Simplify Your IT Infrastructure

Safeguard and Accelerate Application Deployment

Give your IT functions greater service agility and scale, establish more predictable spending, and increase customer satisfaction, all as you transform your data center.

A new solution integrating the Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) and the A10 Networks portfolio helps accelerate application deployment onto networks with scale, multitenancy, and security.

Cisco ACI and A10 Networks' Joint Solution

A10 Networks and Cisco ACI joint solution integrates the A10 Thunder physical and virtual appliances and Cisco ACI. The solution provides a robust set of network application, security, and other Layer 4 through Layer 7 (L4-L7) automation functions. Customers can now realize the value of fully orchestrated and programmatically controlled L4-L7 services, service chaining, and centralized management.

Data center operators can use the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) integration with Thunder application delivery controllers (ADCs) to define a dynamic sequence of service functions. And they can do it in a way that can be abstracted from the concrete implementation. These functions include advanced distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation, SSL offloading, web application firewall (WAF) provisioning, load balancing, and traffic filtering on the A10 Networks Thunder platform.

The integration allows operators to address needs of agility and on-demand consumption while helping to ensure security and compliance in an increasingly shared infrastructure.

The Cisco ACI and A10 Networks joint solution can help customers accelerate, protect, and optimize the performance of their data center applications and networks. The comprehensive solution can strengthen the data center as it significantly increases the provisioning speed of applications and services, gains business agility, and reduces costs.
