Oracle Traffic Director

Business leaders expect new business solutions to come to market quickly while the complexity of these solutions increases dramatically. Not only have the scope and scale of these solutions expanded, significant portions of the solutions are increasingly implemented outside of the IT organization. Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) provide access to, and information about, back-end business processes. As the number of APIs an organization produces and uses increases, the management and visibility of these APIs becomes increasingly important. The Oracle API Manager facilitates the creation of APIs that expose the functionality of backend systems and services. These APIs are published for use by application developers and are managed and monitored at runtime.

Oracle Traffic Director offers the following key benefits:
  • High throughput, low latency HTTP(s), WebSocket, and TCP software load balancer.
  • Rule-based request routing and reverse proxy server. Request rate limiting, throttling and QoS tuning.
  • Flexible and fine-grained monitoring and High availability through standard based VRRP protocol.
  • High performance SSL/TLS transactions including offloading SSL, caching HTTP responses from origin server(s) and compression.
  • Built-in WebLogic optimizations such as cluster discovery, and connection persistence synchronization.
  • Mod Security based Web Application Firewall to protect back-end applications from malicious attacks like CSRF, SQL Injection and so on.
