3 Ways to Optimize Microsoft IIS with an Application Delivery Controller

Microsoft’s Internet Information Services (IIS) is one of the world’s most popular web servers for hosting just about anything on the web. A big part of the attraction, especially for companies that employ DevOps methodologies, is that it’s compatible with all Windows services and runs in Windows environments, which makes it easier to integrate and support business-critical apps. But IIS web servers can also put excessive strain on computing resources and slow down website response times.

4 Must-Have Features for Load Balancing Microsoft Exchange

Businesses worldwide depend on Microsoft Exchange for a variety of communications applications from email services and collaboration tools to calendars. To ensure the performance of these critical business applications, Microsoft Exchange needs to be highly available to withstand outages, prevent downtime, and protect the system during maintenance and upgrades. It also often requires geographically redundant deployments for disaster recovery and the ability to fail over to backup sites if the system falters.

To achieve high availability for your Exchange deployment, load balancing is essential. But what should you look for in a load balancer? Below we’ve highlighted the top four features your load balancer needs to keep your Exchange apps up-and-running and performing optimally.

How to Boost Revenue with a Web Accelerator

There is a familiar saying that “time is money,” and in the online realm of digital commerce it couldn’t be more true. That’s because there is a direct relationship between website performance and revenue. That is, the time it takes to load web pages has an immediate impact on a company’s turnover.

The world’s largest online companies have documented how slow website performance results in lost revenues. But this is an issue that affects businesses of all sizes with an online presence. Even highly optimized sites have room to improve. Here we explain how web performance affects the bottom line and offer tips for using web acceleration to speed up poorly performing websites.

Why your next ADC should prioritize East-West load balancing

Microservices architecture is the new black when it comes to designing software applications. Developers are abandoning monolithic application structures and adopting microservices, particularly for very large applications, because they are more flexible, highly scalable, easier to manage and can provide the agility that DevOps teams require.

But as more applications are decomposed into microservices, which all need to communicate with each other, this is putting considerable strain on traffic loads in the data center. Traditional hardware load balancers and Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) that were not designed to cope with microservices are struggling to keep up and are slowing down DevOps activities. The surge in data center traffic resulting from the rapid adoption of microservices demands a new approach to Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) that is optimized for “East-West” load balancing.
