Link balancer for effective internet traffic management

Barracuda Networks : 18 September, 2008  (New Product)
Traffic management and routing across multiple internet connections made easier with the Link Balancer from Barracuda Networks
Barracuda Networks has launched the Barracuda Link Balancer, an affordable and powerful solution for routing and managing traffic across multiple Internet connections. Available in three models, the Barracuda Link Balancer optimises the use of multiple Internet links, such as T1s, T3s, DSL and cable connections from one or multiple Internet Service Providers (ISPs). Capable of automatic failover in the event of link failure, the Barracuda Link Balancer ensures that customer networks are always connected to the Internet.

"Fast and reliable Internet connectivity is central to the majority of mission-critical business applications," said Stephen Pao, vice president of product management for Barracuda Networks. "The Barracuda Link Balancer enables organisations to simply 'add-on' additional Internet connections for both speed and redundancy without other changes to their network environment."

The Barracuda Link Balancer's Web user interface allows administrators to define, manage and control bandwidth settings from one central location. Administrators can also view graphical traffic statistics to analyse hourly, daily or monthly usage. Clients and applications can be set permanently or for a predetermined period of time to be connected to specific links.

The Barracuda Link Balancer automatically detects Internet connection failure and enables service restoration. Tracking connections by saturation, availability, latency and performance, the Barracuda Link Balancer makes informed decisions to select the best link to handle Internet traffic without intervention from an administrator.

Designed to assist in scaling for high bandwidth requirements for organisations of all sizes, the Barracuda Link Balancer ensures that your network is always connected to the Internet while providing:.

* Automated failover
* Bandwidth management
* Quality of Service (QoS) for Internet applications
* Traditional perimeter firewall capabilities
* Simplified management of IP networks via DHCP and DNS caching servers
* Aggregate T1s, T3s, DSL and cable Internet connections

The Barracuda Link Balancer can either replace an existing edge router or firewall, or it can be deployed between the Internet and a network firewall. The Internet connection links plug into the Barracuda Link Balancer's multiple WAN ports and LAN access is granted through the switch.
