Have you any experience to use hardware load balancers in SAP solutions?

Dear Sirs,

Have you any experience to use hardware load balancers in SAP solutions?

Could you share your experience of using this hardware?

Advantages and disadvantages?

The matter is, I am installing a distributed PI 7.1 system ( CI+DB on Veritas cluster and 2 additional DI)

And I have to decided, what sort of load balancers to use - SAP Web dispatcher or external hardware load balancer.

SAP Web Dispatcher - Advantages and disadvantages

+ SAP standart solution

+ Clear administration for SAP admins

+ No additional cost

- ????

Best regards,

Alexey Lugovskoy

    Hello Aleksey,

    It's late answer but since no one has answered your question I want to share something.

    We used web dispatcher, F5 and Netscaler as load balancers in our SAP landscapes.

    For F5 and web dispatcher comparison you can download a document from below link.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
