FortiBalancer Overview

The three different FortiBalancer models; FortiBalancer 400, FortiBalancer 1000 and FortiBalancer 2000 allow for a variety of different deployments depending on an organization's specific requirements. Each model utilizes multi-core processor technology and ASIC acceleration for linear scalability. This enables the FortiBalancer series appliances to handle heavy Layer 4 through 7 traffic loads while delivering unmatched performance and scalability for small, medium and large enterprises.

Since FortiBalancer appliances are fully aware of Layers 4 through 7 application traffic, connections, transactions, and content; IT departments can create event-driven policies for intelligent distribution of application traffic across web and application servers, while eliminating the need to replicate content across multiple servers.
