The Global Traffic Director gives clients the ability to geographically respond to queries differently based on region.
GTD is useful if you have multiple different servers located around the world and you want to direct your traffic to the closest server. For example, you can want traffic for Mondaydemo1.com going to 126.96.36.199 in the US EAST region and the rest of the world to resolve 188.8.131.52. East Coast US querying clients are sent to 184.108.40.206 while the rest of the US and other worldwide querying clients are sent to 220.127.116.11.
