Why encrypt with SSL/TLS in the first place? This is like asking why use car seats. It might be obvious now but just a few decades ago, it wasn’t uncommon for a group of unbuckled kids to be piled in the back of a car or truck (this would be a nightmare for parents today).

In an earlier blog, “Avi Vantage: A Cloud-Scale Distributed Software Load Balancer For Everyone”, we had described the high-level architecture of the Avi Vantage platform. The platform consists of a clustered centralized Controller, a scale-out distributed Layer-7 Reverse Proxy data path called as Service Engine (SE), a Visibility/Analytics engine, a RESTful interface to the Controller that enables integration with external orchestration engines, and a fast and responsive HTML5 UI. It is designed ground up to be a modern cloud-scale Application Delivery Controller (ADC) that enables application deployment across any cloud - private, public, or hybrid.
