Maximum Business Agility and IT Efficiency With Radware's vDirect™ Plug-in
The Need for Virtual Data Center Service Provisioning Automation
A virtualized data center has many resources and moving parts, as well as a high degree of flexibility. This means that managing all of the IT resources (e.g. creating a multi-tiered service) using multiple management solutions increases both the complexity of managing the data center as well as the data center's operating costs.
To address these issues, IT managers turn to orchestration / integrated management systems such as VMware's vCenter Orchestrator or Microsoft's System Center solutions to help them achieve end-to-end management of mission-critical applications and IT services, and create work flows which can provision a new service at a click of a button. Implementing such systems creates a new virtual data center eco-system, in which all data center resources (physical and virtual) are managed and provisioned via a single view, allowing IT managers to become more productive and efficient.

Integrating Radware VADI into the Virtual Data Center with vDirect Plug-In
Radware's vDirect™ plug-in is the industry's first ADC management orchestration plug-in, designed specifically for virtual data centers. It provides all the building blocks, and management interfaces required for an Orchestration System to provision, decommission, configure and monitor Radware's Virtual Application Delivery Infrastructure (VADI) vADCs and computing resources within a virtual data center.
This integration allows all of Radware's vADCs to be centrally managed and to take part in virtual data center day-to-day operations and workflow automation, thus unleashing the full agility of complete application services and end-to-end service creation.
Fit Any Data Center and Virtual Infrastructure Size
Radware's vDirect plug-in provides automation and management benefits for any virtualization infrastructure:
- SMBs using basic automatic work flows such as on demand virtual machine (VM) resources allocation
- Large enterprises and cloud services providers implementing fully automated service provisioning from VMs and storage to ADCs
Full Business Agility and Resource Elasticity
Radware's vDirect plug-in improves business agility by ensuring the application delivery layer is constantly aligned with the changes in the virtual infrastructure, whether it requires provisioning/decommissioning a vADC instances as part of end-to-end service creation; or automatically adding/removing computing resources to hosted applications while aligning the vADC configuration with the changes.
Drives IT efficiency Via Workflow Automation
Radware's vDirect plug-in integrates Radware's ADC into the virtual data center workflow automation, driving greater levels of IT efficiency and extracting more value from Radware's ADC solution.
