Application Delivery Fabric is a framework which gives organizations a single point for control, analysis and diagnosis of key application metrics. Components of an application delivery fabric are:
Application Delivery Controller - intelligently manages client connections to complex Web and enterprise applications. The controller is a software program that manages or directs the flow of data between two entities.
Management and Control Interface - for application delivery assets showing their status and performance. This should provide performance metrics across all hosting platforms: data center, private cloud, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and public cloud.
Monitoring Service - that delivers insights from within the application environment, reporting anomalies and suggesting remediation that can be handled by an organization’s own IT staff or by the ADC vendor’s support team.
Metered Licensing - provides a flexible and elastic way to license resources within the application delivery fabric to meet variable application capacity demands and environments.
Professional Services - offer expertise, insight, and accelerated time to value by ensuring rapid, issue-free deployment of application delivery resources.
