Ensure Optimal Data eCenter Consolidation & Virtualization
The main benefits of data center virtualization are infrastructure consolidation, cost savings and greater business agility. The first step in data center consolidation is server and storage consolidation, utilizing virtualization technologies.
Similar to server consolidation, ADC consolidation provides the same benefits of cost savings and greater business agility. By effectively consolidating the application delivery infrastructure, IT organizations can significantly reduce the amount of application delivery hardware; lower its footprint in the data center and reduce annual maintenance costs. However, successful ADC consolidation must guarantee privacy and failure isolation of the consolidated ADC devices. It must also guarantee performance predictability of all consolidated ADC services, and support pre-consolidation ADC topologies to ease the consolidation process.
Dynamic Data Centers and Application Delivery Solutions
Data center virtualization creates more dynamic data centers with frequent configuration changes and 'moving parts' - such as virtual machines, applications, and the network and storage resources. New instances of virtual machines are provisioned in minutes and new services are deployed in fraction of the time compared to non-virtualized data centers. The ADC cannot 'stay behind' and must provide the same level of agility as all other virtual elements.
To meet the demanding challenges of successful ADC consolidation and virtualization, Radware offers ADC-VX - an ADC consolidation and virtualization platform based on a specialized ADC hypervisor. ADC-VX is built on a unique architecture that virtualizes the resources of Radware ADC platform including CPU, memory, network and acceleration resources. This specialized hypervisor runs virtual ADC instances (vADCs) where each vADC delivers full ADC functionality. Each vADC contains a complete and separated environment of resources, OS, configurations and management. ADC-VX enables organizations to successfully consolidate and virtualize ADC hardware devices without compromising resiliency or performance predictability of ADC services.
