F5 Networks BIG-IP Family

Awesome Application Load balancer

This product is very nice and has lots of features that work very well. Working with the vendor is easy.

Difficult to get vendor to support Customer requirements

Professional Services not helpful. Approach is "tell us your requirements", despite my business requirement which is "you are a Load Balancing and A.D. industry leader, guide us on what a Managed Service provider should provide for LB and AD services". Still didn't change. Also speak in their F5 version and product language, assumes we speak the same language (we don't).

F5 - Application Load Balancing - Fun and Pain

While their response to service is good, they have been charging us for issues that are seemingly related to their load balancing appliance.

Best Technology you can get

F5 is truly dedicated to their customers. Their base of internal engineers and sales engineers are some of the best network engineers I"ve ever worked with. Beyond just understanding network technologies they understand security, applications and DNS.

F5-Taking Customer Facing Applications to the Lext Level.

The technology is solid and proven. The Vendor support and post sales support is excellent. The User Community forum is outstanding. When it is too expensive or time consuming for the application teams to modify, or correct their code in response to changing buisines/Security needs, the iRules are the key to this soluton.

Good product, but not for robot management.

Generally works well. Robot management technology of the security package is hugely ineffective.

Use professional services for initial implementation, support may be lacking.

F5 is a great company with amazing talented people and cutting edge innovation. Were F5 fails is in the post sales support. The support is very inconsistent.
