Alteon is the only application delivery controller in the industry designed specifically to ensure application SLA. Alteon leverages several next-generation services that are not available in other ADCs on the market, bundling FastView Web Performance Optimization (WPO), Application Performance Monitoring (APM), AppWall Web Application Firewall (WAF), Authentication Gateway, Advanced Denial of Service (ADoS), ITM / bandwidth management as well as leading SSL performance and compression capacities. Unlike a standard, legacy load balancer that is based on a best-effort approach, Alteon provides full application SLA assurance by reserving resources per application, enabling the addition of new services without performance penalty, real-user monitoring, best-in-class application acceleration features and innovative security offerings.
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 environmentform factors
Web Performance Optimization
Accelerated web page performance for any end-user device and any browser up to 40% with FastView web performance optimization
Application SLA Monitoring
Real-time monitoring, proactive SLA management and assurance with agent-less application performance monitoring (APM)
Layered Security Architecture
Protection for applications and infrastructure against cyber-attacks, with accurate attack detection and DoS signalling, in the perimeter or the cloud via Radware’s Attack Mitigation System (AMS)
Operators Toolbox for Reduced Workloads
Designed for the network operator, the Operators Toolboxreduces the operational workload by up to 90%, throughout the ADC services’ lifecycle
Cost Effective Traffic Encryption Processing
High performance SSL offloading integrated hardware and software engines, with support for the latest encryption standards, ensuring cost effective processing of encrypted traffic for servers and other security devices
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
Complete Layer 4-7 Feature Set
Delivering a complete set of Layer 4-7 services to ensure the availability, performance and security of mission-critical applications in local and cloud data centers
Alteon Virtual Appliance (VA) is a feature rich Alteon application switch packaged as a virtual appliance running on virtualized infrastructure. It provides identical functionality to the Alteon physical ADC and enables enterprises running cloud and virtual server infrastructures to assure high application SLA by leveraging advanced enterprise functionality such as L3-7 load balancing, traffic steering, integrated application performance monitoring (APM) and web performance optimization (WPO).
