Load Balancing

5 Reasons to Use a Software Load Balancer

Today, computer and internet usage are at an all-time high, and reliable performance is demanded and critical for businesses of all sizes. To increase the speed of system loading, decrease downtime, and eliminate single points of failure, load balancing is the answer.

Using an ADC to Load Balance Remote Desktop (RDP) Connections

More and more organizations are moving towards the widespread use of remote desktop (RDP) connections across their enterprise, and with good reason. RDP reduces the cost of application licenses and hardware, improves resource availability to roaming users and offers enhanced data security, especially in environments where BYOD is in place.

However, problems can start to occur when an organization starts to outgrow its existing RDP infrastructure through expansion or simply giving more users access to remote desktop functions. As RDP servers start to hit capacity, issues such as dropped or refused connections can have a significant impact on productivity.

An effective solution to this problem is to route all RDP functions through a load-balanced server farm using an application delivery controller (ADC). Application delivery controllers have gained traction over the years, largely due to their ability to improve the resiliency, security and performance of web-delivered applications.
