Introduction : Basic network topology
Basic network topology
Your network routing infrastructure should ensure that all network traffic destined for the backend servers is directed to the FortiADC appliance. Usually, clients access backend servers from the Internet through a firewall such as a FortiGate, so the FortiADC appliance should be installed between your servers and the firewall.
Figure 1 shows a basic deployment. The deployment topology might be different for global load balancing (GLB) or high availability (HA) clusters. Refer to the chapters for those features for illustrations.
