200X Faster Page Load for SAP Documents Stops The Crowds In Their Tracks at TechEd

November 26, 2012 — by Meryl Robin2

This post is part one of a three part series in response to the three major challenges related to SAP infrastructure articulated by professionals at TechEd


At the recent SAP TechEd conference in Las Vegas the theme from end-users was the same. From C-level executives and directors to everyday technology professionals, we heard the following concerns voiced again and again:

  • Quality of experience is a huge issue when it comes to managing the latency of my organization’s SAP applications.
  • I need to guarantee business continuity at all times.
  • I need to ensure my SAP Applications are secure.

To be sure, the major challenge derives from the fact that SAP applications serve as mission critical infrastructure for the mainstream business processes that most end users touch throughout their day. SAP applications are designed to provide advanced business functionality to help organizations efficiently meet their business goals. Any SAP deployment counts on network and server infrastructure performance and availability as well as the ability to protect the deployment from malicious network and application attacks. In addition, SAP deployment is also dependent upon the ability to scale and support multiple applications and types of users, and all of this while being cost effective as well.

A Better Way to Deploy Applications in Today’s Data Centers (Part 2)

July 17, 2012 — by Meryl Robin16

As I started discussing in my last post on the topic, a vADC per aApplication and application shaping tools provides the best solution for ADC deployments. This approach guarantees the applications SLA, and provides agile, scalable, cost effective solution with an application-centric approach. A vADC per Application plus the shaping tools enhance the core values of the ADC and provides a better solution.

With a vADC per App, we can guarantee the applications SLA. Resources are reserved and guaranteed per vADC, and applications don’t compete over shared resources, which results in predictable performance of each application. This enables us to scale application resources without impacting other applications.

A Better Way to Deploy Applications in Today’s Data Centers (Part 1)

July 10, 2012 — by Meryl Robin0

Today, organizations need to support all types of end users that access services and applications in the data center. This means longer and more complicated application deployments on the ADC.

To successfully deploy an application on the ADC, one needs a lot of specific knowledge about the application. For example, you need to know what health checks to do, what should be synched to the backup device, acceleration enhancements and more. The applications require a significant testing phase and there are many parameters on the ADC that need to be monitored in the day-to-day operations.

How To Increase Logging Performance & Save $100,000

May 31, 2012 — by Meryl Robin0

As many CISOs out there know too well, web-accessed applications must provide logging to enable anti fraud and business context visibility on application activity. In many cases, those applications must also comply with government regulations. The implication is that an application must log and analyze transactions, preferably in real time.

Mobile World Congress 2012: When Intermingling Smartphones, IP phones, POTS lines and more, how do you maintain consistent quality of service?

February 27, 2012 — by Meryl Robin0

It’s all in the delivery of the applications traversing the network. Visit Radware at the IMA partner booth (Hall 6 – C50)

Remember when you picked up the phone and could count on a dial tone and a clear connection? Voice communication was called a telephone; the service was POTS (plain old telephone service), and we dealt with only one provider — the telephone company that leased you the line and the equipment.
