MAHWAH, N.J., Jan. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The enterprise continues to face challenges when migrating applications to private cloud infrastructures. In addition to basic load balancing, enterprises must also guarantee quality of experience (QoE), ensure performance consistency of network services, isolate business-critical applications and accelerate ADC services. Radware® (Nasdaq:RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced the launch of its newest platform, the Alteon® LBaaS solution for VMware vCloud, which addresses these major challenges for enterprise customers deploying VMware's vCloud Director.

Featured benefits of Alteon LBaaS for VMware vCloud include:

  • Guaranteed capacity of advanced ADC services for critical business applications
  • Accelerated, on-demand provisioning of ADC services, automatically tailored to customer needs
  • Global deployment of applications across multi-site cloud and non-cloud infrastructures without any additional software or hardware
  • Easier migration of non-cloud applications into VMware, extracting additional value from previous investments in VMware vCloud solutions
  • Augmented load balancing capabilities of VMware vShield
  • Improved confidence and adoption of cloud services

"VMware users will want to consider the new Radware Alteon LBaaS solution for VMware vCloud -- an upgraded version of their Application Delivery Controller which runs as a virtual instance under VMware vCloud Director," says Dr. Cliff Grossner, directing analyst of DC, Cloud, and SDN at Infonetics Research. "A key function is its application level SLA assurance, which isolates the resources of each application and can accelerate each application instance, while providing visibility into application performance."

Radware's Alteon LBaaS solution provides application delivery services that are specifically tailored for VMware's vCloud Director, easily integrating with existing vCloud technologies. Additionally, the Alteon LBaaS is the only solution to instantaneously provide tenant-specific, highly available, virtual ADC resources in the VMware cloud framework. Through the Alteon LBaaS solution, cloud infrastructures not only become a viable computing platform for business-critical applications, but the automation of load balancing and application delivery service provisioning also creates a more economical hosting environment.

"Customers demanded a solution that could easily integrate with VMware's cloud technologies, and as a result, Radware developed the Alteon LBaaS for VMware vCloud Director," says Lior Cohen, director of cloud solutions, Radware. "Radware is the only technology to leverage existing VMware capabilities by offering fully automated and fully integrated ADC and load balancing features. We believe the solution will help enterprises rise to the challenge of adopting cloud services more confidently and efficiently."
