  • Design Best Practices for HA in Load Balancing with Avi Networks Recorded: Mar 3 2020 49 mins
    Nathan McMahon, Solution Architect at Avi Networks, part of VMware
    Application availability is a critical function of load balancing but a pain to get it right. The reality is you don't get to test (or wish you don't have to activate) it too often. However, an HA system should deliver: faster failover with reasonable efficiency, autoscaling, session mirroring and self-healing resiliency. In this webinar, we re-introduce HA as an intertwined concept as well as some best practices - what if you can redesign HA with a modern load balancing platform?

    Here are some of the HA requirements to consider:

    - Architectural considerations for various HA options
    - Moving away from expensive Active / Standby load balancing pairs to an elastic Active / Active load balancing fabric
    - The importance to separate control plane and data plane HA- Four HA modes: legacy A/S, elastic A/A, elastic N+M, and elastic N+0
