Thunder® Containers Solutions Enhance Application Performance and
Security for Multi-cloud Environments
SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A10
Networks (NYSE: ATEN) has announced a cloud-ready, light-weight set
of container-based solutions to provide secure application services.
They offer the industry’s highest performing container solutions with up
to 200 Gbps of throughput for A10 Networks’ Thunder Application Delivery
Controller (ADC), Carrier-Grade Networking (CGN), and Convergent
Firewall (CFW) solutions. The addition of Thunder Containers extends the
company’s multi-cloud portfolio and increases the performance, security
and availability of applications, enabling customers to confidently run
their critical workloads in multi-cloud environments at hyperscale.
Customers can meet the increased traffic demands, while maintaining
predictable service levels when deploying applications in multiple
geographic locations and across public and private clouds.
Enterprises today are leveraging almost five clouds1 for
their application infrastructure. Multiple disparate environments to
manage, on top of inherent application complexity, make deploying
applications more complex. Organizations need efficient, agile and
high-performance solutions that also provide centralized management and
analytics across the entire application infrastructure.
Agile, Cloud-Native Application Infrastructures
A10 Networks Thunder Containers-based solutions can help solve many
issues faced by organizations today. The addition of a container-based
solution to the A10 Networks’ portfolio helps support a mix of
application architectures, from traditional monolithic to distributed
microservices, with the same code, the same management all-inclusive API
and the same feature-set to help organizations combine new and legacy
services for more agile infrastructures. In addition, it can eliminate
the struggle between NetOps/SecOps and DevOps with unified and
consistent application, feature-set and policy control across
traditional data center and multi-cloud environments.
“With the new Thunder Containers, we are delivering to the market the
highest performance load balancing, firewall and carrier-grade NAT
(CGNAT) solutions for a very complex multi-cloud world. We are extending
our portfolio across traditional, virtual and microservices form
factors, giving customers a unified solution to ensure agile and
scalable infrastructures. And seamless integration with A10 Harmony®
Controller gives customers visibility and centralized management for
consistent operations and security across multi-cloud environments,”
said Raj Jalan, CTO of A10 Networks.
Thunder Containers is also supported with Kubernetes. The highly
portable solution is supported on standard Intel x86 servers and can be
deployed across the largest cloud providers, including Amazon Web
Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), as
well as private data centers, allowing businesses to benefit from
agility, flexibility and security. Combined with the unique FlexPool®
licensing model, customers can aggregate capacity for flexible
allocation and redistribution of resources for applications running in
Thunder for Containers will be available in Q3, 2019.
