The Only Private Cloud-Ready ADC
One of the top priorities of CIOs is to adopt cloud computing technologies in their organization, mainly to boost business agility. Radware Virtual Application Delivery Infrastructure (VADI™) is designed to help businesses meet application delivery challenges in the cloud environment.
It is clear that the existing ADC models cannot fit into Cloud environments, since they are not mobile enough, cannot be provisioned fast enough and do not provide the agility required for Cloud. In a private cloud data center, IT organizations are trying to offer customers private, isolated environments while using a shared infrastructure. In order to achieve this, private clouds are utilizing virtualization technologies to create virtual application silos, i.e. private, isolated environment that includes all the network and application layers that are required to serve an application. The ADC is a critical component in those virtual application silos, and in ensuring the application availability and performance.
Radware’s VADI provides virtual application delivery instances (vADCs) that can fit into the virtual application silos. Since vADCs can run on top of Radware’s ADC-VX, or as a virtual appliance on general server virtualization infrastructure, they preserve the application privacy and isolated environment while guaranteeing the application SLA. Additionally, vADCs provide unmatched agility and mobility to the virtualized application silos, improving service rollout times and new customer adoption.
To meet the high agility and automation requirements of the private cloud data center, Radware developed its vDirect™ plug-in. vDirect provides seamless integration of the ADC into the cloud eco-system enabling auto provisioning and decommissioning capabilities through customer facing portal and data center management systems.
High vADC density on Radware’s platforms and a wide throughput range of the solution (1-80Gbps) allow private clouds to meet their demanding cost model with the lowest cost per vADC in the industry. Additionally, Radware VADI addresses cloud data center capacity and customers growth requirements through multi-tiered on-demand and pay-as-you-grow scalability.
With Radware’s AppShape technology, Radware ADC solutions have reduced 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. It also allows application delivery services to be fully managed and operated from an application-centric view including operational screens, logs and compliance – resulting in simplified and efficient application management in the ADC. Furthermore AppShape’s reporting capabilities help organizations with t capacity planning tasks by providing per application trends analysis and resources utilization reports.
