Application Delivery Controllers (ADC): A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) May 22, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – Maintaining consistent and reliable connectivity of the enterprise network is vital for modern data intensive enterprises. Globalization of business and growing complexity in business architecture are exerting significant pressure on enterprise network performance. The pressing need to scale up the performance of applications to enhance the quality of service (QoS) is creating business opportunities for technologies that help improve network performance of businesses. With numerous applications being run on a common IP platform, network management is becoming an extremely challenging element within enterprise IT. Service providers are also facing challenges in network operation amid growing traffic volumes caused by the increase in subscriber numbers, growing consumption of high-bandwidth applications, and proliferation of Internet-enabled devices such as smartphones.
The rapidly evolving threat landscape is another key factor necessitating service providers to secure their network operations using sophisticated security technologies and mechanisms. The challenging scenario is mandating enterprises and service providers to implement advanced network infrastructure technologies such as application delivery controllers (ADCs), which can impart reliability and agility in delivering critical applications in a quick and secure manner. A growing number of enterprises are investing resources on integrating ADCs within their IT systems. A large number of advanced ADCs available in the market integrate rule-based extensibility that allows businesses to customize the way in which ADCs function and perform. Several ADCs integrate programmatic control interfaces and open APIs that facilitate external systems such as data center applications, system and network management applications, and application servers to control and influence the performance of ADCs. Within an enterprise, ADCs can function as a vital component in diverse environments, such as Office Communications Server, Microsoft Outlook, ERP systems, and portals. ADCs are increasingly gaining visibility as a viable element in application development environments, in addition to their use in launching a protocol gateway between IPv6 and IPv4 to facilitate users gain access to IPv4-only websites with IPv6 functionality.
Demand for Virtual ADCs is gathering steam in the global ADC market. Defined as running the ADC software over a virtual machine instead of physically deployed hardware appliance, virtual ADC (vADC) offers improved IT agility, cost and performance benefits. vADCs typically cost about 25% less than hardware-based ADCs, thus offering a significant cost advantage, which continues to be a major factor fuelling the demand for these solutions. Deployment of vADCs is gaining traction especially in cloud computing networks and virtualized data centers as these environments require scaling up and down of operations as per the changing customer demand.
