CSS vs LD

I need some help finding documentation of (ideally) on the differences between the CSS (arrowpoint) and local director.

Cheers

Re: CSS vs LD

The LD and CSS are both products that are used for Content Switching.

The LD intelligently load balances TCP/IP traffic across multiple servers and is equipped with a hot standby failover mechanism eliminating all points of failure for the server farm. LocalDirector is a high performance Internet appliance with proven performance in the highest traffic Internet sites.

The Cisco CSS 11000 series content services switches are Layer 5/7 aware and provide a robust front-end for Web server farms and cache clusters with unique features for e-commerce, Web hosting, and content delivery.

Cisco's CSS 11000 series switches, powered by Cisco Web Network Services (Web NS) software, offer unique services such as:

Directing Web traffic based on full visibility of URLs, host tags, and cookies

Enabling premium services for e-commerce and Web hosting providers

Strengthening DoS protection, cache/firewall load-balancing, and 'flash-crowd' management

The product documentation is available at:

Refer to it for details.

Re: CSS vs LD

Might want to mention that the CSS is new and should be around for a while. The LD is old and will be EOL'd if it hasn't already. Probably something to consider....
