F5 Webcasts

Load Balancers can be rather complex, the guidance can be confusing, and how vendors interpret that guidance can be interesting.

So image my joy when I discovered that F5 have a bunch of webcast based walkthroughs that make life easier for the average guy having to configure an F5 load balancer as part of implementing Exchange.

I know that other products exist that need load balancing, but for the sake of this post  I’ll imagine that Exchange is the only application needing load balancing.

With my jaundiced view of the load balancing world in mind that would mean that the following links become really interesting:

The good news is that there’s more than just Exchange guidance, SharePoint and other scary applications feature as well. If only everyone could embrace Exchange ……..

On a parting note the last webcast on SNAT considerations are a biggie if you’re deploying Blackberry and Exchange 2010 in behind a F5.
