i would like to ask if CSS 11501 (software 8.20) is still the replacement hardware for local director 417?  currently we use this local director to load balance http and https traffic using a flat network implementation meaning virtual IP is in the same netwoork as the physical server.  will CSS 11501 can support this implementation?

Current Local Director setup example

web server virtual IP

real server ip 1

real server ip 2

local director is well before my time, so I can't comment on those and their official replacement.

I'd say you're better off going straight to ACE modules or appliances.

They're the latest generation of Cisco's load balancers.

We're very happy w/ our ACE-20 modules.
