Access to Applications Based on a « Driving License » Model

July 18, 2018 — by Thomas Gobet0

More and more countries are modifying their policies with a new “driving license” model.

With a classic license model, drivers can be caught frequently; they just have to pay a huge amount of money to the police each time.

Since this model has lot of limitations, it was changed to a “point-based model.” Either you begin with 0 points (and you increase it based on your “mistakes”) or your points decrease. Regardless of how the model works, you’re still allowed to drive if you have below a certain number of points on your license.

Using SLA Management to Save Time and Improve

December 13, 2017 — by Daniel Lakier0

Today more than ever, the success or failure of our digital enterprise rests on whether our customer has a good user experience. No one wants to use something that is difficult to use or unreliable, and most of us don’t want to use something unless the user experience is consistent. All too often, organizations expend all their energy into making their tool /application look good, be easy to use or making it have great functionality. What they forget is that performance, especially consistent performance, can be just as important. All these things rolled into one are what I call the convenience factors. It’s not a new concept and many brick-and-mortar companies have failed over the years because of this. If we go back a few years, we can see many examples of technology or companies succumbing from an original position of strength because they never took this perceived convenience/quality factor into account. Three examples:

Uber-less Austin virtually full of common themes at Light Reading’s BCE

In the “Silicon Hills” capital of the deep South, the world of technology movers and shakers descended upon Austin’s Convention Center for Light Reading’s Big Communication Event to discuss the latest disruptive technologies ripe to revolutionize the way we communicate.

Meanwhile, in the streets of Austin, a prickly regulation battle forced ultra-hip transportation companies Uber and Lyft to move their businesses out of the metro area. As a result, community engineers rallied around the clock to create a new app, called Ride-Austin, to fill the void – and reportedly in only 2 weeks’ time! This is only fitting in a startup town like Austin, as modern businesses everywhere are confronted with the reality of offering services to consumers in a nimble, automated, intelligent, dynamic, and virtual manner.

Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs): The Last Physical Hurdle to the Software Defined Datacenter (SDDC)

December 21, 2012 — by Ron Meyran1

Effectively a next generation load balancer, enterprises are deploying Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) to front-end their mission critical applications. The enterprise ADC market is mature with well established players and solutions. Yet when moving applications to the cloud – it’s a completely different playground. The business need is to support a new application life cycle—one that allows the business to scale across hybrid cloud environment.

In this post I will explore an application life cycle use case across hybrid cloud, and how to properly deploy an ADC in the cloud to support the application life cycle.

Road-show in APAC: It Was a Hell of a Ride!

December 20, 2012 — by Nir Ilani1

A couple of weeks ago I returned from a business trip to Korea and China where I met with a number of customers and partners from various vertical markets. The most interesting thing about this trip was that these two countries continue to encounter huge increases in their Internet traffic due to steady, on-going online business expansion. The customers I met with included an online payment services company, various leading mobile carriers, a large bank and a cable network operator among others. What I found common to these companies is that almost all of them are considering their next-generation strategy with regards to their data center technologies and operations. And while each customer obviously has a different environment with distinct applications and infrastructures it was clear that they are all keen on delivering one thing – an optimized Web experience.

How Cloud Ready Are You? Download Radware’s Alteon VA Blueprint Directly from the VMWare Cloud Application Marketplace

December 3, 2012 — by Ron Meyran0

Anyone intimately connected to the world of server virtualization and cloud computing is no stranger to the name VMware. From an early stage, Radware and VMware have been strategic partners, delivering comprehensive and cost-effective virtual ADC solutions for enterprises and carriers operating in the cloud. Today, with the release of VMware’s Application Director 5.0, the two companies are offering an integrated virtual ADC solution that helps customers simplify and automate the management of their Software-defined-Datacenters (SDDC). Radware’s Alteon VA with VMware’s provisioning solution VMware vFabric Application Director is now generally available for download on VMware’s Cloud Application Marketplace.

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

November 26, 2012 — by Meryl Robin1

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.

STOP the Finger Pointing: App vs. Network

The challenges of application slowdown: Identify where the slowdown occurs and why. Give your users unmatched QoE and routinely meet the highest level of SLA

We should discuss what the main goal for deploying an ADC is: 95% of the time, it is to enforce increasingly more stringent application SLA’s. To achieve this, we have to consider improving application availability, whether you’re solving local server failure with local server load balancing or fixing global downtime through GSLB with a DR site. It’s also important to improve performance by offloading some of the CPU intensive tasks from the server to the ADC, like SSL, compression, or even smart caching (dynamic caching for even faster response time of the application).

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

July 17, 2012 — by Meryl Robin4

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.
