AirWatch supports integration with a load balancer for improved performance and faster availability. However, successful integration requires some additional client-side configurations.

  • Configure the proper network changes for the Content Gateway to access various internal resources over the necessary ports.
  • Configure load balancers to persist a connection from a client to the same load balanced node with an algorithm of your selecting. AirWatch supports simple algorithms such as Round Robins and more sophisticated ones such as Least Connections.
  • Configure load balancers to Send Original HTTP Headers to avoid device connectivity problems. Content Gateway uses information in the request's HTTP header to authenticate devices.

If you want to deploy Content Gateway on the Unified Access Gateway virtual appliance with load balancing, see Unified Access Gateway Load Balancing Topologies section of Deploying and Configuring Unified Access Gateway guide available at docs.vmware.com.
