Radware provides MAN/WAN high availability solution for BEA WebLogic 9.0

Radware (Nasdaq: RDWR - News), the leading provider of intelligent integrated solutions for ensuring the fast, reliable and secure delivery of networked and Web-enabled applications over IP, has completed interoperability testing of its AppDirector product with BEA's WebLogic Server 9.0, to help enable enterprise customers eliminate downtime across all BEA servers for fault tolerance application continuity.

BEA WebLogic provides enterprises a scalable application delivery solution. WebLogic Application Servers are designed to provide stateful awareness of mission critical applications for superior availability for global enterprises. Using BEA WebLogic clustering technology can improve scalability of an application deployed in a single location. The addition of a hardware based load balancer from Radware can improve performance and fault tolerance through the advantages of offloading the application servers from the task of local server load balancing.

Physically distributed application deployments require special support to help ensure availability and the critical application state information in a disturbed fashion. The joint WebLogic 9.0 and Radware's solution is designed to provide the stateful application distribution as well as the load and client proximity information in a way to provide one of the most scalable, highly available, and fault tolerant solutions on the market today.

"We're pleased to work with Radware to help our mutual customers improve application performance and reliability, and value the contributions Radware has made as a Select partner in the BEA Partner Program," said Larry Aronovitz, Partner Program Director at BEA Systems, Inc. "The BEA Partner Program is designed to offer our partners a continuum of essential technology, marketing, sales, and support resources which can help enable faster time to value. We look forward to a lasting, productive partnership with Radware."

Radware Benefits for BEA Solutions include:

Traffic Redirection
Radware's global load balancing technology is designed to allow clients to be serviced by the application portal which is most "able" to serve content as well as "closest" to them in terms of relative delay and hop count. Radware's global solutions can help ensure that mission critical resources are always available despite disaster, local data center outage, overloaded systems and site specific outages.

Advanced Health Monitoring
Advance Health Monitoring is designed to enable comprehensive monitoring of resources -- from the testing of discrete physical devices including servers, TCP and UDP based applications, database systems and supporting network equipment, through the sampling of multiple devices, to content checks across network layers 4-7 -- checking resource health across the entire transaction path.

Bandwidth Management
Bandwidth management policies are designed to enable the classification of traffic by user, applications, and service pricing models for the configuration and full enforcement of premium services, and differentiating application performance by business requirements, while regulating site-wide bandwidth consumption and costs.

Intrusion Prevention
By continuously monitoring all network traffic at Gigabit speeds, Intrusion Prevention can help detect and prevent attacks in real time, immediately terminating suspicious sessions to help safeguard enterprise operations from hacking.

Denial of Service (DoS) Protection
Coupling multi-gigabit throughput speeds with an advanced sampling algorithm, the DoS protection module is designed to automatically detect abnormal service requests and help to thwart DoS attacks before they undermine network operations for complete security and business continuity. "Enterprises today are driven by the need to ensure optimized, cost- effective and secure applications. After completing interoperability testing, we are pleased to work even more closely with BEA," said Ezra Yosef, Director of Business Development, Radware. "Our combined solution is designed to help empower end users with a solution that can help to ensure 24x7 application availability and security."
