You’ve heard many times that applications have evolved, security perimeters have dissolved, distributed architectures and multi-cloud deployments are the way to go. What about load balancing – the key enabler for application availability, performance, and responsiveness regardless of the underlying infrastructure? Look no further especially if you’re already invested in VMware.
With a software-defined architecture, VMware NSX Advanced Load Balancer provides multi-cloud load balancing, intelligent web application firewall, application analytics and container ingress services from the data center to the cloud.
Provide a public cloud like elasticity and ease of management to load balancing with on-demand autoscaling based on traffic demand.
Deploy consistent load balancing policies across on-prem data centers, public clouds, and hybrid clouds like VMware Cloud in AWS, Microsoft Azure VMware Solution, and Google Cloud VMware Engine.
Accelerate application delivery through decision automation with 100% REST APIs. Simplify monitoring and troubleshooting with closed-loop analytics – consumed in SaaS.
