Barracudas Application Delivery Controller

Highly demanding enterprise networks require full-featured application delivery that optimizes
application load balancing and performance while providing protection from an everexpanding list of intrusions and attacks. The affordable Barracuda Load Balancer ADC is
ideal for optimizing application performance and availability. Advanced features for
application optimization, geo-based load balancing, and integrated security put Barracudas
ADC far above other solutions for performance - and value.

Availability
In todays application-centric world, there is no such thing as downtime. Applications must be
there every time customers or clients want access. Barracudas ADC provides a number of features
that enable high availability both within a datacenter and across different sites.
