ADC & WAN ACCELERATION

Application Delivery Controllers

You want to deliver applications with the best economics, performance, security and reliability.

Application Delivery Controllers (ADC’s) — evolved from “load balancers” — have become a critical part of delivering Enterprise (SAP, Oracle, MSFT, etc.) and Internet (SaaS, E-Commerce, M2M, etc.) applications. The demands for 24x7x365 availability, simplified remote access, faster response times, mobility, application level security and increased visibility have made ADC’s an essential part of service delivery. The ADC is an application fluent networking solution that enhances performance and can take corrective action to avoid application and infrastructure faults impacting end-users.

Consolidation and Network Virtualization

Minimize your datacenter footprint, support contracts, power consumption, operational complexity and attack perimeter with the adoption of an ADC. Leverage the converged layer 4-7 capabilities of an ADC and the Software Defined Networking (SDN) platform of the leading ADCs to eliminate point products that add latency, complexity and costs.

ADC’s in the Enterprise: The demands for 24x7x365 availability, simplified remote access, faster response times, mobility, application level security and increased visibility have made ADC’s an essential part of service delivery within Enterprises… Large and Small. As applications become more virtualized and deployed across multiple data centers and in the cloud, a software or virtual ADC becomes an indispensable part of the application architecture. Your datacenter footprint, support contracts, power draw, operational complexity and attack perimeter can all be minimized with the adoption of an ADC.

ADC’s for Internet ApplicationsAny custom built application, whether a Mobile, SaaS, E-commerce, or M2M can benefit from the performance, security, availability and scalability capabilities of an ADC. Software or virtual ADCs help deliver excellent service levels consistently even when application traffic fluctuates. An ADC speeds innovation and reduces operational costs. Getting the most out of the ADC requires integration with your development and deployment process.

WAN Acceleration

WAN optimization is a collection of techniques for increasing data-transfer efficiencies across wide-area networks. In 2008, the WAN optimization market was estimated to be $1 billion and it will grow to $4.4 billion by 2014 according to Gartner.

The most common measures of TCP data-transfer efficiencies (i.e., optimization) are throughput, bandwidth requirements, latency, protocol optimization, and congestion, as manifested in dropped packets. In addition, the WAN itself can be classified with regards to the distance between endpoints and the amounts of data transferred. Two common business WAN topologies are Branch to Headquarters and Data Center to Data Center (DC2DC). In general, "Branch" WAN links are closer, use less bandwidth, support more simultaneous connections, support smaller connections and more short-lived connections, and handle a greater variety of protocols. They are used for business applications such as email, content management systems, database application, and Web delivery. In comparison, "DC2DC" WAN links tend to require more bandwidth, are more distant, and involve fewer connections, but those connections are bigger (100Mbit/s to 1Gbit/s flows) and of longer duration. Traffic on a "DC2DC" WAN may include replication, back up, data migration, virtualization, and other Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery BC/DR flows.
