Sizing and Licensing

Fusion ADC is licensed as a High Availability (HA) pair. The license you need to purchase depends on the methodology of connectivity configuration that you choose to use. There are two methods of connectivity configuration: SSL Pass-through and SSL Offloading/Bridging.

SSL Pass-through

SSL pass-through is the simplest of the two methods and allows you to have a much greater number of devices connected through the appliance. There is no SSL inspection carried out within the Fusion ADC appliance allowing much less appliance resources to be used. In such cases Layer 4 connections are used.

SSL Offloading/Bridging

This method results in all transactions being offloaded and inspected within the appliance, and then sent onto the destination as a seperate SSL transaction. The advantage of using this method is that you can employ many inbuilt features of the Fusion ADC appliance provided by FlightPATH. The disadvantage is that a much larger number of resources are required to perform offloading, bridging, decryption, re-encryption and any other actions you may configure. In this mode, SSL-TPS connections are used. We recommend that for connection of thin clients to the infrastructure you use SSL Pass-through as the method of choice.
