Traffic Management is the process of measuring and controlling the communications (traffic, packets) on a network link, to avoid filling the link to capacity or overfilling the link, which would result in network congestion and poor performance.
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.

Managing a large Facebook Page (500,000+ Fans) comes with a unique set of challenges. While it’s great to have a large audience - it provides fantastic opportunities to generate high ROI from social - an audience of such scale comes with equally fantastic challenges. You need to be prepared in order to succeed.
Cloud computing and the "bring your own device" (BYOD) trend will impact the design of future datacenters and their supporting networks. To attain the kind of business agility that companies now demand, network infrastructure needs to provide the flexibility required by cloud application workloads and the changing traffic patterns fostered by BYOD. To make networks more agile, new approaches to network implementation need to be enabled. As these trends continue, application delivery controllers (ADCs) will be critical elements in the new network infrastructure. This Technology Spotlight examines these trends and the role that F5 Networks' integrated scalable platform plays in this strategic market.

Between the proliferation of mobile devices and the ever increasing amount of content on the web, DNS usage has seen a huge increase in recent years. Meanwhile, DNS continues to be a tempting target for attackers, and when they succeed in disrupting DNS, all external data center services are affected. For organizations confronting these growth and security challenges, F5’s new full proxy architecture for DNS provides a complete solution for global, local, and cloud load balancing.
The application delivery controller has evolved into a key component of the data center architecture, and enterprises should evaluate ADCs based on how they integrate with this architecture and support more-advanced features, such as user and traffic control and monitoring.
