Five Reasons to Switch to Software for Load Balancing

This is for an ebook titled Five Reasons to Switch to Software for Load Balancing, and published by Nginx’s Floyd Smith.

Hardware-based application delivery controllers (ADCs) have been around for two decades. ADCs revolutionized the way we deliver applications in the early 2000’s. But now, as the industry has moved overwhelmingly to software-defined infrastructure and deployment tools, ADCs have become high-cost, potentially antiquated devices.

Today, the companies operating most effectively at web scale use a completely software-based stack that hardware ADCs do not fit into. These companies are increasingly looking to software application delivery tools such as NGINX Plus to cut costs, increase performance, and achieve far greater flexibility and control.

We recently published a widely read price-performance comparison that documents the tremendous cost savings and additional flexibility that come from choosing software vs. hardware ADCs. The new ebook expands on that report, exploring five critical reasons why IT executives, network and operations professionals, and application developers should move from hardware ADCs to software solutions, including:

  • Dramatically reduce costs
  • Move to DevOps
  • Deploy everywhere
  • Rapid response
  • No contractual constraints
