NASDAQ: RDWR
Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced that its Alteon Virtual Appliance (Alteon VA™) and vDirect™ plug-in are now certified for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3, which is available today. Radware is the first provider of application delivery solutions that fully integrates with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
Alteon VA™ for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization is a fully functional ADC solution packaged as a virtual appliance running on the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor, powered by KVM, and is fully certified for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environments. It provides an application-aware approach to deploying and managing applications that is designed to support an application’s SLA and provide full availability, maximum performance and security and enables enterprises to extract more value from IT investments in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environments. In addition, it offers health monitoring to automatically bypass failed resources along the transaction path, local and Global Server Load Balancing to route requests to the most available server, and application acceleration such as SSL acceleration, caching and compression for faster application response time.
vDirect for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, the industry’s first ADC management plug-in that integrates with the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization API, streamlines workflows related to the provisioning and maintenance of Alteon VA in the Red Hat virtualized environment. By automatically synchronizing with the dynamic Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization virtual machine changes -- such as VM provisioning, decommissioning and migration -- vDirect offers alignment of Alteon VA configuration with the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environment to simplify operations and reduce risk and costs.
“Mission-critical applications and services running in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environments must be highly available and deliver excellent performance,” said Navin Thadani, senior director, Virtualization Business at Red Hat. “With the launch of Radware’s ADC solution in connection with our release of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3, our customers can not only address these challenges, but also deploy and manage their mission-critical applications together with an advanced ADC service on one consistent virtualization environment.”
