HostingB2B is an enterprise hosting provider, which offers high end solutions for Gaming and Betting companies worldwide.
As well as that, focuses on its highly trained and expert staff, with both hosting solutions and Managed Services.
Our philosophy is to invest in our people with constant training and labs on every interesting open-source project in order to be able to contribute to our community.
Throughout these 12 years of experience in large enterprise networks and infrastructure, I have come to the conclusion that spending thousands on Licence fees will not improve further productivity or uptime as a matter of fact, the only outcome is that it will put the whole IT Budget in criticism from the Management whenever there is a cut off.

It will provide us with a fully alternatively customisable load balancing solution, especially adding multiple nodes for each service.
Simple first row defense against DDOS attacks and with protection against TCP Syn flood attacks and slowloris attacks.
Enabling SSL offloading reducing traffic on the webservers and in the rest of the infrastructure.
Create ACL(Access control List) for each subdomain or specific path – URL with diverting traffic to specific loadbalancer group of servers.

Summarizing, Despite all of this information, lack of expertise in these open-source systems can be very dangerous, so i suggest that you follow this simple procedure:
Start spending time reading and building your own lab for all these systems
Train your team so that they are capable of handling this type of infrastructure.
