Advantages of Load Balancing

Resonate Central Dispatch™ is advanced server load balancing software that provides high availability and optimal performance for all web applications, ensuring a positive end-user experience, while easing management of application and server infrastructure for data center and network administrators. In traditional server load balancing, server and application availability is determined by writing physical interactions between the  server load balancing infrastructure and the applications. This approach not only limits the number of applications that can be managed, but ignores the health of the server and network infrastructure.

Resonate’s patented Resource-Based Scheduling technology allows routing decisions based on actual statistics and heuristics obtained from the server and network infrastructure. This inherent support for all applications provides higher application availability, lower costs and an improved end-user experience – in all, a more advanced server load balancer.

Central to the Resonate Active Intelligence are lightweight distributed software agents that collect detailed information such as CPU load and memory utilization. This information, together with network latency and other metrics obtained by the CD Schedulers and Central Dispatch Console, determine the most ideal path for data flow.

By employing this advanced server load balancing approach, Central Dispatch ensures dependable, predictable performance and responsiveness for ALL applications.

Central Dispatch SLB

Active Intelligence Concept of Operations

  • 1

    Client makes request to Virtual Web Server (CD Scheduler) for routing to web server(s)

  • Scheduler picks appropriate Server resources based on real-time analysis of every node

  • 3

    Web Server makes request for content to appropriate App Server, which retrieves content from Database Server

  • 4

    App Server returns content to Web Server

  • 5

    Web Server responds directly to Client, completing the transaction

CENTRAL DISPATCH BENEFITS

Support for any Application

Active Intelligence allows Central Dispatch to fit easily into any application and network environment. Ideal for complex data center environments with a diverse mix of applications.

Scalable and Cost-effective for Any Environment

Distributed architecture offers extreme system scalability, with flexibility that can be easily deployed into existing infrastructures.

Improved Availability and Reliability

Assess application availability on what matters most (e.g. server and network health), as well as application response. Achieve better performance and higher availability.

Dynamic Provisioning

Enables IT staff with the ability to dynamically bring resources on
and offline without disrupting services. It can also share resources
across multiple applications and services.

Secure

Keeps sites accessible and highly available by guarding against many forms of DoS and application attacks.
