What is Application Delivery?

by Bethany Hendricks on ADC • December 23, 2020

Application delivery can refer to individual software or hardware components like Load Balancing, Web Application Firewalls, Global Server Load Balancers and Accelerators, or form part of an Application Delivery Controller which provides all of the functionality and features of the individual components under a single control-plane. The Application Delivery Controller can be deployed as a software suite to existing infrastructure and can even be deployed directly into cloud environments.
