Top Five Tips to Get Your Load Balancers Ready for Black Friday and Cyber Monday

The annual holiday shopping season starting with Black Friday is the litmus test for application availability and performance for online businesses. You want to ensure that end users have the best online experience and that your business does not suffer from unexpected application outages or performance issues. These disruptions are costly both due to lost revenue and reduced customer satisfaction. With the spotlight on shopping experiences and customers and critics using social media to share updates, high profile outages can also adversely affect the reputation of the business. For network administrators and architects this means preparing their networks and load balancers to handle demand spikes and the ability to react quickly to unexpected issues.

Many IT administrators and network architects find that despite their best laid plans, things can go wrong and performance issues can bog down applications.

Learn about the top ways to make sure that your application services are ready to serve your business for the busiest time of the year.

  • State of Load Balancing 2020 Recorded: Jun 30 2020 62 mins
    Nathan McMahon, Solution Architect at Avi Networks, part of VMware
    2019 was an eventful year for load balancing. Avi Networks was acquired by VMware, who entered the application delivery controller (ADC) market with a software load balancer, web application firewall and container ingress solution. NGINX was acquired by F5 Networks, hoping to tap into the developer communities. We continue to see the rise of multi-cloud and microservices as the leading drivers behind changes in modern load balancing solutions.

    In this webinar, we explore three technology areas:

    1. A new perspective on “service chain” – how it helps integrate adjacent technologies with APIs to form a self-service portal
    2. Implications of HTTP3 on the future – why it is interesting to the load balancing industry in particular
    3. An early prediction on DNS over HTTPS (DoH) – why it can enhance the security, scale and resiliency of the internet

  • Getting the Most Out of Windows Virtual Desktop with VMware Horizon Cloud on Mic Recorded: Apr 28 2020 40 mins
    Gabe Knuth, EUC Product Marketing, VMware
    Windows Virtual Desktop has been all the rage, and for good reason–it’s Microsoft’s endorsement of virtual desktops running in the public cloud. Many companies are interested in moving but realize that for various reasons they can’t move their desktops overnight or that workloads are better placed in other locations. Fortunately, VMware Horizon Cloud supports the features of Windows Virtual Desktop and is a key platform of the VMware Horizon Service, which lets admins deploy desktops to any supported platform (on-premises, VMC on AWS, or Microsoft Azure) and manage them from a single pane of glass.

    In this session, you’ll learn about how VMware Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure supercharges the features of Windows Virtual Desktop, and how it can be a key piece in your hybrid desktop virtualization environment to support work from home and business continuity objectives, among other use cases.
  • Zero Touch Application Services Recorded: Apr 22 2020 26 mins
    Nathan McMahon, Solutions Architect, Avi Networks
