A complete “straw man” argument made on Radware’s blog. I understand they have to promote and sell their product, but it should be able to (and can) stand on it’s own merits. He is talking about ELB and it’s purported failures, but there are plenty of ELB alternatives (like HAProxy), not to mention multiple strategies for avoiding a single point of failure at the LB.

we should keep educating end users on the difference between managed LB services (ELB, CLB…. many more) and ADC instances running in the cloud. if you have more details about strategies in building HA i’ll be happy to learn, and refer to these as well.
