Increase your availability, accelerate application performance and reduce the time to deploy new applications with Alteon VA. A fully-functional Application Delivery Controller (ADC) solution packaged as a virtual appliance designed for IBM PureSystems running on server virtualization infrastructure
Radware's Alteon VA for IBM Expert Integrated Systems allows businesses to further standardize their application deployment and add Application Delivery Controller (ADC) services over the same IBM systems used for the other application components. The Alteon VA™ is a fully-functional ADC solution which provides an application-aware approach to deploying and managing applications. It allows the application full availability, maximum performance and complete security while extracting more value from IT investments in IBM. Radware’s Alteon VA is packaged as a virtual appliance running on various server virtualization infrastructure such as VMware ESX/ESXi, KVM, OpenXen, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) and others. It provides identical functionality to Alteon physical ADC devices including local and global server load balancing, Layer 7 capabilities and application acceleration. Undisrupted availability via local and global server load balancing. Radware Alteon VA ensures absolute 24x7 uptime and effective disaster recovery (DR) for local and globally dispersed applications, at all times. By utilizing advanced health checks, traffic redirection, persistency, and content modification capabilities, it guarantees transaction completion through real-time identification and bypassing of any faulty element along the transaction path. In addition, Radware’s global server load balancing (GSLB) service ensures the global availability of all applications.
Business CaseAlteon VA fo IBM Expert Integrated Systems is designed to provide maximum ADC agility for private and public cloud environments as well as for virtualized data centers. While taking advantage of the virtual infrastructure dynamic provisioning, decommissioning and business agility, Alteon VA virtual appliances can be rapidly provisioned and deployed in the data center to perform application delivery services and provide greater business agility. When integrated with orchestration systems in the data center, Alteon VA unleashes the full agility of application delivery services and drives workflow automation and greater level of efficiency in the virtualized data center. For example, a centralized orchestration system that manages all the data center elements can be utilized to rapidly create a new service involving several elements in the data center, including virtual machines, web and application servers, storage, and ADC. Alteon VA provides the orchestration system with the required API to provision and configure the ADC as part of the new service deployment, resulting in high level workflow automation and increased efficiency in the data center. Alteon VA is an ideal solution for cloud Service Providers that offer application delivery services as well as other computing services with very high business agility to their customers. Cloud service providers that are looking to achieve high utilization of their hardware by running multiple services on shared hardware, can leverage Alteon VA to meet their service offering goals. It enables them to offer a SoftADC solution that meets their business objectives.
Business Problem● Gives IT organizations the ability to provide integrated ADC services for their mission critical applications. ● Simplifies deployment and streamlines administration with pre-integrated, pre-optimized IBM systems. ● Ensure non-stop business availability and fastest application response time ● Allows for consistent and simple application deployment methodology for both the application virtual machines and the associated ADC services.
