Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager

par Brocade Communications Systems

Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager (Brocade vTM) is a software-based Layer 7 application delivery controller (ADC) designed to deliver faster, high performance user experiences and more reliable access to websites and applications, whether they run in a public cloud, private cloud or virtualized environments, while maximizing the efficiency and capacity of web and application servers. Highly portable, Brocade vTM is ideal for hybrid environments, moving with your application as required.

Brocade vTM inspects and processes application traffic with full payload inspection and streaming. As requests are received, a range of optimization techniques ensures that requests are presented in the most appropriate manner to the web and application servers. Responses from the application can be compressed, cached and returned to the client at optimum speed, while freeing up resources on the server. Built-in TrafficScript software controls how individual requests are optimized, routed, and transformed. Traffic management rules may also be created using Java extensions.

All but the simplest applications benefit from the use of a load balancer. Brocade vTM offers so much more than load balancing as it provides granular control of in-bound and out-bound traffic via a range of sophisticated layer 7 features – check out the links below for Product Data Sheets, User Communities and information on Brocades partnership with Azure. There is also a handy Licensing Guide and a detailed 'Getting Started' Guide to help with deployment and configuration.
