Highlights

  • Supports flow persistency in order to maintain consistent data flows
  • Is extremely cost-effective compared to external load balancers
  • Is scalable from 1 to up to 84 servers across up to six BladeCenter chassis

Reduce complexity and costs associated with appliance sprawl by consolidating on an IBM BladeCenter platform with a high-performance, low-latency statistical load balancer integrated into a 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) blade switch: IBM iFlow Director.

The IBM iFlow Director is designed to deliver high availability, scalability and lower cost of ownership for security gateways, traffic management, service differentiation, lawful interception and network surveillance solutions.

Mobile wireless networks are changing. Voice, video, storage and data are quickly converging onto a very large scale network. The convergence of fixed and mobile networks to a common next-generation Interface Protocol (IP) infrastructure is driving exponential growth in network traffic. The IBM iFlow Director offers high availability, scalability and low cost of ownership for traffic optimization solutions for mobile networks that include traffic management, traffic optimization, service differentiation and analytics.
