Radware®, a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, announced that Blueport Commerce, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) omnichannel solution for the furniture industry has selected the Alteon® NG to help drive online sales and manage its ecommerce platform.
Managing the technology infrastructure of $6.3 Billion in inventory assets of top furniture retailers such as Midwest based Value City Furniture and Canadian retailer Leon’s, Blueport Commerce helps clients increase sales by creating an engaging and modern omnichannel shopping experience. In addition to managing their clients’ technology infrastructure, Blueport Commerce also implemented Alteon® NG to its own online home furnishings portal, Furniture.com.
Looking to improve upon their existing application delivery controller (ADC), Blueport Commerce sought a more robust solution that would allow them to ensure the SLA of applications/services running in multiple environments, and specifically create a virtualized environment a feature that the Boston based organization could not achieve with their current ADC. After a three-month process of consulting with other vendors, Radware’s Alteon NG was selected allowing Blueport Commerce to be more flexible than ever before.
“For us to maintain our agility while keeping our IT infrastructure costs and footprint to a minimum, virtualization was our key focus,” says Fotios Magoufis, Director of IT Operations at Blueport Commerce. “We had a strong desire to effectively separate traffic between all of our environments, implement software changes and test configuration settings without affecting the production environment. With Radware’s Alteon NG, this is all achievable.”
To maintain their agility and minimize infrastructure costs and complexity, Blueport Commerce created multiple vADC instances where each drives a different web application environment. This allowed them to keep separate production, QA and beta environments all on the same physical device. This configuration also allowed them to effectively manage their load balancing, create a “failover” device as backup and allocate more resources on the production vADC.
