A10 Networks, a technology leader in application networking, today announced the aCloud Services Architecture designed to help Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)data center operators deliver a rich set of application networking and security services to their customers, improving business agility and lowering total cost of ownership. The aCloud Services Architecture includes a range of new products and integrations with 3rd-party software-defined networking (SDN) and cloud platforms that enable dynamic L4-7 security and application services in multi-tena nt cloud data centers.

To meet the needs of public and private IaaS data center providers, the aCloud Services Architecture includes new virtual and hybrid virtual appliance form factors and new licensing options that enable on-demand application delivery and security subscription services, similar to the way other IaaS services are delivered. It also provides feature integration with industry-leading cloud orchestration and SDN platforms, including Amazon’s Web Services (AWS), Cisco Systems ACI, IBM SDN VE, OpenStack, and Microsoft Windows Server Hyper-V Network Virtualization and Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager. These integrations ena ble A10′ s physical and virtual appliances to dynamically and automatically provision L4-7 network services per tenant network flow.

Legacy data center network architectures are typically static, inflexible and manually provisioned, placing them out of synch with emerging cloud data center business models that are characterized by automatically provisioned services, increased business agility, and significantly reduced cost of operations. The aCloud Services Architecture allows operators to deliver rich L4-7 network services within these new data center architectures by delivering key features, including:

  1. High-performance appliances that perform a variety of resource-intensive functions, including encapsulation/decapsulation, SSL (secure sockets layer) offload and DDoS (distributed denial of service) mitigation
  2. Virtualized and hybrid appliances that provide distributed service scale-out down to the host and/or tenant
  3. Pay-as-you-go licensing that allows cloud data center operators to offer a variety of subscription-based L4-7 network services to their customers
  4. SDN and network virtualization platform integrations with leading data center solution providers, includingCisco APIC, IBM SDN-VE, and Microsoft Windows Server Hyper-V Network Virtualization, with planned integration with VMware NSX
