Software Defined Load Balancing

Software defined load balancing is built on an architecture with a centralized control plane and a distributed data plane. The control plane is the brain behind the services delivered by the data plane. It receives and analyzes the continuous stream of application telemetry sent by the distributed load balancers across the environments to decide on service placement, autoscaling, and high availability for each application. The load balancers can be deployed across multiple environments (data center or public cloud) and managed by the control plane.
