We want to get a second data circuit from a different ISP provider for backup purposes in the event our main circuit goes down. We recently experienced an outage that took 2 days to resolve. Since we have to pay for the second circuit we might as well use it. I want to get some type of load balancing appliance that would allow us to this. I had one vendor pitching a layer 2 device made by Elfiq. I have never heard of them. I was hoping someone could sugggest something.

When you say "data circuit" from a "different ISP" - are you talking about Internet - an Internet connection?

What type of router do you have?  What type of Internet connection do you have now?

We have two Cisco routers with BGP from two large Internet Providers.  BGP takes care of our load balancing across our Internet circuits.
