Cloud Balancing: The Evolution of Global Server Load Balancing
While cloud balancing sounds like a futuristic concept, it is actually based on proven, well-understood global application delivery technology. Today, large organizations already use global application delivery to enhance application performance, ensure availability, and control the costs associated with application delivery. Cloud balancing provides the means by which organizations with smaller budgets and/or IT staff can also enjoy the myriad benefits of global application delivery. In its most basic form, cloud balancing provides an organization with the ability to distribute application requests across any number of application deployments located in data centers and through cloud-computing providers.
