Traditional ADCs (Application Delivery Controller) vendors such as F5 Networks or Citrix NetScaler have done little to address the needs of modern applications and cloud-native use cases.
This whitepaper outlines the key considerations that you should evaluate before you refresh your load balancers and highlights the experiences of global enterprises including TCO savings that they achieved by deploying the Avi Vantage Platform.
Some of the key challenges and considerations addressed in this whitepaper include:
- Not architected for cloud-native applications with lots of east-west traffic
- Proprietary hardware leads to expensive overprovisioning without elastic scalability
- Cannot scale up or down in response to traffic and without manual intervention
- Lack of consistent architecture for multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud use cases
