Learn More About Global Server Load Balancing Challenges and Solutions
Today's data center presents many challenges - from the classic need for application availability to increasing performance and security standards. The rapid advances and rise in importance of data center virtualization ecosystems requires an advanced Application Delivery Controller (ADC) with superior load balancing capabilities. In order to keep customers and potential customers satisfied, your services need to be available at all times. A load balancer needs to solve multiple problems for an organization. Complex applications have increased pressure on networks. Security concerns have grown as more and more targeted attacks take place on the internet. While virtualization offers many benefits, it also presents many challenges. Without careful oversight and management, the availability and performance of virtualized applications can suffer. In addition, the growing and constantly changing scale needed to serve users and the evolving complexity of the applications used increase the strains and stress on networks - resulting in unwanted downtime, maintenance efforts and costs.
Radware's Alteon load balancer improves application availability with health monitoring, traffic redirection, global server load balancing, link high-availability and full redundancy that reduces service interruptions.

Alteon manages your resources for reliable uptime and availability. During times of high demand, Alteon is able to identify― in real-time― faulty elements and bypass them. From application failures to server or site failure, Alteon diagnoses the problem and corrects it to maintain session persistency. Powered by state-of-the-art, custom-designed hardware platforms that can be scaled to fit any need, Alteon revolutionizes load balancing and data center performance.
Deployment of application delivery services requires deep understanding of the application and takes weeks of staff work to configure, optimize and test the application. To accelerate and optimize the application delivery services, Radware offers AppShape™. AppShape technology reduces deployment time of application delivery services by 86%, while guaranteeing maximum value for each business critical application in terms of availability, performance and security.
AppShape offers configuration templates and wizards for leading business applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Lync, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle 10g, PeopleSoft, SAP ERP and more.
AppShape helps users setup and configure all the required ADC options in a user friendly format, including application server information, specific application health checks and redundancy options.
Radware's Attack Mitigation System (AMS) is a real-time network and application security solution that protects the application infrastructure against network and application downtime, application vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, information theft, web service attacks and web defacement. AMS is a set of patented technologies for the most advanced internet-borne cyber-attacks. It extends the "network" of attack detection and mitigation capabilities beyond the data center for:
AMS contains these key components:
If you're interested in cost savings through consolidation and virtualization, ADC-VX deserves your undivided attention.
Radware's ADC-VX is ideal for large enterprises, hosting and service providers as well as cloud providers that want to significantly reduce costs by consolidating multiple dedicated application delivery controller devices into a single consolidated application delivery controller device. It is designed from the ground up to enable consolidation of ADC hardware devices without compromising resiliency or performance predictability of application delivery controller services. This results in significant savings of hardware costs and operational expenses.
ADC-VX is the industry's first application delivery controller (ADC) hypervisor that runs multiple virtual ADC instances on a dedicated application delivery controller hardware. This specialized hypervisor runs fully functional virtual application delivery controller instances each of which delivers ADC functionality just like a dedicated physical ADC device.
Ensuring applications deliver the best quality of experience requires IT administrators to gain maximum visibility on all application delivery chain components, throughout the life cycle of the application. Radware's multilayer approach for monitoring the application delivery infrastructure, coupled with its integrated application performance monitoring (APM) module, provide a powerful tool to guarantee continuous high application SLA throughout the entire application life cycle. Cross-ADC infrastructure historical reports on resource utilization provide a holistic view enabling better capacity planning when rolling out new applications. In addition, drilldown-able real-time dashboards, that span multiple ADCs, enable instant visibility for spotting problems and a powerful tool for fast and accurate troubleshooting.
Radware's FastView is a web performance optimization (WPO) solution that enables faster websites and web-based applications. It transforms front-end optimization (FEO) from a lengthy and complex process to an automated function performed in real time, accelerating web application response time out-of-the-box.
And since we believe that acceleration is an essential component of a next generation application delivery controller (ADC), FastView integrates into our Alteon ADC.
