Secure Global Load Balancing
The Cisco GSS 4492R Global Site Selector is part of the Cisco ACE family of application control engines and a crucial component of any data center architecture that requires an appliance-based, security-focused, universal global load balancer.
With optional software, the Cisco GSS 4492R can be deployed as a Domain Name System (DNS) appliance supporting Cisco Network Registrar Release 6.2(3) to provide scalable naming and addressing services for enterprise and service provider networks requiring dependable, global quad-play services (voice, data, and video with mobility services).
The Cisco GSS 4492R makes unique use of other Cisco technologies to mitigate the effects of a DNS-based distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. This distinctive self-protection capability can be deployed to shield any DNS infrastructure, such as Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) services and Microsoft-based client devices along with Microsoft Active Directory.
