Direct Access also known as Unified Remote Access, is a VPN-like technology that provides intranet connectivity to client computers when they are connected to the internet.
It was initially introduced in Windows server 2008 R2 supporting Windows 7 and Windows 8 Enterprise clients .
Direct Access clients are designed to connect automatically as soon as the computer connects to the Internet, initiating a VPN if the client detects that its not connecting from within the network.
Remote access is vital to organisations of any size and any level of downtime is not acceptable. Edgenexus offers 3 key advantages for load balancing a Microsoft Direct Access server environment.
The Edgenexus load balancer when load balancing DirectAccess can either load balance the NLS (Network Location Server) OR in fact act as a NLS (Network Location Server).
By configuring the Edgenexus load balancer to respond to NLS requests the Client will know whether its on the local network or not without the administrator having to provision a separate NLS server.
