					Reasons To Invest In Innovative Load Balancers

If you have been thinking about opting in for load balancing solutions, then apart from its features and advantages
it is essential to have an in-depth understanding about the load balancing process itself and the it can be used for
web security. Simply put, load balancing the process of evenly disseminating the work amongst various computers.
The procedure has the following benefits:

            Bringing down the load on individual systems
            Bringing down the response time
            Increasing the network utilization
            Helps to enhance reliability
            Enables scaling & Improves user satisfaction

An innovative load balancers helps end users and organizations in maintaining a systematic practice of routing the
incoming and outgoing HTTP traffic to either of the various servers for managing access to websites. It also
comprises traffic scanning for malware, phishing, spyware and other unessential content. Load balancers helps to
resolve the following concerns:

            Helps in more seat addition i.e. horizontal scalability
            Helps in balancing the load of one or more local servers i.e. Server Load Balancing or SLB
            Helps in balancing the load across globally-distributed servers i.e. Global Server Load Balancing or
             GSLB
            Helps to balance across multiple security devices i.e. Firewall Load Balancing
            Fault tolerance
            High accessibility

Top notch service providers of application delivery controllers programs and solution have come up with advanced
load balancers that help the end users to leverage parallel multi-core processing to be able to cost-effectively
generate industry leading functionality upon a rich application acceleration and load balancing feature suited for
unparalleled overall ownership value. Benefits of load balancing appliances are:

            There are global and local server load balancing along with multi-unit clustering for 99.999%
             application uptime as well as data center scalability

             applications and other IP services
            There is the offloading of application and Web servers for high efficiency, capacity as well as return
             on investment
            There is integrated TCP connection multiplexing, high-speed HTTP processing, compression and
             caching for a 5X improvement in application functionality
            SSL acceleration for safeguarding data in transit, offloading compute-intensive processes from servers
             and enhancing application performance
            There are reverse-proxy infrastructure with an advanced packet-inspection firewall for securing
             applications without influencing the performance
            There are application-specific criteria and configuration guidelines for quick implementation of
             optimized configurations

Advanced load balancing appliances help to enhance the overall application performance and speeds up the
return-on-investment (ROI) for small and large scale enterprises.
