About the F5 DNS Load Balancer Cloud Service

The F5 DNS Load Balancer Cloud Service is a global server load balancing (GSLB) solution offered in the cloud as a service. In other words, it is a SaaS solution for GSLB. It can provide automatic failover, load balancing across multiple locations, increased reliability by avoiding a single point of failure, and increased performance by directing traffic to the optimal site. It does this by monitoring application availability and performance, and then dynamically responding to client DNS queries in order to direct traffic based on rules that you define.
