Application Delivery Controller (ADC)

An application delivery controller (ADC) is a computer network device in a datacenter, often part of an Application Delivery Network (ADN), that helps perform common tasks, such as those done by web sites to remove load from the web servers themselves. Many also provide load balancing. ADCs are often placed in the DMZ (Perimeter Network), between the outer firewall or router and a web farm.
