Avi Vantage delivers multi-cloud application services including an enterprise-grade Software Load Balancer, Intelligent Web Application Firewall, and Elastic Service Mesh for container-based microservices applications. Avi does the heavy lifting by intelligently automating application delivery, ensuring applications are available, secure, and responsive to demand.

How Does It Work?

Avi Vantage uses a software-defined scale-out architecture that separates the central control plane (Avi Controller) from the distributed data plane (Avi Service Engine). It offers extensible application delivery services including load balancing, security and service mesh on ONE platform across any environment.

Avi Vantage is based on 100% REST APIs, fully automatable, and seamlessly integrates with the CI/CD pipeline for application delivery. With on-demand autoscaling, Avi Vantage can elastically scale based on application loads. Built-in analytics provide application delivery benefits such as actionable insights based on performance monitoring, logs, and security events in a single dashboard (Avi App Insights) with end-to-end visibility.
