- Load Balancing
Load Balancers relieve overloaded monitoring tools by distributing traffic, by flow, to multiple replicated tools working in parallel. Tool replication enables you to increase the throughput of your security and performance monitoring by factors of 2, 3, 4, or more without incurring the CAPEX, integration, and learning-curve costs of acquiring new, unfamiliar tools. The complete line of Net Optics devices with load balancing functionality encompass solutions for all topologies of monitoring load balancing including:
- Out-of-band, as with traffic recorders and intrusion detection systems (IDS)
- Inline, as with intrusion prevention systems (IPS) and next-generation firewalls
- Tool sharing, where multiple independent links can share a load-balanced pool of inline tools
xBalancer is a purpose-built hardware load balancer designed to share network-monitoring devices across multiple links and solve oversubscription.

Enterprise Security & Intrusion Prevention
Rapid evolution of the data center is creating boundless new opportunities, but along with those come urgent monitoring and management challenges—multiple devices from many vendors, proliferating threats, soaring costs, scalability needs, 10G/40G/100G transition, environmental and...
This paper discusses performance with your monitoring and secuirty tools. Are you getting the best performance from your monitoring and security tools—or is oversubscription causing them to drop packets and miss messages? Today’s skyrocketing traffic and high-speed 10 Gbps links put...
A Global Cloud Provider was understandably worried that its current tools wouldn’t be able to handle the increased traffic caused by upgrading from 1G to 10G. Such intensive pressures threaten to overwhelm and limit the effectiveness of the very devices that carry out the monitoring....
Company relies on xBalancer to load balance and prevent overburdening of monitoring tools,while enabling tools to be added quickly and cost-efficiently in an intensive, high-demand environment
Global Cloud Provider’s Upgrade Triggers the Urgent Need for Load-Balancing...
The purpose of load balancing in a network traffic monitoring context is to distribute traffic evenly among a number of monitoring tools in order to process more traffic than a single tool can support. Static load balancing refers to load balancing algorithms that distributes the traffic based...
Load Balancing—A Proven Method for Enhancing Performance. Many network architects and monitoring tool providers are addressing network performance challenges by using load balancing techniques. Load balancing is a well-understood technology that has been used in the past to distribute...
