  • How to buy the best application delivery controller for your firm

    An application delivery controller (ADC) sits between you and the web server farm to manage the traffic between you and any number of back-end servers. In other words, app delivery controllers control the delivery of the web application to you -- hence the name.

    Older ADCs required custom ASICs, which raised costs, but processing power has advanced so that ADCs with sophisticated functionality can be implemented in software and run on cost-effective general-purpose processors. This allows today's app delivery controllers to be implemented not only as standalone hardware devices but quite effectively as virtual appliances as well or as a hosted service. In other words, more companies than ever can afford an ADC.

    This Buyer's Guide explains key developments in app delivery controller technology and reviews the features ADCs can have. It serves as a manual for networking professionals and others involved in acquiring an app delivery controller for their particular company.

  • Why application delivery platforms remain a vital technology

    Cloud-based or on-premises application delivery platforms are growing in importance to enterprises. Once called 'load balancers,' the more common terms are 'application delivery controllers,' or ADC, or even 'application delivery platforms,' or ADP. Whatever they are called, they are needed to ensure high performance of enterprise app delivery.

    As network technologies and demands have evolved, the trusty ADC or ADP has changed along with it. They still manage the flow of traffic between enterprise systems and users and perform myriad other functions, but the amount of traffic and the number of users they support has soared. The latest ADPs scale and perform advanced functions. This handbook examines how the newest technology in this category delivers applications to any user on any device, and how they work in conjunction with other systems and processes, including software-defined networking, or SDN.
