How application delivery controllers work?
The developers who are building business applications need an IT environment that allows them to work quickly and with full security. So we need to have web servers that are always available and protected. In today’s agile world, organizations are facing challenges in delivering critical applications to users. Companies are adopting appropriate networking technologies to gain efficiency. The evolution of modern applications is due to a higher dependency on cloud and mobile technologies. When they have to deliver a variety of functions across networks. They also need applications that are high in performance to deliver solutions. The IT team can’t wait to set up and configure load balancers and Application Delivery Controllers ( ADCs) for them. They need to have solutions for their needs.
The following techniques are mostly used by Application delivery controllers (ADCs) to enhance application performance:
- Load balancing: It refers to distributing incoming requests across a group of servers. The algorithms consider factors such as server capacity, type of content requested, fields in the HTTP header, the client location, etc. to improve performance.
- Caching: It stores the content locally on ADC instead of fetching it from the backend servers every time a client requests it. It increases the speed of delivery and reduces server loads.
- Offloading SSL processing: It replaces the backend servers at the SSL endpoint for connections with the client. It performs the decryption of requests and encryption to work for servers to deliver content by freeing up servers for other tasks.
