A10, Cisco combine Thunder ADC with Cisco ACI
Duo partner on solution to ‘amplify data centre output’
A10 Networks has teamed up with Cisco to integrate A10 Thunder Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) fabric.
The collaboration is aimed at offering L4-L7 application networking services to enable enterprises to "amplify their data centre output" through automatic provisioning of application delivery and security services.
A10 further promised "a significant increase in both allocation speed and business agility, all at a reduced cost".
"Our vision to deliver on-demand, policy-based mechanisms for dynamic L4-L7 services in a cloud environment closely aligns with the streamlined application delivery cycles of the Cisco ACI common policy framework," said Raj Jalan, chief technology officer, A10 Networks. "By combining A10 Thunder ADC and Cisco ACI solutions, we are able to provide enterprises with rich application delivery and security capabilities in a shared infrastructure."
"Rapidly evolving application paradigms and associated infrastructures require the seamless integration of application network services into today's data centre fabrics," said Soni Jiandani, senior vice president, Marketing, Cisco. "The integration of Cisco ACI with the combined performance of A10 Networks' Thunder ADCs and ACOS operating system programmatic interfaces makes this scale and agility a reality."
