Barracuda Load Balancer ADC and VMware Horizon View
Virtual Desktop Infrastructures are an integral part of organizations across the globe. VMware Horizon View is one of the most popular VDI solutions available. High availability and security concerns, however, can mar an otherwise great user experience.
Barracuda Load Balancer ADC is an efficient solution to combat such challenges. A single cluster can enjoy enhanced performance with application-aware load balancing capabilities. Various servers are continuously polled for information on the load which is then used by the built-in adaptive scheduling algorithm to direct users to less loaded servers. In case of server downtime, Barracuda Load Balancer ADC takes the specific server out of service and redistributes traffic. This way all requests are evenly distributed, performance is improved and high availability is ensured.
Barracuda Load Balancer ADC also makes multiple server farms efficiently operational through Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB) capabilities. Users are directed to the nearest server farm and redirects in case of server problems are carried out seamlessly. User experience and productivity are heightened whilst latency is minimized. Secure front-end is assured for remote users with SSL offloading. It also improves performance of the servers since they can focus purely on delivering virtual desktops. Access can be restricted to authorized users only using integrations with LDAP/Active Directory and RADIUS. Application layer attacks can be blocked effortlessly and comprehensive traffic protection is facilitated by encrypting all connections.
Barracuda is known the world over as the leader in providing solutions that protect users, applications and data with solutions that are intuitive, efficient and affordable. With customer centricity at its heart, Barracuda provides invaluable subscription-based solutions that secure and protect data.
