A10 Networks Announces Advanced Application Delivery with SoftAX for Amazon Web Services (AWS)

A10 Networks, the technology leader in Application Networking, today announced that its SoftAX virtual appliance is now available on the Amazon EC2 and VPC platforms for Web Services as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI). As part of A10's AX Series family, SoftAX is a software-based Application Delivery Controller (ADC) with advanced Layer 4-7 load balancing, application acceleration and security features. SoftAX combined with the AWS platforms enables customers to rapidly scale and optimize Cloud environments, increasing performance on demand.

Lee Chen, Founder and CEO for A10 Networks, said, "We are seeing an increased demand from customers and prospects to offer a version of our popular SoftAX virtual appliance on Amazon EC2 and VPC to ensure fast, secure and flexible Cloud deployments. SoftAX for AWS makes our advanced AX Series feature set available to a wider audience, ensuring customers do not have to compromise on functionality to deploy to the Cloud."

During the course of development, two distinct customer types emerged. The first are A10 customers who require the same level of AX Series functionality and support as in their own managed data centers, and now also within the Amazon Cloud. An example is one of the largest cable providers in North America who recently moved a production system to VPC with Application Delivery responsibilities handled by the SoftAX for AWS. This trend is similar to SoftAX deployments outside of AWS, as organizations move to leverage the most appropriate platform for specific projects.
