Load Balancers with Advanced ADC Features

Simple Yet Powerful

Scalable yet affordable. Array load balancers come standard with advanced traffic management, acceleration and Web security. Whether deployed as physical, virtualized or virtual appliances, Array application delivery controllers provide clear value via rich, simply packaged features and benefits.

Load balancers with integrated advanced traffic management, acceleration and Web security

Load balancers – also known as application delivery controllers, application front ends or integrated traffic management appliances – improve availability, scalability, performance and security for Web, cloud and mobile applications. Advanced load balancers, such as the Array’s APV Series, also provide customizable control over application traffic and robust monitoring and reporting capabilities for the purpose of application optimization.

Array’s AppVelocity and AppVelocity-S are simple yet powerful, all-inclusive advanced load balancer feature sets available for physical, virtual and virtualized Array appliances. Identical in every other respect, AppVelocity-S includes hardware SSL and is intended for environments that require a high degree of secure transaction processing. AppVelocity is available on all APV Series physical appliances or as a vAPV virtual appliance; AppVelocity-S is available on all APV Series physical appliances and is also supported on Array’s AVX Series virtualized appliances.
