HelloSekou,

You can use FortiADC Link Load Balancing (LLB) in combination with Global Load Balancing (GLB) to offer application over multiple WAN links wit different IP subnets. Comes default with FortiADC, no need for additional modules.

Hi Ferry,
Thank you for your feedback.
However in comparison with the functionality that is available on the FortiWan, which of the two is advantageous?
I need to be able to justify the choice of one or the other with my client.


Thank's.

Hello Sekou,

Consider FortiADC for DC solutions where (web) services are offered towards clients from multiple sites or over multiple ISP's. FortiGate SD-WAN/Branch for the other solutions.
