A10 Networks announced the aCloud Services Architecture designed to help IaaS data center operators deliver a rich set of application networking and security services to their customers, improving business agility and lowering total cost of ownership.

The aCloud Services Architecture includes a range of new products and integrations with 3rd-party software-defined networking (SDN) and cloud platforms that enable dynamic L4-7 security and application services in multi-tenant cloud data centers.

To meet the needs of public and private IaaS data center providers, the aCloud Services Architecture includes new virtual and hybrid virtual appliance form factors and new licensing options that enable on-demand application delivery and security subscription services, similar to the way other IaaS services are delivered. It also provides feature integration with industry-leading cloud orchestration and SDN platforms, including Amazon’s Web Services (AWS), Cisco Systems ACI, IBM SDN VE, OpenStack, and Microsoft Windows Server Hyper-V Network Virtualization and Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager.

These partnerships deliver policy integrations that enable A10’s physical and virtual appliances to dynamically and automatically provision L4-7 network services per tenant network flow.

Legacy data center network architectures are typically static, inflexible and manually provisioned, placing them out of synch with emerging cloud data center business models that are characterized by automatically provisioned services, increased business agility, and dramatically reduced cost of operations.
