Global Traffic Management

Global Traffic Management helps internet users access your website or IP applications with greater reliability. It applies an internet-centric approach to global load balancing to increase site availability and responsiveness to online user requests. Unlike traditional hardware-based solutions that reside within data centers, the fault-tolerant Global Traffic Management service makes intelligent routing decisions. These are based on real-time data, center performance health, and global internet conditions. They transport user requests to the appropriate data center based on the best internet route for that user at that moment.
