Moving away from "load balancing" to application delivery
At my company, we purchased our LTMs to simply do load balancing. But since I took the F5 class, and reading here, it's obvious that we are barely using the features that these LTMs come up. The problem I have now, is in convincing our application team that we need to change our approach.
Currently, I'm being told that users aren't complaining about performance, and therefore we probably don't need to change anything. Can someone please point me to an article or help explain why it's important to start doing stuff at Layer 7 (even though "users aren't complaining)?
Thanks so much!
