When building an Email Security solution, one of the ways to increase availability and performance is to provide redundancy of the SMTP sessions. Most email security solutions cannot provide such redundancy themselves, and are dependent on third party solutions in order to achieve load balancing. Unlike these solutions, CYBONET's PineApp Mail Secure features an embedded load balancer. This enables customers to achieve true load balancing capabilities without the need for an external device.
This white paper explains how load balancing works and the benefits thereof, including different configurations, terminology and topologies.
