Organizations worldwide are distributing their critical-business applications across multiple geographically dispersed sites in order to increase performance, availability and resiliency of these important business assets. However, network administrators are faced with a new set of global traffic management challenges involving efficient delivery of these applications, as well as management of the global server load balancing infrastructure.
Global Dispatch is an intelligent, agent-based service-level global server load balancing solution that provides high availability and optimum performance for geographically distributed business applications. Global Dispatch eases management of globally distributed traffic to ensure it is always directed to the most available, responsive sites, while its powerful management tools gather critical site metrics that help in the decision making process. A native software solution that layers onto existing infrastructure, including existing DNS and local server load balancing solutions, Global Dispatch enables companies to quickly and easily deploy a redundant site, and ultimately deliver a global traffic management solution that delivers a great end-user experience.
Global Dispatch enhances the user experience by employing it’s global server load balancing routines to route each user to the data center with the content most relevant to their needs. For example, users can be directed to the data center closest to their location to minimize WAN costs.
