Scale your infrastructure horizontally.
Skylands Networks Application Delivery Controller (ADC) offers better performance at significantly lower costs with near-instant, on-demand scaling to meet seasonal and temporary spikes. If you’re a small enterprise looking to scale your applications beyond one server — both to improve service speed as well as reliability — our ADC is the perfect fit for you.
The Skylands Networks ADC boasts a robust feature set, making it the best-of-breed solution on the market. Our top-of-the-line features include:
- High Scalability
- High Availability IP Failover
- Cross Datacenter Replication
- Cache Data Synchronization
- Out-of-the-box Acceleration for Magento and WordPress
And unlike most basic load balancer designs, which only monitor for a simple HTTP status code or text match, our engineers implement custom, comprehensive monitoring of your websites. Each customer is unique, and each script is created around what accurately defines up/down for your application.
For enhanced security environments, Skylands Networks ADC can securely communicate with HTTPS backends, as well as to drop to faster HTTP connectivity when Edge encryption is sufficient. Our ADC provides Web Application Firewall Protection (compatible with mod_security), with Layer-7 Anti-DDoS Filtering as well as IP level bandwidth and request rate throttling.
Cutting Edge Technologies
At the heart of our technology is our Edge Side Caching capability, which provides both public and private (per user) flexible cache mechanisms that allow entire (cached) page assembly without backend access. Further enhanced by our HTTP/2 and QUIC functionality and our SSL/TLS offloading capability, the flexible load balancing algorithm provides optimal performance and is configurable to match virtually every deployment.
High Performance Caching
Serves cached content two times faster, on average, than Varnish Solutions.
Provides out-of-the-box, real-time, asynchronous replication capability.
Layer-7 Anti-DDoS Filtering
Utilizes sophisticated statistics-based sensing for detecting and thwarting DDoS attacks.

Let’s talk about how we can help you solve your problems.
“We’ve been dealing with the drama of website hosting and server management since 1994. What an amazing breath of fresh air we found when we discovered Skylands Networks! For the first time we have a team managing our servers that is engaged, that knows us and our business goals, and is just as dedicated to getting the best, most reliable service for our clients as we are.”
“About two years ago—upon a strong recommendation from one of our senior developers—we moved our online platform to Skylands Networks. Reliability, capacity, scalability, and security were all extremely important to us, as we host intellectual property from all over the world on our site. Migrations are always a tricky business, but our former host provider was not delivering. The Skylands Networks Team handled a complex migration professionally and effectively and delivered and exceeded our expectations in all of the required areas. Additionally, their responsiveness has been outstanding, even on weekends and in the evenings.”
“Skylands has proved to be a valuable asset to our site. Joe always makes himself available for any questions and is always willing to jump in and troubleshoot any issues at any time, even if they’re not directly related to the host server. His insight and knowledge give us comfort that we’re in good hands. We have never experienced any unexpected downtime on our site since being hosted by Skylands. When maintenance or interruption is necessary, Joe will make sure the interruption is minimal and only happens during the quietest time on our site. Skylands’ rates are very reasonable and much less expensive than major competitors.”
“For over 10 years, we’ve been using Magento for our store. We grew from very small to a good amount of visitors daily, and the traffic made us change servers many times. Unfortunately, it was always coming back to case one after a few months, slowdowns over slowdowns. With Skylands Networks, we’ve never seen such a HIGH speed on our website; it’s insane. They know their stuff very well, answer promptly and are really nice to deal with. If you want speed and reliability, those are the people to go to!”
“Skylands Networks has been instrumental in growing our business by providing top of the line server management and customer service for the past several years. They have helped us develop and sustain a complex system of weather data services for the commercial airline industry which is reliable and trusted by our clients. We were fortunate in finding Skyland Networks to achieve our business goals and would highly recommend their services.”
