Windows Terminal Servers and then we tweaked it bit further added other services available locally. Since it works on TCP services we were able to add multiple services in single platform. The comparing product was 10 times more expensive and providing very similar features. We found loadbalancer quite effective in terms of both cost and functionality.

We use this solution to blance the connection load to our customer website on our six web servers.

Pros: Loabalancer.org solutions are esay to setup and administrate. They can balance differents protocols with the same applicance. We really like the Direct Routing method to get a really good reponse time for our custumors even if this method requier some adjustements on web servers to work properly.

Cons: In the past i have got a issue with the serial cable that use for making a cluster work. I think they can improve this part to automaticaly setup the cluster when a specific cable is connected on two appliance for exemple.

Overall: it's easy to setup and use, it's really nice to communicate with their custumers service who is quick and qualified.

Pros: very good, stable, and understandable product. I cant pinpoint anything for the use it is running on, to the contrary I can feel system is overall a winner. Support is very good, and know their stuff, and that's what puts everything together.

Cons: well, nothing much really - we forget that its actually there, the only problem is the boss thinks you are not working hard enough...

Overall: full load balancing for exchange, without the pricetag of much more expensive hardware. No "expiring" hardware (As we got the vm) and it was even supported in hyper-v environment...

Pros: Runs on VMWare. Easy to configure. SSL offloading works great. Layer 4 and Layer 7 load balancing both work very well. We didn't have success with session stickiness with a couple of the other load balancers we tested. Was one of the main factors we chose the product. Support has been very good. Have not had a single failure of the software in over 4 years.

Cons: NIC assignment on the VM host machine is not very clear. The last update we pushed broke all of our configs and we had to recreate manually.

Very easy to deploy and manage on production servers, excellent performance on a VM

Pros: The layer 4 configuration is as good as a hardware LB if not better, the deployment on our network , the dashboards for monitoring the traffic, load and performance is very satisfactory, management and maintenance is relatively easy and there have been hardly any support requirement sought from us, towards trouble shooting any issues. Excellent to deploy on a production environment in a virtualised platform, especially on a layer 4 configuration.

Cons: SSL certificate implementation as part of the SLB needs to be incorporated or improved
Traffic analysis to be made in better readable form and the dashboard especially for traffic management could be improved

Pros: The HA ability allows you to make changes and reboots without affecting your environment. Updates to existing infrastructure assets is easy and SSL requests are a breeze

Cons: My only Fault is that the updating of the Loadbalancer.org virtual device is not simplistic like other virtual or physical devices. An update can take out the services to a long time. Now they may have fixed this but this is why I am hesitant to upgrade our revisions

Overall: Load balancing and SSL Termination and visibility of concurrent connection in

Pros: Amazing product with stability and absolutely less maintenance and effective one time setup . Glad to know there are providing Cloud based Load balancers as well. Without doubt would propose Cloud based load balancers for my customers.

Cons: Improvements like multiple scheduling algorithms for distributing client load, All hosts in a cluster must be located in the same subnet, Cannot provide reverse proxy services functionality that is required for applications etc..

Pros: Product is easy to configure and easy to manage. Product is very stable for production environment. Administrator guide and installation manual are very easy to understand and Administrator can easily manage all the information and logs.

Cons: GUI End user interface should be more informational. Monitoring users should work in real time. Restarting certain services should not loose users information.

Overall: Daily Reports. Bandwidth Usage. Administrator Guide. Easy to use and easy to deploy

Pros: Easy to understand and implement loadbalancing features without reading the manual. Their deployment guide is also useful and you can still reach out to the support team should you require have an application you need help to deploy.

Cons: Despite using this product for many years, it is difficult to find something glaring. In fact, we have purchased more and even upgraded the initial pair we deployed.

Overall: No training required, straightforward and easy to deploy

Pros: The load balancers are running very stable, provide a good performance and after a while you do not even know you are using them because they are inconspicuous.

Cons: There is nothing to complain about, no performance or stability issues, no need to reboot. Rare software updates because there isn't much you can make better when the product is perfect. :-)

Overall: They simply do what they were bought for.

Loadbalancer.org is a very solid solution that handles our complex data center needs.

Cons: Upgrades do not always go smooth, but the support staff is always great to resolve the problems in a quick timeframe.

Overall: It allows easier administration of SSL via SSL offloading as well as better resource utilization.

This is a solid and well executed load balancer. It saved us a ton of time and money.

Pros: The ease of use and implementation are huge pluses with this software. It provides everything that 90% of companies would use and does it very well. The price allowed us to get 2 pairs of LBs instead of just the 1 pair we were looking at from the competition.

Cons: The interface is a bit clunky and the reporting/monitoring is less than robust. Some of the graphs are a little difficult to decipher as to the roll up of data and what it is reporting.

Overall: We were able to replace our previous LBs and add speed/features for a nominal price.

Pros: Cost effective - we had a small number servers that needed to be load balanced. Great support. Purchased the virtual machine model which made setup very easy.

Cons: We had one minor issue shortly after implementing that was resolved with a software update. I would like the software upgrade process to be more wizard point and click oriented.

Pros: Haproxy on command line is difficult to manage but it became much easy due to graphical interface.
Here there is no such dependency that unix guys only can manage it. It's easy tool from configuration perspective.

Cons: Whatever the commands we need to execute can be executed on graphical interface. This helps everyone to get required information such as netstat output.

Does exactly what it needs to do without being overly complicated.

Pros: I've used loadbalancer.org products both in the hardware appliance and software offerings and I am consistently pleased with the quality offering. Excellent featureset and a lot easier to set up than some other offerings.

Cons: Nothing really, I am happy with the solution. Cost perhaps could be better for software only solutions but all in all it's still very competitive.

Overall: Excellent loadbalancing functionality.

Pros: What I like about the loadbalancer is its ease of use with balancing our content filter traffic to the two content filter appliances that we currently have.

Cons: It took sometime to setup the load balancer to work with our content filters but once it was finished, it has worked very well ever since.
