ALOHA VIRTUAL Application Delivery Controller

Plug-and-play Application-Layer load balancing appliance for enterprises with virtualized infrastructure.

Powerful Features

The ALOHA Virtual Load Balancer provides the same powerful Application and Network (Layer 7 and Layer 4) load balancing features that are available in the ALOHA Hardware Appliance.

* Processing performance depends on the power of the server and hypervisor running below the Virtual Appliance.
