IDC Insight: Business Value of VMware NSX Advanced Load Balancer 

Digital transformation gave rise to digital application delivery. Modern application infrastructure and delivery requires speed of deployment to attain and increase Time to Value (TTV). In today’s cloud computing era (SaaS economy), microservices-based modern architecture has transformed the orchestration and delivery of business applications. In SaaS economy with global customers, businesses depend on seamless and robust application delivery as well as secure infrastructure with ease of management including security, scalability, elasticity, real time monitoring and visibility. Enterprises want speed of deployment with agility to increase productivity and realize significant reduction in IT costs (hardware procurement, management, maintenance, IT admins etc.). Application delivery controllers and load balancers ensure that applications perform optimally, delivering the availability, responsiveness, reliability, security, and elastic scalability that applications and digital businesses require.
