A10 Networks has announced its partnership with Blazeclan, a premier cloud consulting firm, and introduced a new strategic solution that offers multi- cloud, multi-service management.
Under the Blazeclan partnership, A10 brings the new controller-based A10 Harmony platform and A10 Lightning – a cloud-native software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform for secure application delivery – to organizations in the region who are looking to take advantage of the inherent agility and scalability of the cloud. As A10 Technology Integration Partner, Blazeclan can now offer A10 Networks Application Delivery Services to customers cross the ASEAN region.
The new developments center on the A10 Harmony Controller, built on microservices and container technologies, offering a multi-tenant, highly scalable controller architecture that incorporates real-time analytics at a per-app level and central management and orchestration of secure application services across hybrid environments – from physical data centers to public, private and hybrid clouds.
The new A10 Harmony Controller and analytics capabilities fundamentally change the way secure application services are delivered, protected, and managed. Because the A10 Harmony application delivery and security the company’s goal to help customers become more secure and agile as they bridge traditional and cloud representing a strategic step in application environments controller uniquely spans traditional data centers and clouds, it is now the industry’s only controller-based platform that can deliver analytics, configuration and orchestration across such hybrid application environments.
At the heart of this solution are advanced, per-application analytics. The controller now collectively integrates analytics for A10’s software and hardware Thunder portfolio and cloud-native A10 Lightning offerings.
The centralized visibility and intelligence derived from per-app analytics across this portfolio greatly increase the efficiency of A10 customers’ operations teams in enhancing end-user experience.
A10’s per-app analytics help improve capacity planning and optimize IT infrastructure for customers with elastic cloud environments, and among other capabilities, help dramatically shorten troubleshooting times and proactively provide alerts on performance or security anomalies.
A10’s analytics capabilities allow customers to effectively manage app workloads across the entire spectrum of modern hybrid deployments and legacy data centers – unlike other vendors, whose answer to the cloud is to one-dimensionally require specific “cloud appliance” products that have been retrofitted to accept a subset of cloud workloads.
The A10 Harmony Controller integration with management and analytics capabilities is available across A10’s portfolio of secure application services, including application load balancing and app delivery, a web application firewall and SSL inspection.
The A10 Harmony Controller is available in two deployment models. The first allows organizations to use it as a SaaS offering managed by A10, making it very simple, quick and cost-effective to consume. The controller is also available as a customer-managed, scalable software solution within a customer’s environment in data centers or clouds, including VMware powered clouds, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.
Key capabilities of the new A10 Harmony Controller include: a cloud management, orchestration and analytics platform for secure application services; optional self-managed, on-premise deployment model, or an A10-managed SaaS model; and per-application analytics across the entire application delivery infrastructure.
The A10 Harmony Controller with Thunder ADC integration, HAProxy load balancer analytics, and native Google Cloud load balancing and Web Application Firewall (WAF) offerings will be available in Q2 2017.
Integration with other A10 services such as SSL inspection, Carrier Grade NAT and Converged Firewall will be available starting in 2H 2017.
