Adobe Experience Manager Dispatcher Converter converts existing configurations on AEM Dispatcher to configurations on AEM as a Cloud Service Dispatcher.
Dispatcher is Adobe Experience Manager’s caching, or load-balancing, or both, tool. Using AEM’s Dispatcher also helps to protect your AEM server from attack. Therefore, you can increase the security of your AEM instance by using the Dispatcher with an enterprise-class web server.
The most common use of Dispatcher is to cache responses from an AEM publish instance, to increase the responsiveness and security of your externally facing published website.
See Dispatcher Overview to learn how Dispatcher performs caching, returns documents and performs Load Balancing.
Learn how to structure the AEM as a Cloud Service Apache and Dispatcher configurations, and how to validate and run it locally before deploying to Cloud environments.
