Radware’s VADI focuses on bringing full agility and efficiency of virtualization to application delivery solutions. It is an architecture which transforms computing resources, as well as application delivery and virtualization services into one integrated, agile and scalable Application Delivery Virtualization Infrastructure. Customers using VMware-based server virtualization will benefit from using Alteon VA and vDirect, experiencing maximum agility and IT efficiency.
Alteon VA: SoftADC solution
Radware’s Alteon VA (Virtual Appliance) is Radware software ADC solution. Essentially, it is a virtual appliance ADC running on a VMware server virtualization infrastructure providing identical functionality to Alteon physical ADC devices: local and global server load balancing, Layer 7 capabilities and application acceleration. It is running the same ADC instance similar to the other VADI form factors – the dedicated ADC and the consolidated ADC-VX.
Radware’s Alteon VA is designed to provide maximum ADC agility for cloud providers and hosting providers, carriers virtual data centers of large enterprises and SMBs using server virtualization and, while taking advantage of the virtual infrastructure dynamic of provisioning, decommissioning and business agility. Additionally, Alteon VA is offered with capacity licenses in line with Radware’s OnDemand approach, thus, eliminating over-spending at the onset, allowing customers to pay only for the capacity they require as well as appropriate for testing and staging environments.
vDirect: Orchestrator Plug-in
Radware’s vDirect is a first-to-market ADC management orchestration plug-in, designed specifically for virtual data centers. It provides all of the building blocks and management interfaces required for the VMware Orchestration System to provision, decommission, configure and monitor Radware’s VADI vADCs and computing resources (ADC-VX, Alteon VA and dedicated ADC) within a virtual data center.
Fully integrated with VMware vCenter and vCenter Orchestrator, it provides automation and management benefits for any customer using VMware virtualization infrastructure – from SMBs using basic automatic work flows such as on demand VM resources allocation through large enterprises implementing fully automated service provisioning from VMs and storage to ADCs.
vDirect provides business agility by ensuring that the application delivery layer is constantly aligned with the changes in the virtual infrastructure, whether it requires provisioning/decommissioning vADC instances as part of end-to-end service creation; or automatically adding/removing computing resources to hosted applications while aligning the vADC configuration with the changes.
When integrated with vDirect in the data center, Alteon VA unleashes the full agility of application delivery services and drives workflow automation and a greater level of efficiency in the virtualized data center. For example, it is the first solution which enables companies to completely automate all of their data center operations including the ADC and drive business agility while supporting the cloud model.
