Load balancing is the process of distributing tasks across network resources, with the aim of making their overall processing more efficient. UNC-Chapel Hill uses load balancing technology provided by F5, Inc. The University’s current F5 infrastructure has a storage resource constraint that makes patching challenging, and it is running at capacity, which limits our ability to take on new F5 projects.

This project will form a working committee to analyze the current state of the University’s F5 load balancing infrastructure and make recommendations for a path forward.
