Array Virtualized Appliances
The Agility of Cloud & Virtualization. The Performance of Dedicated Appliances.
Both service providers and enterprises are moving towards a virtual approach to network functions, to gain agility and operational efficiencies. However, best-effort virtualized servers often fall short when running compute-intensive app delivery functions or attempting to maintain SLAs for business-critical customers and applications.
AVX Series virtualized appliances provide the best of both worlds – the agility of cloud and virtualization with the performance of dedicated appliances. Mix and match different size ADC and SSL VPN virtual appliances and purchase capacity incrementally on a purpose-built platform that delivers guaranteed performance per virtual appliance.
The AVX7600 is a 2RU dual power virtualized appliance with 64Gbps of throughput that hosts up to 16 independent vAPV or vxAG virtual appliance instances and supports mix-and-match, pay-as-you-grow licensing for four virtual appliance size options. Provides dedicated CPU, SSL, memory and I/O for each instance to assure guaranteed performance.
The AVX10650 is a 2RU dual power virtualized appliance with 128Gbps of throughput that hosts up to 32 independent vAPV or vxAG virtual appliance instances and supports mix-and-match, pay-as-you-grow licensing for four virtual appliance size options. Provides dedicated CPU, SSL, memory and I/O for each instance to assure guaranteed performance.
App Delivery Functions
Virtual Application Delivery Controller (ADC)
The vAPV runs as an entry, small, medium or large virtual application delivery controller on Array’s AVX virtualized appliance to flexibly enable on-demand, full-featured load balancing and application delivery with guaranteed performance.
Virtual Secure Access Gateway (SSL VPN)
The vxAG runs an entry, small, medium or large virtual secure access gateway on Array’s AVX virtualized appliance to flexibly enable on-demand, full-featured remote and mobile access with guaranteed performance.
Guaranteed SSL Performance In a Shared Environment
Performing compute-intensive SSL encryption on virtualized servers is inefficient. Array's purpose-built virtualized appliances excel at this crucial network function – shrinking the data center footprint for app delivery by up to 16x versus dedicated ADC appliances and providing the lowest possible cost per SSL transaction per second (TPS).
Public and private clouds require more than just virtualization. Orchestration is essential to gaining the agility and management efficiency that define the cloud. With Array’s eCloud™ API, AVX Series virtualized appliances can integrate with VMware vRealize Orchestrator, Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager and OpenStack Neutron LBaaS, as well as home grown cloud management platforms.
AVX Series virtualized appliances are ideal for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud providers with more demanding customers – and enterprises with business-critical applications and software services – seeking the agility of cloud and virtualization with the performance of dedicated appliances.
