Load balancer recommendation?

It has been several years since I've shopped around for network hardware. We're looking to add some redundancy to our hosting environment at work, and that requires a load-balancer/redirector. More to handle fail-over than load-balancing. Back in the day the Cisco Local Director was what we normally used (at GTEI) since we were a Cisco shop. I remember other names, like Top Level, but I know the market has shaken up a lot in the past few years.

What is the recommendation for a redirector these days? Note, we're looking for something off-the-shelf, operations isn't interested in a Linux/FreeBSD/Windows box with home brewed solution, etc. Something like a Local Director is what we're looking for - rack mount, router-ish box.
