CISCO ACE - Port Forwarding + Load balancing

HI

I need to do the following scenario. I want to know that weather CISCO ACE is capable of doing it or not.

we have a special problem that we want to load balance the traffic over one server but on different TCP ports.

for example the traffic going to server with desPort:8080 , we want the Load balancer to redirect this traffic to the server but each time with a different port.(8080 or 8081 or 8082 or 8083).

in another word, load balance the traffic going to 10.1.1.1:8080 to these addresses: (10.1.1.1:8080 / 10.1.1.1:8081 / 10.1.1.1:8082 / 10.1.1.1:8083)

Is it possible to implement this kind of load balancing using CISCO ACE? and how can I do it?

thank you in advance

CISCO ACE - Port Forwarding + Load balancing

Just create a serverfarm with 4 rservers, the IP address will remain the same but the port will change in your association.

You might want to check out this new product called ITD.

Simple and faster solution:

ITD provides :

  1. ASIC based multi-terabit/s L3/L4 load-balancing at line-rate
  2. No service module or external L3/L4 load-balancer needed. Every N7k port can be used as load-balancer.
  3. Redirect line-rate traffic to any devices, for example web cache engines, Web Accelerator Engines (WAE), video-caches, etc.
  4. Capability to create clusters of devices, for example, Firewalls, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), or Web Application Firewall (WAF), Hadoop cluster
  5. IP-stickiness
  6. Resilient (like resilient ECMP)
  7. VIP based L4 load-balancing
  8. NAT (available for EFT/PoC). Allows non-DSR deployments.
  9. Weighted load-balancing
  10. Load-balances to large number of devices/servers
  11. ACL along with redirection and load balancing simultaneously.
  12. Bi-directional flow-coherency. Traffic from A-->B and B-->A goes to same node.
  13. Order of magnitude OPEX savings : reduction in configuration, and ease of deployment
  14. Order of magnitude CAPEX savings : Wiring, Power, Rackspace and Cost savings
  15. The servers/appliances don’t have to be directly connected to N7k
  16. Monitoring the health of servers/appliances.
  17. N + M redundancy.
  18. Automatic failure handling of servers/appliances.
  19. VRF support, vPC support, VDC support
  20. Supported on both Nexus 7000 and Nexus 7700 series.
  21. Supports both IPv4 and IPv6
  22. N5k / N6k support : coming soon
