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

2018-04-11

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.

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

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

2018-04-16

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

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.

We've given the user interface a small refresh (simplifying the modify virtual servers and SSL Termination sections). - Much more to come in v9.
But we've always had an API - Have you tried contacting support to discuss your requirements?

Very fast and great at what it does

2019-02-04

For a nominal price, we were able to put a set of load balancers in front of our web servers and provide a level of reliability that we did not have before.

Pros

This was the easiest to configure set of load-balancers that I have used. It took us less than an hour to have 2 virtual LB's in an HA cluster.

Cons

The interface is basic and could really use some more reporting options.

Hi Sean.

I would like to apologize for the issues you had when deploying our solution, specifically with NIC assignment.

I passed your feedback onto our developers to look at ways of improving the NIC assignment in a future release.

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

2018-04-17

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

Pros

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

I think they can improve this part to automaticaly setup the cluster when a specific cable is connected on two appliance for exemple.

I enjoyed working on loadbalancer.org

2018-04-16

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.

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.

We utilize our load balancer to balance the load of our internet traffic. It has been great.

2018-04-17

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.

Load balancing and SSL Termination and visibility of concurrent connection in

Pros

Updates to existing infrastructure assets is easy and SSL requests are a breeze

Cons

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

Response from Loadbalancer.org


Srikanth, Thanks very much for your kind review. We often get some confusion with how we describe the deployment options for multiple subnets. Rest assured our products definitely support all deployment methods including reverse proxy and the backend servers can be on any routable network. Please don't hesitate to contact support to start a conversation about the available options - including our server-based adaptive feedback agent.
Once again thanks very much for your review.
