Case Study Leipzig University Gains a Top European University Status with the Help of Avi’s Modern Load Balancing Architecture

Leipzig University is an interdisciplinary, international comprehensive university, and one of the oldest universities in Germany that was founded in 1409. The university draws on an extensive range of subject areas on its path to becoming a top-level European university and to be recognised internationally from the research and learning provided by young scholars. The city of Leipzig is a centuries-old trading center as well as a scholarly and cultural center that has a heritage of international relations, cosmopolitan attitudes, tradition, and tolerance.

The university’s networking team is responsible for the infrastructure that makes applications available to the university’s students and faculty. With the influx of student enrollment applications coming in just a few hours during enrollment periods, it’s important to have the right load balancing architecture to ensure good-user experiences. The university had difficulty with their hardware load balancer not meeting self-service and automation needs, and not having insight to the end user interactions with their servers.

In this Avi case study, you’ll learn the following:

  • Why did Leipzig University choose Avi’s modern load balancing architecture for better visibility and analytics that simplify troubleshooting application issues?
  • How the network team is able to better scale services with greater responsiveness using “structured configuration”
  • How they they are able to avoid tromboning traffic from virtual environments to physical networking appliances and back
