Link and Load Balancing
The Barracuda Link Balancer’s policy-based link-load balancing prevents traffic congestion for incoming and outgoing application traffic across diverse links.
Network congestion is a major problem and load balancing is the solution.
Preserve traffic priorities during ISP link failure with automatic failover from primary to backup links .
VPNs also keep priorities during link failover.
Mix and match fast T1 and MPLS lines with low-cost DSL and cable – from one or more ISPs – for more bandwidth at lower costs.
The ability to use lower bandwidth for certain tasks and higher for other is extremely valuable in keeping your network running at peak efficiency.
You can use applications, day and time, priority, bandwidth and contention priorities to implement effective link-level QoS.
With a wide variety of priority options you can make sure your network is sending through the most important data first.
Inbound Link Balancing
The Barracuda Link Balancer has a built-in DNS server to route inbound requests to the appropriate server through the link with the most capacity.
When you’ve got many servers it’s important to make sure the data is getting routed to the one with the most available bandwidth. This ensures traffic will arrive in a timely fashion.
For secure site-to-site connectivity the Barracuda Link Balancer provides VPNs that are load balanced across links.
VPNs maintain priorities during failover ensuring that critical services are preserved.
