A10 Networks unveiled the A10 Harmony Controller
April 2017 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
The solution from A10 Networks acts as a ‘one-stop shop’ for all secure application service management needs across multiple clouds and data centers. The new developments center on the A10 Harmony application delivery and security platform, offering a multi-tenant, highly scalable controller architecture that incorporates real-time analytics at a per-app level and central management and orchestration of secure application services across hybrid environments – from physical data centers to public, private and hybrid clouds.
With A10 Harmony, companies get native multi-cloud support for elastic load balancing and web application firewall across public, private and hybrid clouds, including VMware-powered private clouds, Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
Harmony also offers advanced analytics on a per-application, per-URL and per-request basis to give you granular, centralized visibility and actionable intelligence across your entire application portfolio, including your cloud applications. With Harmony, from a single dashboard, IT managers can gain insight into application performance and proactively add scale and optimize infrastructure before there is any degradation to the end user experience. Analytics are available across customers’ entire application delivery infrastructure and available for A10 Lightning, A10 Thunder ADC and HAProxy open-source load balancers.
The A10 Harmony Controller is available in two deployment models. The first allows organizations to use it as a SaaS offering managed by A10, making it very simple, quick and cost-effective to consume. The controller is also available as a customer-managed, scalable software solution within a customer’s environment in data centers or clouds.
The A10 Harmony controller and Thunder ADC integration, HAProxy load balancer analytics, and native Google Cloud load balancing and WAF offerings will be available in Q2 2017. Integration with other A10 services including SSL inspection, Carrier Grade NAT and converged firewall will be available starting in 2H 2017.
