WebMux Good Business Sense


The Application Delivery Load Balancer Market – Supercharge Your Network to Supercharge Your Bottom Line



Your company’s network is indispensible, whether it serves internal operations or external customers and prospects.  Everyone’s livelihood depends on a reliable and secured network, so could it make good business sense to change your network?

To decide, it is vital to ask yourself if your network always perform at its full potential even during peak traffic times, providing maximum service and availability for both your organization and your customers.  If not, the hidden costs are enormous. Employees may take longer to do their work. Existing and potential customers may lose patience and move to your competitors. These hidden cost dangers are easy to overlook, but could be dramatically reduced by a wise network change.

One high payoff network change is to invest in a network server load balancer commonly known as an Application Delivery Controlller (ADC).  A load balancer/ADC will control such costs by securely delivering and reliably directing local data traffic for TCP or UPD applications and
services to and from your internal network of servers.  As AVANU says, “It is all about the user experience on your network and keeping everyone connected.”

There are many choices in load balancers/ADCs. How do you pick one wisely, so its cost doesn’t eat up these saving? For any load balancer/ADC you may consider, ask yourself questions such as these:

• What is its out-the-door price?
• Do I need certification and training to install it myself?
• Must I hire certified personnel to do the configuration and installation? How much does this cost in time and money?
• Is it easy to maintain without having certified or trained personnel?
• Does the initial price include product configuration?
• Will the product continue to meet my future requirements as my network evolves without paying extra for “add- on” features?
• How much does the manufacturer charge for new product features?
• How much does annual support and product registration cost?
• Are there annual royalty fees?

Some considerations are harder to quantify in monetary terms:

• How good is its quality of service, both before and after purchase?
• How reliable is it?
• How long has it been on the market?

What about products with multiple functions that integrate load balancing with other services?

• Are there hidden unnecessary costs for the load balancer/ADC configuration?
• How fast can load balancing function be up and running in the network?
• Do all product functions provide optimal performance for the network?
• If one function of such a product fails, does it become a single point of failure for all its functions?
• Will you pay more for the annual service and support because of a product’s multiple functions?
