The FortiDirector Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB) Service is a cloud-based approach to solving the complexities of expanding applications across multiple data centers for disaster recovery, improved performance and reduced delivery costs.
Unlike traditional hardware-based GSLB appliances, FortiDirector provides an always-on, always-available, hosted GSLB solution that doesn’t require a device at every data center location or all your application delivery appliances be from the same manufacturer. Its DNS and HTTP resolution can route traffic to servers through any manufacturer’s application delivery devices, from single servers to even hosted servers from companies such as Amazon or Rackspace.
Through your fortidirector.com account you can set up rules based on network elements, geography, time of day or custom HTTP conditions to meet the unique needs of your business. With advanced health checking mechanisms, FortiDirector can accommodate almost any load balancing need or failover scenario to provide 100% uptime for your mission-critical applications.
FortiDirector is an ideal solution for medium and large enterprises, ASPs and SaaS providers that have distributed service ecosystems and want an easy to deploy, reliable high-performance GSLB solution.
