I enjoyed speaking with Murali Palanisamy, EVP and Chief Technology Officer and Mark Vondemkamp, EVP Marketing and Business Development at AppViewX about their AVX 12.0 release which includes support for Amazon Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) v2.0, HA Proxy v1.5, NGINX Plus R11, and F5 BIG-IQ v5.1 in the AppViewX Platform.
These new application delivery controller (ADC) solutions are additions to the support already available for A10 Networks, Akamai, Avi Networks, Brocade, Cisco, Citrix, F5 Networks, and Radware. AppViewX manages, automates and orchestrates best-in-class and open source ADC services reducing SLAs from 16 days to two hours.
With AppViewX’s new support of Amazon ELB, HA Proxy, and NGINX Plus, NetOps customers can view and manage their entire inventory of ADCs, control administrative access on a granular level, delegate to DevOps or ops, and enable self-service and automated workflows when performing operational tasks like virtual IP management and server rotation. The AppViewX Platform now offers a new option to leverage the services exposed by F5’s BIG-IQ Centralized Management platform to manage, automate, and orchestrate F5 BIG-IP services.
“Digitalization has given rise to heterogeneous and complex environments that exponentially increase the likelihood of catastrophic mistakes,” said Palanisamy. “Our new ADC integrations give our customers more architectural options for greenfield environments while maintaining one management and automation methodology.”
With this release, AppViewX also announces the launch of its enhanced modular architecture across its Platform. The modularity facilitates better quality, operational scale, and support for third-party technology alliances. The software components of the AppViewX Platform can be tested more thoroughly and with more automation. They can be clustered and distributed to meet heavy user and performance demands.
The plugins for technology alliances can be released independently from the core platform, allowing for quicker support for new versions and new products. The REST APIs exposed by the AppViewX Platform enable integrations with a larger and more powerful ecosystem of technology alliances.
“With AVX 12.0, AppViewX is even better positioned to help network operations (NetOps) architect and deploy network automation in their brownfield and greenfield data centers,” said Manuel Rivelo, Chief Executive Officer at AppViewX. “Our new modular platform enables the customer to be even more agile and compliant when they deploy and manage network infrastructure services.”
AppViewX offers a suite of products in the platform, specifically ADC+, CERT+, SSH+, and SECURITY+ to cater to an enterprise’s evolving management and automation needs.
