Radware Alteon

Step by Step Procedure To Upgrade The Radware Alteon Version.

In this blog, we will go through the step-by-step process of upgrading the Radware Alteon (Server load balancer) from its old to the new version.

What is SLB?

A Server load balancer (SLB) is a piece of hardware (or virtual hardware) that distributes network and/or application traffic across many servers by acting as a reverse proxy. A load balancer is used to increase concurrent user capacity and application overall dependability. A load balancer can benefit by dividing the workload over multiple servers and so reducing overall pressure on each server.
