The following are specific Load Balancing technologies with links to additional technical articles.
A Server Load Balancer is a hardware or virtual software appliance that distributes the application workload across an array of servers, ensuring application availability, elastic scale-out of server resources and supports health management of back-end server and application systems.
Load balancing an array of Security Firewall systems to provide the ability to scale complex network devices and guarantee non-stop operation.
While having a solid firewall infrastructure is a cornerstone of network security, best-of-breed solutions cannot be optimized without adequate Firewall Load Balancing. A highly available firewall is crucial in protecting the network and ensuring business continuity. Network architectures include load balancing solution that guarantees high availability for their firewall defenses and can easily scale out.
DNS severs in large infrastructures or mission critical infrastructures general deploy DNS services on a cluster of DNS servers. In general, this cluster of DNS Servers are behind a Server Load Balancing system. This architecture overcomes the shortcomings in the standard DNS failover mechanism and greatly increase performance.
Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB) is a technology which directs network traffic to a group of data centers in various geographical locations. Each data center provides similar application services, and client traffic is directed to the optimal site with the best performance for each client. GSLB monitors the health and responsiveness of each site, and like Server Load Balancing, directs traffic to the site with the best response times.
Application Delivery Controllers are network servers providing application reliability, acceleration and application server services. Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) include server load balancing with additional technologies including SSL Offloading, Security Firewall Services, Application Firewall Systems, DDoS protection, Service Chaining and others.
The Thunder Series advanced server load balancing and flexible health monitoring capabilities provide application availability and reliability.
The core of A10’s Application Delivery (ADC) platform covers a wide range of options for load balancing methods, health checks, ensuring application availability with full-proxy L4-7 load balancing leveraging agile traffic control, customizable service health checks and aFleX® scripting.
