Optimizing Application Delivery for Red Hat
In this blog we look at Red Hat, one of the market’s innovative enterprise Linux OS providers, and how Snapt’s standalone ADC solution, Snapt Aria, meets the needs of Red Hat deployments.
If you’re running your business applications in containers and managing those with Kubernetes, you’re probably aware of the limitations of traditional Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) in this environment. Traditional ADCs simply do not have the scalability and agility needed for cloud native deployments. Whether you’re already up and running in containers or just getting started, this blog will tell you all you need to know for choosing the right ADC for Kubernetes.
Graduating from a successful alpha to a commercial public beta, Snapt Nova is poised to revolutionize application delivery control with unrivalled support for cloud environments, container platforms, self-learning and true hyperscale.
If you're considering whether you can afford running more than one server for your business, you're likely to discover that you can't afford not to. Even with the additional operational expenses, you’ll be better off having redundant servers because redundancy minimizes downtime for your critical applications and reduces the costs incurred by outages, which can be huge. The price of downtime is always too high for any business.
Like it or not, IT downtime is a fact of life. Systems fail. Outages happen. The failure rate of cloud servers is roughly 2% annually, for example. The larger the installation, the more frequently outages will occur. The best way to deal with these inevitable worst-case scenarios is to be prepared and minimize the downtime as much as possible.
Everyone wants a faster website. But if you’ve already optimized your site and response times have plateaued, you might think that you’re out of options for further performance improvements. This blog explains the steps you can take to make your site even faster.
It’s no secret that your website and business-critical applications are vulnerable to cyberattacks. When successful, the worst attacks can result in stolen customer data, illegal access to your servers and corporate data, malware and viruses that infect your customers’ devices, or a total server failure that prevents customers from accessing your website. Protecting your customers and your IT systems from malicious attacks is imperative for your business. But there are so many different attack vectors that it’s difficult to know where to start with online security.
Shopping around for an ADC solution is daunting. ADCs determine the availability, performance and security of your business-critical applications, so it’s understandably a weighty decision. While it helps that you can try out most ADC solutions before committing to purchase, it can be overwhelming to review and compare multiple trial results. To make this process easier, we’ve compiled a simple guide for evaluating ADC trials that will help you choose the right solution for your business and your IT team.
When evaluating Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs), ease of deployment should be high on the list of must-haves. ADCs ensure business-critical applications are secure, performing well and always available. But if ADC deployment is difficult, that can outweigh the benefits to application delivery. IT projects that are tough to deploy can be significantly delayed and over budget, which leads to higher total cost of ownership (TCO) and slower return on investment (ROI) than originally anticipated. To avoid this scenario with your ADC, it’s important to recognize common deployment challenges and how to overcome them.
“Timing is everything,” is a phrase that applies to a lot of things in life, and it’s certainly pertinent when making IT purchasing decisions for your business. If you invest too soon in a technology platform, you might miss out on upcoming innovations that could save money or greatly improve performance. Wait too long, and poor performance on the existing system could reduce employee productivity or repel customers, resulting in inefficient operations and lost sales. It’s not easy to determine exactly the right time for IT upgrades.
