Avi Networks Brings Elastic Application Delivery to VMware Cloud on AWSNovember 28, 2017
Avi Networks, the leader in next-generation elastic application delivery services, today announced that the Avi Vantage Platform is natively available to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS. Launched today with immediate availability, Avi for VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-class software-defined data center (SDDC) software and dedicated, elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from AWS to give organizations a consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud. Avi Vantage delivers one-click load balancer provisioning, simplified troubleshooting, consistent multi-cloud architecture, and cost savings of more than 50 percent to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS.
Enterprises are adopting cloud infrastructure as a natural extension to their data centers to quickly add capacity, perform on-demand scaling, and reduce costs. Unlike hardware appliance load balancers that are manual, inelastic, and resource-intensive, Avi Networks provides an elastic load balancer with centralized control, integrated visibility, and built-in automation that autoscales with applications across any environment. The platform provides a consistent set of services – elastic load balancing (L4-L7), global server load balancing, DNS services, traffic encryption and security, and real-time application performance analytics – across both on-premises data centers and cloud. These services help businesses meet their digital transformation goals by enabling agility, improving end-user experience, and reducing costs.
"Avi Networks is excited to partner with VMware to offer elastic load balancing services for customers adopting VMware Cloud for AWS," said Guru Chahal, vice president, products, at Avi Networks. "The partnership enables our joint customers to take advantage of consistent application delivery architecture both on-premises or in the cloud. The solution is helping enterprises accelerate cloud adoption and become more agile."
VMware Cloud on AWS technology partners enable customers to deploy the same proven solutions seamlessly, in both the public and private cloud. VMware simplifies the certification and deployment of partners’ solutions by eliminating the need for partners to refactor solutions for VMware Cloud on AWS. If a partner solution works on-premises in a VMware vSphere environment, it will also work in VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware technology partners complement and enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS services capabilities and enable customers to realize new capabilities.
"VMware Cloud on AWS provides customers a seamlessly integrated hybrid cloud offering that gives customers the SDDC experience from the leader in private cloud, running on the leading public cloud provider, AWS," said Mark Lohmeyer, vice president and general manager, Cloud Platform Business Unit, VMware. "Solutions such as Avi Vantage Platform enable IT teams to reduce cost, increase efficiency, and create operational consistency across cloud environments. We’re excited to work with partners such as Avi Networks to enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS capabilities and empower customers with flexibility and choice in solutions that can drive business value."
