Distributing Requests across Multiple Servers

As applications become more complex, user demands keep growing, and traffic volume increases drastically, enterprise networks today need to be intelligent enough to meet the challenges without compromising the network service and performance. Server Load Balancing (SLB) is a technology that distributes high traffic sites among several servers using a network-based hardware or software-defined appliance. The servers can be on premises in a company’s own data centers, or hosted in a private cloud or public cloud.

>  Server Load Balancing & High Availability

Q-Balancer appliance sits between the clients and the server farm, distributing incoming requests across multiple servers. As the appliance has the ability to monitor servers' health, the appliance removes the faulty servers from the server pool and re-distributes traffic to the remaining active servers when a server outage is detected. When all servers work properly, the appliance effectively distributes client requests to servers for consistent and high-performing application delivery. Through the ability of server load balancing, enterprise networks reduce individual server load, prevent any application server from becoming a single point of failure, and ensure delivery, scalability, and reliability for applications.
