Load Balancing Reduces Costs While Increasing Reliability
Network packet brokers (NPBs) have many useful features. One of the most important of these features is the ability to load balance data across multiple ports, as well as multiple security and monitoring tools. This performs two useful functions. One is the ability to create n+1 survivability for monitoring solution components. The second is to maximize the utilization of existing security and monitoring tools. Read this solution brief to see how you can implement higher availability and/or reduce costs for your network monitoring solution.
