Microsoft Forefront UAG brings complete, secure remote access to corporate resources for employees, partners, and vendors on both managed and unmanaged PCs and mobile devices. Resonate Global Dispatch allows Forefront UAG customers to easily scale their deployments by optimizing access to multiple, geographically dispersed locations and distributed server environments.
"We are very excited about our support for the Forefront UAG," said Sam Farhad, VP of sales at Resonate. "Companies with dispersed workforces, customers and partners are increasingly using the Internet to access corporate resources. Because of the escalating use of a wide range of endpoint devices, IT administrators need to provide secure and reliable access to their resources, and therefore, access to the Forefront UAG servers must be fast and reliable, and must scale to meet the demands.”
Forefront UAG server administrators deploy Global Dispatch with its Active Intelligence to ensure their users receive a positive experience, by programmatically providing preferential services in addition to high availability and performance.
Forefront UAG native multi-node deployments enable support for greater numbers of clients. However, in doing so, administrators lose a great deal of flexibility and manageability, as these deployments require all the Forefront UAG servers to be located in the same data center, and on the same network segments. The default UAG deployment relies on DNS round robin for the distribution of client requests across different data centers or network segments.
Using Global Dispatch’s Active Intelligence, multiple data center UAG deployments can act as a single, highly available system. With the Global Dispatch layer, the ability to load balance traffic across multiple UAG deployments is seamless. All data centers share the same url(s) or host names, and are redundant with one another, both in terms of scalability, as well as availability.
Resonate Global Dispatch monitors the data centers with distributed Forefront UAG servers. When a failure is detected in the data center, Global Dispatch automatically redirects traffic away from the failed data center.
