New software-defined load balancers are significantly improving the way that application services are delivered and scaled, while freeing IT from repetitive tasks through intelligent automation. Application developers and lines of business are benefiting from better APIs that align with their goals for continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) and cloud-native applications.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
– How to eliminate the overprovisioning and overspending that is typical with traditional hardware-based load balancing solutions?
– How to scale not just load balancers but also applications, elastically and predictively based on real-time traffic patterns?
– How to take advantage of x86 servers, VMs, or containers to deliver application services close to individual applications?
– What are the best ways to support multi-cloud deployments and cloud-native applications?
– Ways to troubleshoot applications in minutes with the ability to record and replay traffic events, security and client data.
– How to accelerate application services for SDN environments such as Cisco ACI and private clouds such as OpenStack or for container-based microservices applications?
– The move to agile infrastructure and operations is already happening and it is now reaching critical networking components in the stack such as ADCs.
