A10 Networks™, the technology leader in Application Networking, today announced that its SoftAX virtual appliance is now available on the Amazon EC2 and VPC platforms for Web Services as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI). As part of A10’s AX Series family, SoftAX is a software-based Application Delivery Controller (ADC) with advanced Layer 4-7 load balancing, application acceleration and security features. SoftAX combined with the AWS platforms enables customers to rapidly scale and optimize Cloud environments, increasing performance on demand.
Lee Chen, Founder and CEO for A10 Networks, said, “We are seeing an increased demand from customers and prospects to offer a version of our popular SoftAX virtual appliance on Amazon EC2 and VPC to ensure fast, secure and flexible Cloud deployments. SoftAX for AWS makes our advanced AX Series feature set available to a wider audience, ensuring customers do not have to compromise on functionality to deploy to the Cloud.”
During the course of development, two distinct customer types emerged. The first are A10 customers who require the same level of AX Series functionality and support as in their own managed data centers, and now also within the Amazon Cloud. An example is one of the largest cable providers in North America who recently moved a production system to VPC with Application Delivery responsibilities handled by the SoftAX for AWS. This trend is similar to SoftAX deployments outside of AWS, as organizations move to leverage the most appropriate platform for specific projects.
Secondly, the arrival of the SoftAX for AWS ensures customers who solely rely on EC2 or VPC now have the choice to use an advanced ADC with functionality not available in freeware or basic load balancers. For example, A10’s advanced ADC functionality includes aFleX traffic control with deep packet inspection, aXAPI for customized management, advanced optimization techniques, advanced health –monitoring, and more.
SoftAX for AWS AMI can be selected and rapidly installed in under 10 minutes to accelerate project deployment times, without sacrificing the advanced ADC features and functionality that are required and available in hardware appliances. SoftAX deployments have proven effective as standalone deployments in addition to complimenting existing AX Series hardware and software deployments as part of overall Cloud strategies. SoftAX on AWS delivers another platform for A10 to extend its AX Series virtualization options and complement its aCloud ecosystem for Cloud Providers. SoftAX also is available on VMware ESXi, Citrix Xen and KVM.
“Enterprise strategy has expanded to Cloud Providers and their platforms. To be successful in Cloud deployments, enterprises need advanced ADCs to ensure that they maintain a competitive edge,” said Dr. Jim Metzler of Ashton Metzler & Associates and author of 2012 Cloud Networking Report. “Options such as A10’s SoftAX on AWS, and aCloud Ecosystem available for Cloud Providers, ensure functionality does not have to be compromised, or lost, when leveraging the compute power of leading Cloud Service Providers.”
SoftAX for AWS is currently EA (early availability), with general availability in January 2013. Further pay-per-use options will be available in Q1 2013.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
