Load Balancing: LSWS + OLS vs. LiteSpeed ADC

If LiteSpeed Web Server and OpenLiteSpeed can also be used as load balancers, why is LiteSpeed ADC a better choice?

LiteSpeed Web Server and OpenLiteSpeed use an uncontrollable Round Robin algorithm as their load balancing function. This algorithm rotates between back-end nodes on every access regardless of the load on each node.

On the other hand, LiteSpeed Web ADC is an advanced load balancer that comes with some impressive features.

…the ability to choose different algorithms (including Round Robin, Least Load, and Least Sessions).

…the ability to specify session ID string and session timeout.

…the ability to insert tracking cookies.

Other Impressive Features

Zero Configuration allows authorized client servers to send their configuration (domains, ip addresses, ports, etc.) to LiteSpeed Web ADC. This feature provides an alternative way to set up load balancing dynamically rather than working with the WebAdmin interface.

High Scalability, High Availability IP failover, Cross Datacenter Replication, Cache Data Synchronization, out-of-the box acceleration for Magento and Wordpress, and other features that make LiteSpeed Web ADC the best-of-breed solution on the market.
