Application and Infrastructure Availability

Easily manage load balancing, container traffic routing, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, and full failover in a disaster recovery situation. Keep your apps running 24/7.    

Why Application and Infrastructure Availability Matters

Your servers won’t reboot after an update. Your cloud provider has an outage. A Kubernetes pod just went down. Any of these can shut down your business, day or night. The question isn’t when you’ll get back online again. It’s how many customers you’ll have lost in the process.
