Recommendation on IIS Load Balancing
Posted on 2006-07-17
Currently we are trying to justify the use of a hardware network load balancer for our IIS servers. At this point we have two IIS boxes that are setup with load balancing, but they do not seem to really be load balancing, one of them is doing all of the work.
We need to justify why to spend the money on the (Coyotes load balancing system) when we can just use what is built in. We need to provide failover (clustering) as well as efficient shared use of system resources (load balancing)
Can anyone help with this, how easy is it to use IIS 6.0 to get the best of both worlds or would it be easier to justify the $ on the hardware fix?
