I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What models of the F5 do you recommend?

Load balancers shouldn't care what kind of server you put behind them. F5 are great, but Kemp Technologies has better penetration in the small to mid market, because they cost less and are relatively simple to operate. We use the virtual ones, first stand alone and now in HA pair. You buy ones that match your throughput and session count requirements.

I recommend the ones sized for your environment. Here is a link to their sizing guides.

I would generally recommend virtual appliances, but maybe you have need for physical. I have no idea what your environment is like.
