Expand Your Cloud Offering with Radware Cloud Solutions
Radware Cloud ADC-as-a-Service Solutions
In recent years Cloud Computing has become a hot topic with an estimated market size of $55 billion in the year 2014.
Today Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) accounts for roughly 50% of the cloud services market, making it a very large market with huge revenue potential from selling services. This acts as a strong incentive for startups, hosting providers, and service providers looking to become Cloud Service Providers (CSP).
This "rush to the cloud" creates a competitive pressure between the various new CSPs, resulting in reduced prices in the standard cloud based offerings, such as computing and storage, and increased need for service differentiation, innovation, and premium services (e.g. ADC-as-a-Service, DR-as-a-Service, etc), to attract new customers.
Radware offers a wide range of Cloud virtual ADC instances (vADCs) supporting the various levels of service offered by the CSP. This gives the CSP full control and flexibility in choosing which Cloud vADC offering to provide its customers, how much resources to allocate for it, and how much to charge for it.
Radware's Cloud vADC offering is based on Radware's Virtual Application Delivery Infrastructure (VADI™). Radware VADI creates an application delivery infrastructure tailored for cloud ADC requirements. By utilizing Radware VADI, CSPs can offer a variety of Cloud vADCs ranging from low SLA ADC, to high SLA ADCs, each with its own throughput license and ADC features.
Radware Cloud vADCs are fully integrated into the cloud data center's ecosystem, management tools, and self service portals, via Radware's vDirect™ SDK and plug-in. vDirect provides out-of-the-box operational tools and management interfaces required for a cloud management system to provision, manage, and monitor Radware Cloud vADCs.
Utilizing Radware's high density Cloud ADC solutions (up to 480 vADCs per 80Gbps) CSPs can provide each hosted customer with a dedicated Cloud vADC, while still maintaining a cost-effective ADC service, and fully accommodating the CSP's business and economy models.
The business benefits of using Radware's Cloud ADC-as-a-Service solutions are as follows:
