Designing for Infrastructure Agility: Lessons for Economic Opportunity

by Bethany Hill on Scalability • August 13, 2020

The pandemic forced rapid scale-up and highlighted design decisions as critical to building an adaptive business. With the global economy suffering the consequences of COVID-19 and national lockdowns, there has been a large focus on cutting costs, reducing staff and stripping back to the bare necessities. In the land of application delivery and cloud computing, the reverse has happened. Companies rushed to provision more capacity in response to sustained increases in traffic and usage driven by the move from offline to online for so many activities.

Creating a load balancer for Developers (and why we use our own ADC)

by Iwan Price-Evans on DevOps • June 16, 2020

Developers building business-critical applications need an IT environment that allows them to work quickly and securely. This means having reliable web servers that are always available and protected. However, in the agile world of modern application development, they can’t always wait for the IT team to set up and configure load balancers and ADCs for them. They need their own solutions, and they need them to be tailored to their own needs. When we developed Snapt Nova, we were our first customer. Our development team uses Nova themselves (the process known as "dogfooding") to provide load balancing for Nova development and deployment. This post is about what developers need, how the right load balancer or application delivery controller (ADC) can support and empower developers, and why Nova might be the best load balancer for developers – or, at least, why our own developers seem to think it is.

Is Your ADC Ready for Multi-Cloud Deployments?

by Iwan Price-Evans on Cloud • March 17, 2020

Moving to “the cloud,” as it’s casually known, is a misnomer. There isn’t a single, homogeneous cloud destination, but rather, a spectrum of different types of clouds ranging from private to public, and multiple varieties in between. In addition, there are multiple public cloud providers to choose from. As enterprises increasingly adopt diverse cloud strategies and run business-critical applications in multiple clouds, this has major implications for ensuring application delivery. And not all Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) are up to the job for multi-cloud deployments.

Best Practices for Load Balancing Docker Containers

by Iwan Price-Evans on Load Balancing • March 10, 2020

Containers are rapidly becoming the go-to software tool for application developers, and Docker is one of the most-loved container platforms according to the latest Stack Overflow developer survey. Docker simplifies software development so that developers can build applications that are lightweight, easily scalable and can run on any infrastructure. But when it comes to management and orchestration, the platform needs to be augmented with modern load balancing to ensure that business-critical applications are always up, fast and secure.
