What is key difference between LTM and GTM?
The biggest difference between the GTM and LTM is traffic doesn’t actually flow through the GTM to your servers. The GTM is an intelligent name resolver, intelligently resolving names to IP addresses.
Why We Need F5 load balancer?
F5 load balancers are very important devices for distributing and balancing application and network traffic across servers. That is done in order to increase system capacity, with a fast and seamless delivery of packets.
