Application Delivery Controllers (ADC)
Two main priorities of CIOs today are data center consolidation and the adoption of virtualisation and cloud computing technologies.
These two priorities are tightly linked and are driven by similar business needs – cost reduction, business agility and operational efficiency.
IT organisations wishing to address these priorities as part of the implementation of a Next-Generation Datacenter strategy strategy will usually start by consolidating the servers and storage layers through virtualisation. However, technologies have emerged that allow IT organisations to implement the same consolidation and virtualisation concepts in additional layers within the data center, thus achieving even higher cost reduction and greater business agility.
Our preferred partner’s solution, Radware’s Virtual Application Delivery Infrastructure (VADI™), offers the next-generation application delivery solution that combines leading ADC consolidation, virtualisation, and cloud technologies, to offer IT organizations the best and highest ADC consolidation ratios, as well as unmatched application delivery efficiency and agility for the virtual and cloud data centers.
Radware’s ADC-VX is ideal for enterprises, hosting and service providers as well as cloud providers that want to significantly reduce costs by consolidating multiple dedicated ADC devices into a single consolidated ADC device.
It is designed from the ground up to enable consolidation of ADC hardware devices without compromising resiliency or performance predictability of ADC services. This results in significant savings of hardware costs and operational expenses. Radware’s application delivery and application security products deliver full resilience for business-critical applications, maximum IT efficiency, and complete business agility. Over 60 industry awards give you confidence in Radware’s performance.
Radware ADC-VX is the industry’s first application delivery controller hypervisor that runs multiple virtual ADC instances on a dedicated ADC hardware, Radware’s OnDemand Switch platforms.
This specialised hypervisor runs fully functional virtual ADC instances each of which delivers ADC functionality just like a dedicated physical ADC device, including:
- Local and global server load balancing
- Application acceleration through FastView
- Layer 7 aware content redirection and modification
- Application specific optimized templates, automation and reports through AppShape
If you need to proactively maintain your application performance and protect service level agreements (SLAs) ADC-VX deserves more of your attention. Simply put, ADC-VX ensures that critical application SLAs are assured.
ADC-VX provides the agility and the simplicity that is required in the virtualised data center, driving faster deployment of new services and better alignment of ADC services with frequent configuration changes and changing business needs. For example, with ADC-VX you can scale resources allocated to specific virtual ADC instances without impacting other applications and migrate a virtual ADC instance when more capacity is needed.
Since each virtual ADC instance contains a complete and separated environment of resources, configurations and management, complete fault isolation is assured and applications cannot steal shared system resources.
