Citrix ADC overview

Additional use cases

As enterprises adopt hybrid cloud strategies, applications are distributed across clouds connected through the Internet, and customers access these apps online. With an increasing reliance on the Internet for application delivery to users, connectivity experiences can vary greatly due to frequent and dynamic changes in Internet conditions, which are not controlled by any single entity. Traditional global server load balancing (GSLB) is blind to the state of the Internet.

When building an application delivery strategy over the Internet, you need to consider optimal placement of points of presence for your content based on the location of your main audience. You need visibility into the ever-changing conditions of the Internet to intelligently steer requests to the best point of presence and server for each individual user.
