One question we’re often asked at Krypsys is what’s the difference between traditional load balancers and Application Delivery Controllers? Well, both products serve a similar purpose – to direct traffic to different servers based on availability and load. However, the best ADCs, like the one we recommend from Barracuda, go further; in fact they offer a number of competitive and cost-effective advantages over regular load balancers. Application Deliver Controllers are ideal for optimising application performance and availability. You could say that they are the heart and soul of modern day data centres.
