Array Networks announced the immediate availability of subscription-based virtual application delivery controllers (ADCs) in Amazon Web Services Marketplace (AWS Marketplace), an online software store that streamlines the procurement process for customers looking to find, buy, and immediately start using third-party software and services that run on AWS.
As cloud and virtualization continues to expand its footprint within the business landscape, ensuring performance and availability for these new deployment models has become increasingly important. In addition, enterprises and service providers deploying on the cloud need to make applications securely available to a growing base of end users. Array’s vAPV virtual ADC for AWS provides optimized performance and availability for business-critical applications running on AWS.
Array’s new subscription-based virtual ADC offerings complement existing Array ‘bring-your-own-license’ (BYOL) solutions available in AWS Marketplace. In contrast to BYOL offerings – which require customers to purchase a license from Array – the new subscription offerings allow customers to purchase Array solutions directly from AWS on either an hourly or a yearly basis. For additional flexibility, both hourly and yearly subscription options are available in four different sizes (entry, small, medium and large) to meet the needs of any size business or deployment.
For enterprises migrating to the cloud, they can purchase all of the storage, server and networking they need on the AWS Cloud and scale as demand for their products and services grows using Array’s vAPV ADCs. And for those that have deployed Array ADCs in their own data centers, it is now an option to burst to AWS and have an identical application delivery solution on the AWS Cloud for back-up capacity.
“Customers are beginning to combine traditional hardware appliances with virtual solutions and cloud hosted solutions to create architectures that best suit technical and business requirements,” said Mr Paul Andersen, Director of Marketing at Array Networks. “We are dedicated to meeting our customers’ evolving application deployment requirements and expanding Array’s offerings in the AWS Marketplace is a great step to broadening access to guaranteed performance in virtualized infrastructures.”
Perpetual, monthly and yearly subscription BYOL licenses are available from Array to provide flexibility that is in line with the flexibility of AWS. Hourly and yearly subscriptions for entry, small, medium and large virtual ADCs are available immediately directly from AWS Marketplace.
