Best practice for implementing f5's on internal and external vlans
I am looking for best practices as well as use cases to use 1 pair of f5's to load balance both external (dmz) and internal traffic. Currently I have 2 pairs, one for the dmz and one for internal traffic - both are on version 9.3.1 and upgrading has proven extremely difficult as there are many groups using them. What I have been contemplating is purchasing two 8900's for failover but using them to load balance traffic both on the dmz, and for internal traffic coming from the dmz machines. Is this best practice? Is there any downside to this? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
