Layer 7 availability, performance and security

Intelligent load balancing and WAF for DigitalOcean

Nova ADCs operate at Layer 7. That means intelligent, high performance load balancing with incredible analytics, anomaly and threat detection. Nova ADC is a supercharged load balancer for DigitalOcean, with far more functionality and features. Some highlights:

  • Tag-based Service Discovery: load balance based on DigitalOcean Tags instead of manual IP addresses.
  • Included GSLB: route traffic around the globe, and fail over to another DigitalOcean location if needed.
  • Security and acceleration: far more than just a load balancer, Nova offers a full ADC suite.
  • WAF for DigitalOcean: protect your servers with our powerful Layer 7 Web Application Firewall.
  • Autoscale ADC: dynamically launch and destroy ADCs to fit your traffic pattern through the day.

What does this mean for you? Nova deploys automatically into DigitalOcean. You can tell it to send traffic to your "webservers" tag and it'll discover their IPs automatically. It'll let you know HTTP reply times are slow suddenly, and can swap traffic over to another DigitalOcean location if one goes down!
