IT Managers are called upon to make tough business choices about how to deliver the best application performance to both internal and external customers. In a dynamic IT environment, they are constantly challenged to provide the best services, keep costs low, and continue to find the best talent for the job at hand. Enterprise reliance on the Internet to connect with customers and deliver critical business applications has delivered performance and cost benefits, but it has also increased the complexity surrounding these choices. Global load balancing (GLB), the management of Internet traffic to and from your data centers and cloud service providers, is the first and fundamental component of optimizing your use of the Internet. This whitepaper explores the benefits of leveraging cloud-based services for your global load balancing. A cloud-based GLB service removes the up-front equipment, configuration, and installation costs of specialized appliances - as well as the staff time required and risk introduced with on-going maintenance and support. Due to the fundamental differences between an on-premise solution and a solution designed for and resident on the Internet, cloud-based GLB can offer more flexibility to change configurations easily and quickly, broader global visibility, and more control over getting faster resolution to the best connection the first time. Taking your GLB to the cloud can help you achieve your end-user application performance and availability goals more cost-effectively. You can deliver optimal services to your many constituents while freeing your time and resources to focus on other business initiatives.
