APV application delivery controllers deliver reliability, availability and security to SAP applications using service-oriented architecture
MILPITAS, CA - Oct 13, 2009 - Array Networks Inc., a global leader in secure application delivery, today announced that its APV 6.5 application delivery controllers (ADCs) have achieved SAP certified integration for third-party networking appliances that interoperate with SAP® applications, based on the SAP NetWeaver technology platform. Achieving certification in the network security, reliability and availability category, the APV appliances deliver reliability, availability and SSL encryption for business application access and service-oriented architecture (SOA) environments.
Customers can now rely on Array’s APV family of application delivery controllers for uninterrupted delivery of mission-critical applications to end users. Array’s open architecture simplifies communication between heterogeneous application environments, thereby improving flexibility and business efficiency. Running version 6.5 of ArrayOS™ software, the successful certification testing included scenarios with typical web-based end-user traffic, as well as SOA web-service traffic between SAP applications.
“The application fluency features of our APV application delivery controllers, now have been shown to enhance the availability and security characteristics of SAP applications,” said Sunil Cherian, vice president of product marketing at Array Networks. “Through this certification, we are able to demonstrate application interoperability in complex global application landscapes by leveraging stable, tested and well-performing configurations of the ADC solution integrated with SAP solutions. Thus customers can reduce overall deployment time and reduce total cost of ownership.
The deployment benefits include load distribution of end-user and web-services traffic between servers running SAP solutions via APV’s Layer 4-7 SAP load balancing, reduction in server resource usage through offloading expensive SSL encryption and decryption functions onto APV, and protection of servers from distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks like syn floods, TCP port scans, UDP floods and UDP port scans by using APV’s high-performance access control lists.
Array ADCs deliver all required application delivery functions for SAP certification, such as Layer 4-7 server load balancing, high availability, SSL acceleration and offloading, distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection, connection multiplexing, caching and compression - all in a single, easy-to-manage appliance.
