    Ishlangu is an Web accelerator, web application firewall and load balancer designed to accelerate, secure and scale the delivery of dynamic web pages and their content. It achieves this by intelligently optimising and caching frequently requested content. In contrast to other web accelerators and load balancers such as aiScaler (initially a server-side cache) or Nginx (primarily an origin server), Ishlangu was designed to be a comprehensive solution for accelerating and securing web application traffic.

    Ishlangu is based on Asynchronous I/O or Linux Epoll technology allowing it to employ a non-blocking, multiplexed IO design.[1]

    It can be deployed on public cloud computing platforms such as Amazon Web Services and private virtual environments. [2] It is considered an edge device as it proxies traffic from Internet users destined for web application severs.

    History[edit]

    The project was released in November 2012. [3] The software was written specifically for Linux to take advantage of the changes in the input/output model, based on asynchronous I/O and Linux Epoll. The entire software occupies its own dedicated server appliance and is available in standard virtual appliance formats.
