A10 Networks has rolled out its A10 Lightning Application Delivery Service (ADS), a cloud-native software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform designed to boost the delivery and security of applications and microservices across public, private and hybrid clouds.
As IT organizations embrace application-centric operations, they increasingly look for ways to establish hybrid environments that utilize traditional data centers while taking advantage of the cloud’s inherent agility and speed. A10 Lightning, a portfolio of new and forthcoming secure application services, helps with this transition. Its Application Delivery Service provides a cloud-native application delivery controller (ADC) that helps bridge traditional and cloud application environments.
The introduction of Lightning ADS uniquely positions A10 Networks to service this growing demand for ADC functionality in the cloud, increasing agility and reducing costs for customers who use public, private and hybrid clouds. A10 Lightning ADS enables a holistic “ADC-as-a-service” that increases operational agility, offloads IT administrators from cumbersome tasks and reduces risk. It represents a versatile, multi-cloud ADC solution that not only serves traditional web applications but is built for containers and microservices-based architectures.
A10 Lightning ADS will run natively on public cloud environments such as Amazon Web Services, an A10 partner, and on Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform.
“The launch of A10 Lightning represents a strategic step in the company’s vision to help customers with their requirements of secure application services for private, public and hybrid-cloud based environments,” said Kamal Anand, General Manager, Cloud Division, A10 Networks. “Organizations now have a simple, cloud-native and cost-effective way to add traffic management and security to their modern applications, while gaining application visibility and insights.”
