Cisco ACE product can do load balancing based on links as well. Baracuda call it a link balancer. its just a marking thing as far as im concerned. 

sorry i meant 'marketing' thing...

Hi,

I have found this product. Thanks Siddigirf.

Cisco ACE 4710 Application Control Engine.

Is there a stand alone product? But 4710 is a product family of 6500 switches and 7600 serie routers.

Rgds.

Hi guys,

Cisco's ACE products (now end of life) to my knowledge balancer servers like a Citrix Netscaler if you will.  A link balancer will do the same idea but on ISPs.  Check out what I mean here: http://www.elfiq.com/otherproducts.

You also get a lot more for your project with Elfiq, namely it has the fail-to-wire capability so it's not a point of failure, which is important because you're looking at business continuity if you don't deploy in H/A.
