At my company we have a device we call a web-switch. It basically load
balances and knows to stop sending traffic to servers when they go down.
We currently looking to get a new device like this. Somebody here is
recommending a product called BigIP by F5. Or one of Ciscos CSS devices.
I'm just curious as to the feasibility (in your guys' opinions) of setting
up a Linux box (or cluster) to do this kind of stuff.
Would you just go with a dedicated device or set your own up with a Linux
I've always been one to throw Linux solutions around as if it was some
kind of silver bullet, but I don't want to get stuck in that mind set.
Microsoft is not the answer.
Microsoft is the question.
NO (or Linux) is the answer.
