Creating an application delivery controller for Developers (and why we use our own ADC)

Developers building business-critical applications need an IT environment that allows them to work quickly and securely. This means having reliable web servers that are always available and protected. However, in the agile world of modern application development, they can’t always wait for the IT team to set-up and configure ADCs for them. They need their own ADCs, and they need them to be tailored to their own needs.

When we developed Snapt Nova, we were our first customer. Our development team use Nova themselves (the process known as "dogfooding") to provide load balancing for Nova development and deployment. This post is about what developers need, how the right application delivery controller (ADC) can support and empower developers, and why Nova might be the best ADC for developers – or, at least, why our own developers seem to think it is.

Orchestrated ADCs Simplify Management and Scalability

As your business grows and adapts to changing market conditions, especially during these volatile times, the demands on your cloud IT infrastructure become increasingly complex. Your web servers and critical business applications need to be not only resilient but also flexible enough to handle fluctuating traffic patterns in real time. Centrally orchestrated Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) simplify these management challenges and enable dynamic scalability across any cloud environment.

Is Your ADC Ready for Multi-Cloud Deployments?

Moving to “the cloud,” as it’s casually known, is a misnomer. There isn’t a single, homogeneous cloud destination, but rather, a spectrum of different types of clouds ranging from private to public, and multiple varieties in between. In addition, there are multiple public cloud providers to choose from. As enterprises increasingly adopt diverse cloud strategies and run business-critical applications in multiple clouds, this has major implications for ensuring application delivery. And not all Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) are up to the job for multi-cloud deployments.

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.

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.

How to Get the Most Out of Free ADC Trials

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.

How Modern ADCs Make Deployment Easy

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.

When is the right time to upgrade your ADC?

“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.
