Load Balancing Services


Entity Data’s advanced application load balancing and monitoring solution is powered by Citrix Netscaler® Application Delivery Controller (ADC), featuring unmatched security, superior L4-L7 load balancing and high-availability.

Our load balancing solution is built on high-end Citrix Netscaler® MPX appliances, capable of multi-Gigabit performance and handling millions of connections per second. This solution is fully-managed and monitored by our network operations team.

Our solution is ideal for distributing workloads and resources across multiple backend servers automatically, while health monitoring ensures backend resources are online and functioning normally.
