Hillstone ADC Value Proposition

Flexible Balancing Providing the Best Experience

Hillstone ADC provides a rich set of capabilities, from server load balancing to link load balancing and for multi-site applications, global server local balancing. This ensures the highest availability and best access experience for application end-users.

Rich Application Acceleration Capabilities

The Hillstone ADC suite provides more than just simple load balancing. With built-in intelligent caching, connection multiplexing and content compression, it offloads CPU-intensive tasks from backend application servers and reduces the need for repetitive requests, mitigating additional investment in backend servers as user load scales.

Application Migration Flexibility

The ADC solution provides transparent migration for websites supporting IPv4 today to support IPv6. With intelligent rewriting capabilities, ADC can provide native v6 experience to end users while allowing application owners to migrate the backend at their own pace. Likewise, it supports large scale secure migration from HTTP to HTTPS without reconfiguration of backend systems.

Smooth Integration with Hillstone Suite

Hillstone ADC integrates seamlessly with other components of the Hillstone suite. Leveraging the ADC’s SSL hardware offload, Hillstone NIPS and NGFW systems can process plain text traffic without extra performance consumption — improving performance without increasing costs.
