The idea of load balancing is well defined in the IT world: A network device accepts traffic on behalf ofa group of servers, and distributes that traffic according to load balancing algorithms and the availabilityof the services that the servers provide. From network administrators to server administrators to applicationdevelopers, this is a generally well understood concept.
Application Delivery Controllers understand applications and optimize server performance - offloading compute-intensive tasks that prevent servers from quickly delivering applications. Learn how ADCs have taken over where load balancers left off.
High availability solutions are no longer an all or nothing discussion about expensive, proprietary solutions. Today there are wide range of affordable alternatives that provide the required level of availability at a cost justified by the risks of downtime.

This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.
