What Does Alteon NG Do?
Alteon NG 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 NG load balancer combines best-of-breed application delivery plus advanced services to companies with key application infrastructure challenges affecting web applications such as heavier, more complex web content; mobility and BYOD; and the migration to the cloud.
What Makes Alteon NG A Better Load Balancer?
Alteon NG is the industry-only application delivery controller built from the ground up to ensure application SLA. Alteon NG innovatively leverages several next-generation services that are not available in any other ADC on the market, bundling FastView Web Performance Optimisation (WPO), Application Performance Monitoring (APM), AppWall Web Application Firewall (WAF), Authentication Gateway, Advanced Denial of Service (ADoS), ITM / bandwidth management as well as maximum SSL and compression capacities. Unlike a standard, legacy load balancer that's based on a best-effort approach, it provides full application SLA assurance through reserving resources per application, allowing adding new services without performance penalty, real-user monitoring, best-in-class application acceleration features and innovative security offering.
Alteon NG load balancer is architecturally designed to ensure application SLA with:
Application SLA Assurance
Complete fault isolation, vADC per application and service, and the ability to scale up or scale out while maintaining performance with ADC-VX, Alteon Virtual Appliance (VA), Alteon VA for NFV and Alteon VA for cloud environment form factors
Application SLA Monitoring
Real-time monitoring, proactive SLA management and assurance with agent-less application performance monitoring (APM)
Web Performance Optimisation
Accelerated web page performance for any end-user device and any browser up to 40% with FastView web performance optimisation
Layered Security Architecture
Protection for applications and infrastructure against cyber-attacks, with accurate attack detection and DoS signaling, in the perimeter or the cloud through attack mitigation systems (AMS)
Advanced Multi-Homing and Enterprise Gateway Capabilities
Guarantee enterprise Web applications service levels and ensure they are connected to the Internet at all times with LinkProof NG module
Application specific optimised configuration guides and configuration templates with automation and reports through AppShape
Alteon NG lets you reduce deployment time of application delivery services by 86% via wizards and configuration templates with AppShape and customisation through AppShape++ scripts (and routing rules).
Alteon Virtual Appliance (VA) is a fully-featured Alteon application switch packaged as a virtual appliance running on server virtualisation infrastructure, providing identical functionality to Alteon physical application delivery controllers for network load balancing. enables enterprises running cloud and virtual server infrastructures to assure high application SLA leveraging advanced enterprise functionality such as L3-7 load balancing, traffic steering, integrated application performance monitoring (APM) and web performance optimisation (WPO).
