• Cisco Technology Partnership

  • Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) in the data center is a holistic architecture with centralized automation and policy-driven application profiles. ACI delivers software flexibility with the scalability of hardware performance.

    Radware's Alteon and DefensePro integrate with Cisco ACI fabric for automated tenant-based application delivery and security services. The automated service insertion is controlled by Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC).

    Integration Benefits

    Best of breed application delivery and DoS protection services - to maintain application service SLA eliminating the 'noisy neighbor' impact

    • Alteon NG application delivery controller (ADC) is the only load balancer that guarantees application SLA for all Web, cloud and mobile applications.
    • DefensePro offers most accurate real-time DoS/DDoS attacks detection and mitigation, without blocking legitimate user traffic.

    Fully integrated ADC and DoS protection services with Cisco ACI

    • Radware's 'device packages' for Cisco ACI enable inserting ADC and DoS protection services per application and/or per network tenant
    • Cisco APIC automates the service insertion process while acting as a central point of policy control

    Increase data center agility without compromising application SLA

    • Applications can move, scale-up or scale-out while retaining the associated services without any location specific constraints. Application policies can be optimized to best address the changing SLA requirements of applications as ACI utilizes Radware application delivery and security services anywhere throughout the network
    • Benefit from deploying Cisco ACI as a dynamic and automated datacenter infrastructure while continuously delivering applications without any adverse application SLA impact
