Client & Case Study

Peak Hosting

Client case study description

Peak Hosting's network is comprised of core routing from Cisco, 10 Gb distribution and top of rack switching from Brocade and firewalling from Juniper. For load balancing hundreds of servers, Peak Hosting was using Citrix NetScaler appliances. However, with Peak Hosting's constantly increasing traffic load and customer management requirements, the NetScaler solution was running out of capacity and couldn't provide the individual secure access customers demanded. While researching higher performance solutions, Peak also was on the lookout for any recent innovation that load balancers and Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) could offer to improve the customer experience and stream-line internal operations, reducing their overall total cost of ownership.
