  • Rethink Load Balancing: 7 Considerations Before Your Next Refresh Recorded: Oct 13 2017 44 mins
    Ashish Shah
    Applications in your data center, and your IT operations, demand agile, cost-effective load balancing solutions. Traditional ADC (application delivery controller) vendors such as F5 Networks or Citrix NetScaler have done little to address the needs of modern applications and cloud-native use cases. Instead, they force you down the path of expensive and inflexible hardware refreshes without addressing the fundamental challenges of elasticity, automation, hybrid-cloud use, and cost.

    Learn how Avi Networks delivers flexible application services beyond load balancing, including:

    • Application analytics and visibility
    • Predictive autoscaling
    • Automation in private data centers or the public cloud.
