The great growth over the last few years in the use of Web applications combined with the recent interest in cloud computing has caused IT organizations to realize that simple server load balancers can’t keep up with the emerging demands. What is needed is an application delivery controller (ADC). In addition to balancing traffic, an ADC offloads computationally intensive tasks off of a server farm. However, the ADCs that are currently available in the market differ dramatically in terms of their underlying architectures and the functions that they provide. In this fast-paced, PowerPoint-free session, leading ADC vendors will be asked questions that serve to identify the similarities and differences between their products.
