Radware Alteon Virtual Appliance
About Alteon Virtual Appliance
Alteon VA features a protocol and API-agnostic control-plane plugin that allows seamless interoperation with virtually any policy enforced ecosystem, including HSS, PCRFs, RADIUS, and Diameter based APIs. This facilitates the easy rollout of new network applications, and provides automated user-aware and/or network-aware real-time policy enforcement.
Radware’s Alteon Virtual Appliance (VA) for NFV environments is the first high-capacity virtualized ADC. Alteon VA performs all of the same traffic classification, control, and forwarding as Radware’s hardware ADC appliances. Alteon VA runs on commercial off the shelf (COTS) hardware that can be used to support other NFV-based networking tasks as well as online applications. Using COTS servers translates to a lower total cost of ownership, both due to cost and to lower OPEX from common maintenance.
As an active contributor in industry NFV and SDN standardization working groups, Radware has developed a holistic strategy to enable applications provided by carriers, large enterprises, and e-commerce networks to become smarter, more programmable, flexible, and cost-effective. Many of the benefits of Alteon VA are due to integration with NFV and SDN life cycle automation frameworks. Alteon VA is compatible with SDN OpenFlow systems as well as NFV-based infrastructure virtualization and orchestration frameworks such as KVM and OpenStack. This allows Alteon VA instances to be instantiated, provisioned, configured, and decommissioned in the same manner as application components and other virtualized network functions. ADC instances and applications can be created and connected in one step, resulting in simplified deployment, capacity elasticity, and shorter turn-up time.
•Lower TCO– through the use of COTS servers.
•Lower OPEX– virtualized ADC instances are handled by existing NFV/SDN automation tools.
•Scalable – can be scaled through clustering to provide any throughput needed in support of applications.
•Short time-to-market – no need to wait for delivery of physical ADC platforms.
•No vendor lock-in– NFV components that are best for the task at hand can be acquired as needed
