Server Load Balancing

Server load balancing provides scalability and high availability for applications, Web sites and cloud services by monitoring the health of servers, evenly distributing loads across servers and maintaining session persistence and a seamless user experience in the event that one or more servers become overburdened or unresponsive.

 

Server load balancing for application high-availability

Load balancing is a staple solution in virtually every data center. However, today’s application delivery controllers (ADCs) represent a considerable evolution from simple server load balancing. Array’s 64-bit multi-core SpeedCore™ architecture supports massive throughput and millions of concurrent connections for scaling application availability without impacting application performance.

In addition, integrated traffic management and application acceleration functions including SSL acceleration, adaptive compression, dynamic caching, connection multiplexing, content routing and quality-of-service provide unparalleled control over application traffic and the ability to significantly improve application performance.

For organizations deploying enterprise applications including Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Exchange or SAP, or managed service applications such as eClinicalWorks, Array load balancing solutions have undergone extensive certification testing and ship with configuration templates and deployment guides that take the time and guesswork out of application delivery.
