Cloud-based Load Balancer

Load balancers are typically part of the overall application delivery controllers. They are used to distribute workloads across multiple servers to optimize resource usage, improve resiliency, reduce response times and maximize throughput. They redirect incoming requests based server load to prevent overloading any single server and are a great tool to defend against distributed denial of service attacks. Load balancers typically are used within data centers between the firewall and application servers.[...]

Is OpenStack ready for NFV?

Open source has had a massive impact on information technology and the web: The Linux operating system, the LAMP stack, browsers, the Android smartphone OS. Individual enthusiasts, universities, and businesses spend enormous resources to build technologies and then give them away for free. Are they out of their mind? The success of open source shows they are not.
