Brocade ADX Advanced Techniques in Server Load Balancing

Overview


This advanced course provides an in-depth study of Server Load Balancing (SLB) using Brocade ADX ServerIron products.

The course focuses on advanced techniques of implementing SLB in a variety of network topologies. It includes an intense study of SLB theory of operations, configuration, network design and troubleshooting.

The course is lab-intensive and as result, fast-moving. Key topics include, but are not limited to; Load Balancing, Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB), SSL, High Availability (HA) and Layer 7 switching. This is a blended learning course that includes a three day instructor-led event with additional web-based training content.
