Webscale Launches A-La-Carte Cloud-Native Application Delivery Controller
June 12, 2017

Webscale announced an “a la carte” Cloud ADC (application delivery controller) that enables its customers’ web applications with access to essential, real-time capabilities that deliver seamless application performance, availability, and security.

The Webscale Cloud ADC requires no changes to be made to existing application infrastructure; simply deploy in minutes and at a much lower cost. Where existing ADC solutions lack flexibility with disproportionate capabilities and higher costs, Webscale has tailored its technology platform to a broader market with diverse needs and budgets.

“In our core markets of e-commerce, e-learning, and financial services, where application delivery is mission-critical, customers’ needs vary dramatically,” said Sonal Puri, CEO of Webscale. “Even across markets, it’s self-evident that companies need to derive the highest possible ROI from their technology investments because these are massive cost centers and not their core business. What’s more, in industries where disruption of production applications could mean millions of dollars per minute in lost revenues, customers need more than a point solution. They need end-to-end assurance of performance, security, and scalability delivered just in time. That’s the promise of a Webscale partnership.”

Webscale is built on software-defined principles across all its services. The intelligent data plane of the Webscale Cloud ADC is deployed across multiple cloud providers globally, is enabled per application, and sits in close proximity to the customer application backend, providing an unprecedented 360-degree view into all the sessions entering and exiting the application. The data plane senses application and session behavior and, combined with the decision engine of the Webscale distributed control plane, makes real-time decisions for performance, infrastructure scaling, and security. Customers can now influence application behavior in real-time as compared to other distributed solutions like CDNs or appliance-based ADCs that sit in data centers and cloud providers making reactive decisions.

The Webscale Cloud ADC delivers the promise of a true Software-as-a-Service through a multi-tenant solution, sharing and instantly applying enhancements on performance and security across Webscale’s entire customer base. This SaaS delivery model keeps data and sessions isolated per customer or, alternatively, enables a dedicated deployment within a customer cloud. Webscale is continuing to drive innovative service enhancements with a machine learning engine, extensive automation, and regular feature updates, all of which significantly reduces setup and maintenance costs.

Webscale Alliance Program members have access to the Cloud ADC and Cloud WAF service for their global customers immediately.
