High Availability and Scalability
For high traffic environments, the Barracuda Load Balancer can distribute traffic based on several scheduling algorithms, including round robin, server weighting and least connections. For applications requiring persistence, the Barracuda Load Balancer can maintain state using client IP addresses and client cookies. The Barracuda Load Balancer’s integrated service monitor ensures that servers and their associated applications are always operational. In the event of server or application outage, the Barracuda Load Balancer facilitates automatic failover among servers to ensure continuous availability. To mitigate risks associated with failures of the load balancers themselves, two Barracuda Load Balancers can be deployed in an active/passive configuration.
Easy-to-Use and Maintain
Featuring automatic discovery and configuration tools through an intuitive Web interface, the Barracuda Load Balancer is easy to deploy. To minimize ongoing administration associated with security, the Barracuda Load Balancer alutomatically receives current intrusion prevention and security updates.
The Barracuda Load Balancer's administrative tools feature state-of-the-arts statistical reporting tools that show the performance of an organization's network. The Web screens are comprehensive, allowing configuration of virtually every part of the system. Administrators can choose to use a "quick add" function that assumes default settings for servers or they can edit individual real servers/ services and manually specify settings for optimal configurations.
