Project Barracuda - Franklin Synergy Bank: Link Balancer
Starting with efficiently routing application traffic among links, the Barracuda Link Balancer adds advanced policy features for optimizing inbound and outbound application traffic.
It also provides a firewall and VPNs for added layers of security at the network's edge and beyond. Link failover for HA and features for managing traffic priorities, bandwidth and reporting, makes it an essential part of any network infrastructure.
