Thunder® Containers solutions improve application performance and security for multi-cloud environments
A10 Networks (NYSE: ATEN), a company specializing in Application Visibility Performance and Security, has announced the inclusion of a new cloud-ready and ultra-light set of solutions aimed at providing secure application services. These are the industry's best performing container-based applications, with throughput up to 200 Gbps for A10 Networks Thunder Application Delivery Controller (ADC), Carrier-Grade Networking (CGN) and Convergent Firewall (CFW) solutions.
The inclusion of Thunder Containers extends the company's multi-cloud solutions portfolio and increases application performance, security and availability, enabling customers to confidently run their workloads in multi-cloud and hyperscale environments. Customers can therefore meet the growing demand for traffic, keeping service levels monitored even when deploying applications geographically, in public or private clouds.
The Enterprise distributes its applications on average on about five cloud environments different. The need to manage heterogeneous environments, in addition to the intrinsic complexity of applications, makes operational management very complex. For these reasons, companies need efficient, agile and performing solutions that above all provide centralized management and complete analysis of the entire application infrastructure.
