Celestix EdgeNexus Load Balancer

While Edgenexus and f5 big IP have comparable features, the implementation and design are very different.
However, these are the 3 main differences:

Usability - Its easy to use!

  • It really is very 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.

Future proofing - ADP platform

  • Nobody can predict the future, and 2020 has taught us to expect the unexpected.
  • Our f5 Competitors 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?


  • 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.
  • Our f5 Competitors 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.
