Radware®, a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced it has integrated Radware's Alteon VA™ with VMware vFabric™ Application Director™, a hybrid cloud provisioning solution. The joint solution is featured in the beta release of VMware Cloud Applications Management Marketplace and is validated to run on private, public and hybrid VMware vCloud® environments.
Radware's Alteon VA is integrated with VMware's vFabric Application Director, designed to simplify the creation of application deployment topologies across hybrid cloud services through the use of application deployment blueprints. Radware customers will be able to deploy their Radware Alteon VA in any VMware vCloud-powered private, public and hybrid clouds.
Radware also announced it has partnered with enterprise cloud computing provider Bluelock to offer Radware's Alteon VA service to Bluelock's end-user customers as a virtual ADC switch for customers using vFabric Application Director. Radware's Alteon VA blueprint was developed using a hosted instance of vFabric Application Director on Bluelock's cloud infrastructure working closely with the product team.
By leveraging VMware vFabric Application Director, customers can easily select and automatically provision Radware's Alteon VA as the ADC component for their virtual data centers and applications. Using a drag-and-drop canvas, application architects can construct an application blueprint for deployment that can be used on almost any type of cloud. With Radware's Alteon VA pulled directly from Bluelock and other standardized cloud libraries, and an extensible catalog of ready-to-use application infrastructure components and scripts, it takes just minutes to compose an application that can be fronted and accelerated by Radware's Alteon VA in the cloud.
"Working with leading-edge cloud infrastructure and management companies like VMware, and leading cloud hosting partners like Bluelock, is proof that Radware understands what enterprises, carriers and other businesses need in cloud-enabled ADC and virtualization solutions," said Gilad Zlotkin, Vice President, Virtualization and Management Products, Radware. "Moreover, being certified for VMware vCloud, vCloud Director®, and now integrated with vFabric Application Director™, Radware is uniquely positioned to deliver the widest range of ADC and virtualization solutions to support those cloud and hosting providers especially those committed to VMware's data center technology."
Bluelock, a leading VMware vCloud data center service provider, facilitates a true hybrid cloud approach for IT departments and business units seeking choice, platform compatibility, and a proven cloud partner that focuses on each customer's unique infrastructure needs. It has a strong commitment to VMware and traditionally has been an early adopter of VMware vCloud technology.
