Alteon Virtual Load Balancer & Appliance

What Does the Alteon Virtual Load Balancer Appliance Do?

Whether your application runs in a fully virtualized environment or you need a cost effective development and staging environment, Alteon Virtual Appliance (VA) provides the right load balancing solution for your needs.

Is Your Application Delivery Virtualization Ready?

Virtualization/consolidation projects significantly impact the effective delivery of applications to end users. This video will help you understand if your infrastructure is ready for the unique demands of a virtual load balancer imposed by application delivery virtualization.

Alteon VA is a fully-featured Alteon application delivery controller (ADC), packaged as a virtual load balancer running on virtualized server infrastructure. It is a SoftADC that provides identical functionality to Radware's Alteon physical ADC devices including:

Local and global server virtual load balancing with Layer 7 aware content redirection and modification

Web application firewall (WAF) through the embedded AppWall software module

Application acceleration with the embedded FastView module and HTTP/2 gateway

Real-time monitoring, proactive SLA management and assurance with agent-less Application Performance Monitoring (APM)

Application specific optimized configuration guides and templates with automation and reports through AppShape modules
