Radware, a leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced that P&T Luxembourg, the leading postal and telecommunications services operator in Luxembourg, has selected Radware’s new ADC-VX™, the industry’s first Application Delivery Controller (ADC) hypervisor to provide the agility and scalability features that are needed to cost-effectively build and support private and public cloud services.
With a growing range of postal, electronic banking, and telecommunications services, P&T Luxembourg was in need of an ADC virtualization solution to help meet its overarching goal of expanding its offerings and becoming a Cloud Service Provider (CSP). They preferred to find a single, cost-effective solution that provided clear segmentation and isolation between customers, while also providing the type of agility that was needed to efficiently manage the changing needs of the data center. While existing customers would benefit from having these types of cloud consolidation services in place, these features would allow P&T Luxembourg to attract new customers, including SMBs and large enterprises.
P&T Luxembourg selected Radware’s ADC-VX solution for its unique ability to support private and public cloud environments, while also providing significant cost savings through the use of seamless consolidation with existing ADC hardware devices. With a design that provides fault isolation, network isolation and management isolation between neighboring virtual ADC instances, ADC-VX eliminates the risks involved with consolidation and physical to virtual (P2V) migration. For P&T Luxembourg, this meant being able to segment individual cloud environments for each customer, along with the ability to grow without a forklift upgrade in the future. The Company would also be able to manage different services in both production and testing environments, and experience the same resiliency levels normally offered by separate, physical ADCs.
“No other cloud solution on the market even came close to providing the features and competitive pricing that Radware offered,” said Ourdane Mohamed, Head of Server and Security at P&T Luxembourg. “We knew that Radware was ahead of the game in terms of ADC virtualization solution and has a track record of excellent service and an extensive portfolio of solutions. Once we learned more about ADC-VX, there was never a question over which vendor to choose.”
Powered by Radware's OnDemand Switch® platform, ADC-VX delivers performance superiority that ensures the best Quality of Experience (QoE) possible for P&T Luxembourg’s customers and eliminates concerns of slow response times and network downtime. ADC-VX also provides the Company with performance predictability through a resource reservation mechanism to meet all service level agreements (SLA). Complete with instant ADC provisioning for maximum business agility and faster time to market, this solution was ideal for P&T Luxembourg’s ambition of launching the ideal cloud strategy.
“Being able to provide a customer like P&T Luxembourg with a new cloud solution that is going to help them expand their virtualization capabilities is a truly satisfying accomplishment,” said Dirk Aertgeerts, Sales Manager Belgium and Luxembourg, Radware. “Enterprises of all sizes are increasingly looking for ways to leverage the cloud, and Radware’s ability to meet this market need by offering smart virtualization strategies is a strength that truly sets us apart from the competition.”
ADC-VX is a key component of Radware’s Virtual Application Delivery Infrastructure – (VADI™) strategy, which was designed to focus on bringing efficiency of virtualization to application delivery solutions. VADI is an architecture that transforms computing resources, as well as application delivery and virtualization services into one integrated, agile and scalable Application Delivery Virtualization Infrastructure.
