Radware Drives Application Delivery Innovation With First OnDemand Switch Providing Customer-Focused Capabilities

OnDemand Switch

Radware announced its OnDemand Switch, a new hardware platform for Application Delivery Controllers (ADC) that delivers breakthrough performance and superior scalability through an easy-to-upgrade license approach, for additional throughput and services.

Designed with customers in mind, the OnDemand Switch is the first sustainable throughput switch with on-demand scalability allowing end-users to increase throughput levels without the need to swap-out existing IT hardware infrastructures. Instead, higher throughput is enabled through a simple license update, eliminating any associated "disruptive" downtime. This hassle-free operational approach provides the critical flexibility, with enhanced functionality to address all IP application requirements -from on-going operations, maintenance and business growth demands – to network layers 4-7.

According to Cindy Borovick, Vice President, Datacenter Networks, IDC, "With the introduction of the OnDemand Switch, Radware is fulfilling next generation datacenter requirements in application networking," she continued, "Large and mid-range datacenter customers stand to benefit from this alternative, cost-effective way of consuming and implementing capacity at a time when consolidation, virtualization, green IT, and Web 2.0 are driving their agendas."

"Combining exceptional performance with long-term scalability creates a huge value proposition for Radware's line of Application Delivery Controllers," explained Ziv Oren, VP of Technical Operations at 888.com. "Having the opportunity to easily upgrade our throughput capacity is exactly what we need to meet our ever increasing growth and to protect our investments."

Radware's new OnDemand Switch platform bridges the gap between IT infrastructure and business applications for comprehensive control of mission critical operations across the enterprise. Key benefits include:

  • Breakthrough Performance
  • Purpose-built hardware architecture with carrier-grade reliability
  • Delivers between 2.5-to-10 times better performance of existing solutions
  • Application delivery performance leadership at all throughput levels
  • On Demand Throughput and Service Scalability
  • Scale throughput on-demand to meet business growth demands
  • Add additional application services on-demand to meet new application and infrastructure requirements
  • Ready for APSolute application-aware services with "no compromise" on performance: Application Performance Monitoring, Bandwidth Management, Intrusion Prevention, Denial of Service (DoS) Protection
  • Enables Radware's business-smart network, providing transaction assurance and instant action, which enhances the customer experience while driving business efficiency
  • Operational Simplicity and Optimal Investment Protection
  • No "forklift" upgrade required: all project costs associated with testing, staging, reinstalling and debugging an upgraded machine are completely saved
  • Extended product life-time: use the same platform for extended time frame thanks to the breakthrough performance, throughput and service scalability
  • Standard, unified platform at all throughput levels reducing operation and training costs, configuration diversity and spare units
  • "Hassle free" upgrade, no configurations changes are required while upgrading
  • No downtime while upgrading

"Our OnDemand Switch strategy underscores Radware's position to deliver products to market that are innovative, customer-focused and drive business-smart networking," said Roy Zisapel, President and CEO, Radware. "We are focused on addressing our customer's critical need for higher performance and advanced application delivery requirements when they need it, and our OnDemand Switch provides this desired platform, offering unmatched scalability, zero business disruption and maximum investment protection."

Radware's OnDemand Switch layer 4-7 operations are powered by state-of-the-art hardware architecture for optimized resource utilization, maximal application performance, top reliability and manageability. In addition, the OnDemand Switch provides continuous guaranteed availability and enhanced security of remote management system, as management ports use a separate, out-of-band management data path.

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
