Chances are you’ve seen the phrase “intent-based application services” or “intent-based load balancer” (hint: that language is used all over Avi Networks' website). Application services refer to load balancing, WAF, and service mesh. But what about “intent-based”? Is “intent-based” just a bunch of marketing fluff? Actually, no. I’m well-versed in the fluff of industry peers. The story behind intent-based is straight forward.

Should My Load Balancer Be Elastic? Elastic Load Balancing by Avi

Posted on Apr 14, 2017 7:28:00 AM

In today’s business environment, enterprises need their load balancers to be elastic and provide network and app teams with the ability to get their job done faster. Applications have to be responsive to users, even when there is a sudden traffic spike. Users are used to an "always-on" experience and apps need to respond to these expectations.
