F5 have very capable load balancers and Application Delivery controllers

So do we, and its not just because we are better value 😉

Whilst Edgenexus and F5 big IP have comparable features, the implementation and design is very different. However, these are the 3 key differences:

1. Usability - Its easy to use!

  • We focus on making our products easy to use.
  • There is no point In having features that are so complicated that they are never used in production.
  • Unlike F5, an average user can configure Edgenexus easily, quickly and intuitively without needing any formal training.

2. Future proofing - ADP platform

  • Nobody can predict the future, and 2020 has taught us to expect the unexpected.
  • We have an integrated App store that allows you to build and deploy new applications and functionality In a fast and agile way, thus providing a platform to solve the problems of today and tomorrow.
  • Would you buy a computer that can only run a single application or a mobile phone without an app store?

3. Cost

  • The market has moved on since F5's heyday. Even large enterprises are under increasing pressure to deliver better value to the business without sacrificing features or performance.

  • We are typically able to save clients 35%-65% of the price of a comparable f5 solution. This is because we are a next generation platform and don't have to support legacy telco technology.

In addition the built in application templates allow you to get up and running very quickly with many popular applications.

The integrated security tools include SSL offload, Application pre-authentication (challenges the use to login before they get to the server) and a full WAF (Web Application Firewall)

Future proof

Our unique integrated app store provided future proofing as it provides the tools kit needed to solve future problems that you may not even consider today. Who knows what’s going to happen next year let alone 3-5 years?

New leading edge applications can be downloaded and run on the ADC microservices platform seamlessly integrated with the ADC and to top it off many are free.

To further provide future proofing Licences can be even moved between environments if your needs change such as cloud.

Your cloud partner

The Edgenexus Load Balancer/ADC can support your cloud journey, whether on premise only is more suitable or you are looking for cloud migration, Hybrid cloud or multi cloud, we are here to support you.

Edgenexus takes the pain and frustration out of application delivery and security. Delivering your applications to you users in a secure, scalable and highly resilience way wherever they are located.

As application architectures evolve, advanced load balancing is becoming ever more important. If you haven’t made the move yet, here are four reasons why you should.


Operating in an HA configuration, Edgenexus intelligently directs traffic among healthy servers in order to remove single-points-of-failure, optimise utilisation and guarantee always-available applications.

“Fundamentally, Edgenexus offers us the scalability and resilience that we require. If a host, switch or site fails, we know that there will be no disruption to service delivery.” Chime Communications.”


Features such as SSL Offload, Content Caching and Compression take process-intensive tasks away from servers, freeing them to deliver faster applications and a better end-user experience.

“The ALB-X has delivered an 18 second reduction in load time which enables us to provide a faster and more user friendly experience.” Newport City Homes


Edgenexus load balancers provide a future-proof platform that allows clients to scale services or deploy new applications seamlessly.

“Our business is always growing, and as such we’re likely to add more off-site servers for greater capacity and resiliency. Edgenexus load balancers enable us to expand our requirements both quickly and cost-effectively.” Addison Lee


Easy to deploy, configure and use, with an intuitive, drag and drop GUI that means even complex traffic manipulation policies can be implemented within minutes.

“The level of administration, management and monitoring offered by Edge ADC is far superior to all the alternative solutions we considered. In fact the Edgenexus appliance is simpler to maintain and use than the F5 and Citrix NetScaler solutions used in other SDL locations.” SDL
