• Alteon Models and Technical Specifications

  • Radware's Application Delivery Platforms

    Alteon ADC solution delivers a set of physical appliances, virtual appliances and cloud-based form factors, all sharing the same set of functionality and modules, offering the widest throughput range in the industry, from 200Mbps to 225Gbps.

    On top of all other Layer 4-7 application delivery functions, performance optimization and security functionality, the Alteon D-line products deliver enhanced traffic encryption processing performance, which is available both through its optimized software and the latest hardware acceleration cards.

    Alteon virtual appliances and cloud appliances are exactly the same, providing identical functionality as the physical Alteon appliances and industry-leading performance and traffic encryption capacities.

    All Alteon appliances, starting at the entry level, support virtualization with high density virtual ADC instances per device to enable any size organization to benefit from the cost saving associated with virtualization and ADC consolidation.

    The Alteon virtual appliance form factor is also available in a special version for DevOps teams, enabling instant deployment in any development environment and consumption of advanced ADC functionality via out-of-the-box wizards and automation scripts.

  • Intuitive Licensing Packages

    The new Alteon D-line provides three different licensing packages (available on each of its models and throughput levels), to address different deployment scenarios and needs:

    The Deliver Package

    For applications that require high performance ADCs with advanced layer 4-7 ADC functionality.

    The Perform Package

    For deployments requiring performance optimization, advanced application performance monitoring, global server load balancing & link load balancing, and automated/optimized ADC service operation.

    The Secure Package

    For applications that require the most advanced protection (with an embedded WAF module, authentication gateway) and SSL processing from perimeter security devices (with its embedded SSL inspection module).
