Harness the elasticity of the cloud and A10 Lightning ADS to maximize application availability and resource utilization across your entire infrastructure. A10 Lightning ADS offers comprehensive load balancing functionality. It’s main advantage, however, comes from its use of cloud infrastructure to dramatically improve application delivery in cloud and data center environments.

A10 Lightning ADS uniquely enables the following cloud application load balancing capabilities:

  • Layer 4-7 advanced load balancing with autoscale: extends traditional load balancing services with content switching and session persistence.
  • Auto-scale: Leverage underlying cloud infrastructure along with Lightning ADS for elastic scaling of load balancer as well as application servers.
  • Policy-based traffic management: specify policies to optimally manage how user requests are fulfilled.
  • Close-loop application delivery: real-time application analytics drive adjustments to load balancing policies.

Whether your organization is migrating legacy applications from the data center or building new containerized microservices applications in the cloud, A10 Lightning ADS load balancing deploys in minutes through an application-intimate proxy in your availability zone. The elastic load balancing service enhances cloud application capacity, flexibility and visibility, without changes to application code.

Load Balancing with DevOps Agility

 

Rapidly integrate application delivery into agile DevOps and continuous deployment processes with zero downtime. Programmability is core to DevOps productivity. Use RESTful Service APIs to rapidly deploy new releases and monitor application metrics. ADS integrates with the ecosystem tools you already use: Docker, Jenkins, Chef, Puppet, Ansible and others. ADS complements your existing IT investments and helps your team increase deployment frequency, reduce mean time to recovery and accelerate the pace of innovation.

Use RESTful Service APIs to rapidly deploy new releases and monitor application metrics

A popular DevOps use case for A10 Lightning ADS is to selectively roll out new features by automating Blue/Green deployments with zero downtime. Use ADS to set traffic steering policies for inbound traffic across old (blue) and new (green) deployments while both environments remain online. Monitor blue and green server behavior and health metrics to adjust traffic steering rules in real-time. ADS improves productivity by providing a unified view across the entire the blue/green deployment process.

Load Balancing Meets Performance Optimization

 

Maximize application usage and user retention by automatically improving response times on every device.

Fast page load times are crucial for keeping users happy, which is why A10 Lightning ADS includes capabilities that make your cloud applications faster. ADS applies multiple techniques to minimize application latency:

  • SSL Termination: uses elastic cloud computing resources to offload the processing burden of encrypting and decrypting SSL traffic
  • Offload Common Tasks: Get the server capacity freed-up by offloading tasks like URL, Header or Response rewrites
  • Compression: reduces the size of application assets before transmitting to the user
  • Connection Multiplexing: Cut down overhead of connection management using a few persistent connections for serving all the traffic
  • Reduce Junk Traffic: Keep the traffic from known bad bots away to reduce load on the servers
  • Mobile content optimization: delivery a quality user experience by adapting application assets for mobile devices, based on the available application bandwidth, device resolution, etc.

 

A10 Lightning ADC policies ensure that the smallest possible assets are sent from your cloud infrastructure to users’ browsers, to significantly improve page load times. You get comprehensive performance improvements. Effortlessly.
