    Moving nice after market $55.5

    >There are generally two approaches to
    load-balancing: network-based, and host-based. Host-based systems
    require
    software to be installed on each server throughout the
    network. Radware Ltd. (NASDAQ:RDWR - news) and
    two
    privately held firms, BrightTiger and Resonate, are among
    the providers of host-based systems.

    But this
    category of software must be installed on each server
    throughout the network. For large companies that may
    run
    hundreds of servers, the burden of maintaining such a
    system can be onerous, especially in terms of time and
    IT personnel
    costs. A system upgrade can be time
    consuming, since IT staff has to visit each local server
    before the upgrade is finished.

    Network-based
    load-management systems, on the other hand, rely on hardware that
    is installed at one location, and are
    much easier
    to install and service. F5, Alteon and Foundry are
    all among the suppliers of these systems.<


    Does anybody see this as a substantial draw-back?
    Maybe this is why FFIV, FDRY and ATON are so highly
    valued. Anybody have a take on this?

    Thanks
    DZ
