Application delivery controllers provide a set of functions to optimize reliability, end-user performance, data center resource usage and security for a variety of enterprise applications.
Local Traffic Manager - Spread connections across multiple clustered servers, sending each connection to the server with the least load, thereby speeding up transactions and improving the end-user experience.
Global Traffic Manager - Automatically route connections to alternate data centers if the main data center goes offline or becomes temporarily overloaded. This makes applications more responsive for each user, and also allows enterprises to make optimal use of multiple data centres.
Application Security Manager - Protects critical applications and their data by defending against application-specific attacks that are ignored by conventional firewalls.
