Description

This service sits between an IT resource (an IT service or application,or a set of different IT services or applications) ) and its consumers, and serves to increase the maximum load that the resource can handle, or to help business continuity by allowing access to instances of the resource spread over multiple sites, or both. To this end, the service accepts connections from the resource's clients, and direct them to an available instance of the IT resource.

Examples of components that deliver Access Distribution services are load balancer appliances and a web proxy servers. However, this service is not limited to "pure" network use: IT services may have Access Distribution functionality implemented internally as well.

Note that Access Distribution services are often combined with Access Security services.
