In today’s VMware-based virtualized data center environments, IT teams lack agile application networking services that match their automation and self-service goals and face increased complexity when workloads span both on-premises and cloud environments. Traditional load balancers or Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) do not provide application insights, which makes the troubleshooting of application problems slow and complex. Furthermore, without integration with VMware vCenter, both appliance-based ADCs as well as virtual ADCs are complex to deploy and manage, requiring manual virtual machine setup and networking configuration. The operational complexity and lack of visibility are significantly driving up operational costs for IT teams.
Maximize Application Performance and Operations
with Avi Vantage and VMware Integration
Avi Networks’ native VMware vCenter integration enables enterprises to automate complex configuration tasks, enabling rapid deployment of application delivery and analytics services.
The Avi Vantage Platform provides comprehensive smart load balancing, application security, and application acceleration features, as well as user-to-app visibility and real-time analytics. The platform provides as distributed architecture consisting of a central Avi Controller managing a distributed fabric of software load balancers (Avi Service Engines)
Avi Vantage can be deployed on bare metal servers or virtual machines (VM) on commodity x86 servers and integrates seamlessly with VMware vCenter to automate service provisioning and placement, thereby eliminating human errors. This avoids long change-management cycles leading to reduced operational complexity and lowers costs up to 50 percent.
Benefits of Avi Vantage and VMware Load Balancing
Real-time Pulse on Application Health and User Experience
Rapid Triaging of Business-Critical Issues
Avi Networks’ integrated analytics solution allows IT teams to perform rapid top-down troubleshooting with log analytics and a built-in anomaly detection engine. This means application managers can quickly narrow down the problem to the specific infrastructure component, and use correlation with vCenter logs to root-cause the problem.
Hybrid-Cloud VMware Load Balancing
Avi Networks’ ADC presents a single point of control and a common, consistent application delivery environment (features, configuration, visibility, and control) across all applications in every private data center and public cloud location, including VMware vCloud Air and Amazon AWS.
VMware vSphere Integration
- Unified and operationally consistent hybrid cloud experience across VMware vSphere based private clouds and VMware vCloud Air on AWS.
- Workload portability and flexible consumption options with single support owner and dramatically reduced total cost of ownership.
- Familiar management tools eliminate the need to retrain staff.
- Lays the foundation for integration of third-party tools from leading ecosystem partners.
