Alteon is Radware’s next-generation application delivery controller (ADC) and the only load balancer that guarantees application SLA. It provides advanced, end-to-end local and global load balancing capabilities for all Web, cloud and mobile-based applications.
Alteon load balancer combines best-of-breed application delivery capabilities, market-leading SSL performance that supports all of the latest encryption protocols, and advanced services to companies with ongoing application lifecycle management challenges that impact the performance of web applications (such as heavier, more complex web content); mobility, and the migration to the cloud.
Radware's Alteon delivers proactive SLA management via on-going monitoring of real-user transactions, visibility via powerful reporting, and web optimization with FastView.
Alteon is the only application delivery controller in the industry designed specifically to ensure application SLA. Alteon leverages several next-generation services that are not available in other ADCs on the market, bundling FastView Web Performance Optimization (WPO), Application Performance Monitoring (APM), AppWall Web Application Firewall (WAF), Authentication Gateway, Advanced Denial of Service (ADoS), ITM / bandwidth management as well as leading SSL performance and compression capacities. Unlike a standard, legacy load balancer that is based on a best-effort approach, Alteon provides full application SLA assurance by reserving resources per application, enabling the addition of new services without performance penalty, real-user monitoring, best-in-class application acceleration features and innovative security offerings.
Alteon increased availability and performance for all web applications in our data centers."

It provides identical functionality to the Alteon physical ADC and enables enterprises running cloud and virtual server infrastructures to assure high application SLA by leveraging advanced enterprise functionality such as L3-7 load balancing, traffic steering, integrated application performance monitoring (APM) and web performance optimization (WPO).
Learn More about global server load balancing challenges and solutions.
Today's data center presents many challenges - from the classic need
for application availability to increasing performance and security
standards. The rapid advances and rise in importance of data center
virtualization ecosystems requires an advanced Application Delivery
Controller (ADC) with superior load balancing capabilities. In order to
keep customers and potential customers satisfied, your services need to
be available at all times. A load balancer needs to solve multiple
problems for an organization. Complex applications have increased
pressure on networks. Security concerns have grown as more and more
targeted attacks take place on the internet. While virtualization
offers many benefits, it also presents many challenges. Without careful
oversight and management, the availability and performance of
virtualized applications can suffer. In addition, the growing and
constantly changing scale needed to serve users and the evolving
complexity of the applications used increase the strains and stress on
networks - resulting in unwanted downtime, maintenance efforts and
Radware's Alteon load balancer improves application availability
with health monitoring, traffic redirection, global server load
balancing, link high-availability and full redundancy that reduces
service interruptions. With a server load balancer from Radware, you
help protect your business reputation, productivity and profitability.
Featuring full support for IPv6 and functioning as a full IPv4/6
gateway allows Alteon to load balance applications over both networks
with no need for modification. Alteon load balancer helps prevent
downtime, sluggish performance and lost performance and ensures that
your applications are available 24x7.
The efficient Alteon load balancer helps accelerate application
response time and ensure best application SLA while offloading server
processing. Our load balancing solutions free the server CPUs to deal
with additional requests, increasing performance and speed for those
who need it. Alteon is an advanced server load balancer that provides
future-proof capabilities, scalability and performance for your
network. Featuring a complete selection of services that ensure
mission-critical applications in the data center are up and running to
performance standards, Radware Alteon is an indispensable part of any
infrastructure and an important component to business continuity and
disaster recovery efforts.
One important benefit with Alteon is business continuity – ensured
with the application delivery controller that's advanced multi-site
global server load balancing functionality. In order to maintain
business reputation, profitability and productivity it is necessary to
ensure that your applications and sites are available 24x7. During peak
usage times, or during unexpected spikes in use, systems can fail.
Preventing this frustrating experience requires a load balancer that
specializes in disaster recovery and absolute availability.
The load balancing capabilities of Alteon ensures that your
applications are available even at times of peak traffic - fostering
reliability and trust in your network, and optimizing your data center
performance. Alteon manages your resources for reliable uptime and
availability. During times of high demand, Alteon is able to identify―
in real-time― faulty elements and bypass them. From application
failures to server or site failure, Alteon diagnoses the problem and
corrects it to maintain session persistency. Powered by
state-of-the-art, custom-designed hardware platforms that can be scaled
to fit any need, Alteon is a server load balancer that revolutionizes
load balancing and data center performance.
Deployment of application delivery services requires deep
understanding of the application and takes weeks of staff work to
configure, optimize and test the application. To accelerate and
optimize the application delivery services, Radware offers AppShape™.
AppShape technology reduces deployment time of application delivery
services by 86%, while guaranteeing maximum value for each business
critical application in terms of availability, performance and
AppShape offers configuration templates and wizards for leading
business applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint,
Microsoft Lync, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle 10g, PeopleSoft, SAP
ERP and more.
AppShape helps users setup and configure all the required ADC
options in a user friendly format, including application server
information, specific application health checks and redundancy
Radware's FastView is a web performance optimization (WPO) solution
that enables faster websites and web-based applications. It transforms
front-end optimization (FEO) from a lengthy and complex process to an
automated function performed in real time, accelerating web application
response time out-of-the-box.
And since we believe that acceleration is an essential component of
a next generation application delivery controller (ADC), FastView
integrates into our Alteon ADC.
Radware's Attack Mitigation System (AMS) is a real-time network and
application security solution that protects the application
infrastructure against network and application downtime, application
vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, information theft, web
service attacks and web defacement. AMS is a set of patented
technologies for the most advanced internet-borne cyber-attacks. It
extends the "network" of attack detection and mitigation capabilities
beyond the data center for:
AMS contains these key components:
If you're interested in cost savings through consolidation and
virtualization, ADC-VX deserves your undivided attention.
Radware's ADC-VX is ideal for large enterprises, hosting and service
providers as well as cloud providers that want to significantly reduce
costs by consolidating multiple dedicated application delivery
controller devices into a single consolidated application delivery
controller device. It is designed from the ground up to enable
consolidation of ADC hardware devices without compromising resiliency
or performance predictability of application delivery controller
services. This results in significant savings of hardware costs and
ADC-VX is the industry's first application delivery controller (ADC)
hypervisor that runs multiple virtual ADC instances on a dedicated
application delivery controller hardware. This specialized hypervisor
runs fully functional virtual application delivery controller instances
each of which delivers ADC functionality just like a dedicated physical
