Built to Scale
Many applications are developed today in the hopes that they will one day become \"Superstars\" like Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace. But they aren't necessarily developed with the capacity and performance expectations that are required of superstars. Twitter, for example, is in the midst of a nearly complete architectural renovation due to its inability to scale. In the meantime, users are frustrated by the constant outages and instability of the popular web 2.0 site. Incorporating an Application Delivery Controller (ADC) into the architecture of a web application provides the ability to scale seamlessly without rewriting the application or suffering outages.
