What is Application Delivery Controller?

Application Delivery Controller (ADC) is the part of centralized management that you use to manage the configuration objects (such as servers, nodes, pools, and pool members) that move your traffic.

ADC helps the user:

  • Create efficient work flows to view the LTM® configurations in a relational and dynamic user interface.
  • Control access to configuration objects using fine-grained, role-based access control (RBAC). This allows administrators to delegate frequently performed operations (for example, enabling or disabling pool members) to the correct team member.
  • Maintain ultimate control of the LTM configuration by providing a staging option. Delegated team members make all relevant changes, then the administrator can apply them after a quick review.
