F5 Load Balancer

F5 Load Balancer

Let us take the example of online shopping. Have you shopped for your favorite products online, especially during the great online shopping bonanza time? Just like you, there will be millions of people accessing the same website to buy their favorite products right? Ever wondered how these websites cater to each of their customers efficiently, without a delay of even a fraction of a second?

This is exactly where Local Traffic Managers come in. The Local Traffic Manager (LTM) smartly manages network traffic in such a way that applications are always fast, available, and secure.

Load Balancing distributes network traffic to online servers that fulfil requests in minimum time. This improve speed and efficiency of all servers in a network. This also ensures that all servers have equivalent workload for nonstop and timely services.
