All I want for Christmas is a load balancer that does not suck. It should do the following:
- Terminate and offload SSL sessions at a rate of no less than 20,000/sec
- Provide in-memory content caching
- Support web logging, Apache-style (and despite what some hardware vendors thing, web logging is really important)
- Have some method of scaling capacity (particularly at the SSL layer)
I know this is a lot to ask for but I’ve been good this past year.
