Cisco ACE vs. F5
Posted on 2009-04-01
Our company is in the process of looking at and want to buy a load balancer for our network to run various things. Some of the main things that it will be used for is our Intranet, our External Web Servers, and some applications. I've talked with our Cisco rep about some of it and they recommend the ACE. One thing I liked about the ACE was the virtual machines, so I can run one load balancer and I can use it in our DMZ and on the Inside network. They said that the F5 can't do that.
What are your experiences using either one of the products? Any pro's or con's that you have encountered using either one of this would help alot. I'm trying to narrow it down so Friday we can look at purchasing one.
