Fast, reliable, and secure access to applications and Web services are essential to the ongoing success of enterprises across every sector. No business today can afford data center downtime, which can cost $181,700 per hour on average.
Complex legacy load balancing solutions can’t keep up with today’s requirements for swift application delivery and scalable security. The solution is deployment of next-generation application delivery controllers (ADCs), which can dramatically scale data center resources, speed up server response times, and halt attacks.
But before you make a significant move to update your infrastructure, take some time to fully evaluate your ADC deployment choices so that you make the right decisions. Read the eBook, 10 Critical Requirements for Optimizing Application Delivery.
Among the capabilities examined are:
• Ensuring server availability on a local and global scale
• Accelerating content delivery to make applications run as intended
• Protecting resources against attacks aimed at web, application and DNS servers
• Supporting data center transformations involving SDN and cloud
