by Iwan Price-Evans on GSLB • February 8, 2022

In a world that is more reliant than ever on global connectivity, it’s increasingly important to understand how data traffic flows between different nodes or is routed between different locations, and how to design a network for resilience, performance, and compliance.  When architecting a network for fast, secure, and resilient application delivery (for example, for a multinational e-commerce website or a streaming media service) one of the most important decisions is whether to put all your infrastructure in one location for simplicity or to build a geographically distributed network.

Modern Application Load Balancing With A Centralized Control Plane
