Router Update Jan 2008

You may wonder why we never added any new router updates. Simple, because it works fine as it is! Since July 2007 we have been using this firmware in our router to handle te front-end and back-end servers load balancing the servers running this very same website. Rock solid, month after month.

On our development build we have implemented some modifications to the GUI allowing for load balancing configuration, but we have seen that it was adding too much complexity to the detriment of reliability. We felt that it was overkill to handle all the possible combinations of the load balancer configuration that are easily obtained through the configuration files, hence eventually we took a step back and realized that "if ain't broken, don't fix it".
