Load Balancing: Radware NLB - 26.May2010 2:24:44 PM

As soon as you create more than one CAS server role (as in the case of  my client's HA requirement) your requirement is to have fault tolerance in this role, so a load balancer must be used.  (When you collocate the CAS/Hub Transport/Mailbox roles in a DAG, the Microsoft Cluster Services will deny the use of Windows Network Load Balancing (WNLB) so this makes the use of this technology impossible.)

Question:  has anyone had experience of the following nlb and whether they would be suitable or not for Exchange 2010 NLB:

RADWARE LinkProof - Entry Level - 50M

Having issues finding any technical data related to Exchange.

TIA

Doing manual DNS update for the CAS array also isn't as bad, fact that it is , valid poor man method..

I was looking at the time for Radware specific experiences.  Turns out the Radware Linkproof 50m is end of life, however the Radwre Linkproof 100M is supported for Exchange 2010 according to their tech guy.

Anyways  my client has decided to go ahead with Citrix Netscalers so it's all theoretically good.

cheers
