Why your next ADC should prioritize East-West load balancing

by Dave Blakey on DevOps • July 15, 2019

Microservices architecture is the new black when it comes to designing software applications. Developers are abandoning monolithic application structures and adopting microservices, particularly for very large applications, because they are more flexible, highly scalable, easier to manage and can provide the agility that DevOps teams require. But as more applications are decomposed into microservices, which all need to communicate with each other, this is putting considerable strain on traffic loads in the data center. Traditional hardware load balancers and Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) that were not designed to cope with microservices are struggling to keep up and are slowing down DevOps activities. The surge in data center traffic resulting from the rapid adoption of microservices demands a new approach to Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) that is optimized for “East-West” load balancing.
