Snapt launches exclusive alpha for Project Nova

Snapt launches alpha for Project Nova: a revolutionary cloud-native ADC solution for DevOps and ITOps designed for microservices, containers and hyperscale architectures. Project Nova offers even more uptime, reliability and performance for business-critical applications and services across both mature and agile network environments.

San Francisco, California, July 30, 2019 – Snapt, the pioneering application delivery controller (ADC) company, today announced the exclusive alpha launch of Project Nova.

Project Nova (https://nova-adc.com) represents a step-change in the way modern DevOps and ITOps teams can manage their networks.

Why your next ADC should prioritize East-West load balancing

Microservices architecture is the new black when it comes to designing software applications. Developers are abandoning monolithic application structures and adopting microservices, particularly for very large applications, because they are more flexible, highly scalable, easier to manage and can provide the agility that DevOps teams require.

But as more applications are decomposed into microservices, which all need to communicate with each other, this is putting considerable strain on traffic loads in the data center. Traditional hardware load balancers and Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) that were not designed to cope with microservices are struggling to keep up and are slowing down DevOps activities. The surge in data center traffic resulting from the rapid adoption of microservices demands a new approach to Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) that is optimized for “East-West” load balancing.

What to look for in a Next-Gen Software Load Balancer

Your company is growing, and that’s great, but network performance is suffering under the additional load. You’re hearing from the higher-ups that downtime numbers are unacceptable, and site load speed is costing you customers. The pressure is on to take control of these performance issues and implement a cost-effective load balancing solution that will scale with your company’s needs.
